Which EE Countries Can You Own Guns?
I miss shooting a lot, was really into it in USA.

As I'm scouting around places I may want to live in the future, I've wondered where it's possible to own a few guns for shooting recreationally.

While I wouldn't base an entire decision on it, it would be nice to be able to hit the range every so often while living abroad.

Anybody got any input?

Wikipedia is quite good for this kind of info - I think Czech Republic is the best of them all:

RE: Which EE Countries Can You Own Guns?
I am from Czech Republic and it´s pretty easy to get gun license.
All you need is to get stamp from doctor (formal thing) and then pass test, that consist of written part and practical part. Written part is a test, where you circle options a,b,c,d and it´s few chosen questions from 480 total. Practical part is basic manipulation with a gun (CZ75 or ZKM; in case of hunting license it can be shotgun too).
But there´s one big problem for foreigner to get this license and it is the fact, that the test is available only in Czech language. Anyway practical part can be carried in any other language, that instructor can speak.

No one really cares why you need semi-automatic military rifle, you just circle you want it for sport and personal defense. You can basically get license for concealed carry of loaded Kalashnikov, no questions asked.

Last few years there are efforts from European Union to restrict guns between civilians by rubbish laws and Czech government surprisingly stands behind people and fights for people´s right to be armed. But we will see what future brings. 99% of gun holders claim, that they would rather dig their guns to ground and claim they have lost it than give it to police.

If you want more informations, feel free to ask.

Forget about Croatia if you thought about it. It is very difficult because you need a "reason". So people who own guns are 90% hunters and 6, 7% are sportsmen. There are no real gun ranges in Croatia except maybe one or two in Zagreb.

Best (practically central European) country for owning guns is Slovenia. Big gun culture and respect toward weapons. Famous youtube channel Polenar Tactical is from Slovenia. Check them out.
