I am Ton, new member over here and living in the Europe,
First for all US members i wil explain a little about gun laws in Europe
In Europe the firearms laws are completely different than in the US,
Self-defense with firearms is totally prohibited, and getting a firearms license is a long process.
First of all, you must be of impeccable behavior, and absolutely must not have been in contact with the police for an offense.
Once you are eligible for a firearms license, you may only purchase one firearm for the first year, and must pay 130 euros for it and after that a maximum of 5 pieces (unless you are a gun collector)
Each year the permit must be renewed, renewing or changing costs 60, - per case
As I am a firearms / ammunition collector and have no restrictions on numbers and types,
I have fully automatic weapons, silenced firearms, and hidden firearms on my license.
Recently I also have an ammunition collection permit
My interest is in all firearms techniques, and how it is made & processed,
Youtube was a very good resource, but firearms enthusiasts are increasingly limited in sharing their interests,
So I ended up on this website,
We are just gun lovers, and have just as much trouble with criminals as non gun lovers.
Why then are we treated like criminals?
In Europe, every firearm is required to be registered.
If criminals then use firearms, the government has no control over it, so the legal firearms owners will be tackled harder again,
The never ending story,
