    Default Bringing guns to Nicaragua

    I was reading a bit of info on this on the other site but didn't see anything mentioned about guns being brought in by a Nicaraguan. I would eventually like to have a shotgun and my pistol with me and thought it would be best to have them in my nica wife's name to import them. Any thoughts?
    Also, can you legally modify a shotgun in Nicaragua? I would like to saw mine off for better handling, kinda like the police have down there.

    I highly recommend buying them in Nica, way too much hassle to import them.
    You can buy any gun shotgun or hunting riffle you want in Managua's gun shops.
    they are about $100-$200 bucks more expensive then in the USA,but you avoid all the B.S associated with it,that what I did .
    My favority gun shop in Esteli is El Cazador
    Here is a thread on it on the other site

    Under this one.....http://www.nicaliving.com/node/14453

    Your right Jack!
    How about Home Land Security for the PRNL?

    So will the guns be in a safe place when you are in the USA Jack?
    I doubt you will want to pack them back and forth each time, but you don't want them to end up in the wrong hands while you are away.

    I entered a drawing today at work for a Browning & Citori, over and under 12 gauge worth $1500. I bought two tickets for $10 each! Hope I win. All I will ever do with it is shoot clay pigeons (they taste like shit).

    They would be safe and packed away while I am in the States. It wouldn't be feasible to carry them back and forth.

    I don't have residency in Nicaragua so I was wondering about bringing them in my wife's name, since she is Nica.

    I have been Grandfathered in for so long with Perninate residency and licensed to carry a pistol that I don't know of what is required, but I do know that it is strictly controlled....

    The long and short of it is as follows from my Gringo neighbors experience.....

    He wanted to buy a Marlin Glenfield .22 from a friend,and had to do it in his Nica wifes name because he does not have residency.....

    She not being a previous gun owner here had to take a gun safety course from the National Police to demonstrate she knows which end the lead fly's out of and a few pointers on when to use it and when to not.....
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...
