10acious I did a search for firearm as you suggested, a lot of good info there, thanks! I'm surely glad I worded everything as I did because Oh man, ha! There are some funny threads that went nowhere in that mess other than over board.

I actualy had something realy funny to say (IMHO) but deleted it to avoid the topic of you know whats doing you know what to the you know who's. hehehe

camaraderie Noonsite is the place! Here's data on Mexico for example:
The only firearms allowed in Mexico are sporting guns which must have a valid Mexican hunting licence, obtained in advance. Other firearms must have a permit, and be declared to the authorities on arrival, who will keep them in custody until departure. The penalties for having an unauthorised gun on board are severe and can lead to seizure of the yacht and imprisonment of the captain. should search firearms here if you are not familiar with the major debate around carrying them while cruising. I choose to defend myself in other ways due to the inconvenience firearms bring to the cruiser rather than anything else. A nice automatic weapon would be a comfort in some places but the inter-country regs just make it too much of a pain for me.

erps Noonsite dot com has information on a number of countries that cruisers visit including firearm regulations IIRC.

Firearm regulations for different Countries.

Where can one find the information regarding this. Second worse thing I can think of is getting into a bind over having a paticular firearm on board that one country allows but another doesnt.
