this is all in the northern most portion of what they call the "lake region" that is in the south of the country. It's considered a temperate rainforest (more so in the south than where these pics were taken)
You can own firearms here. Just lots of red tape and trips to the police and a psych evaluation to do so. Firearms are expensive too. So it actually cheaper to import some with you from the states. It's something like 2 pistols per eligible person in a household, beyond that # requires membership in a sporting club (along with some sort of sporting permit). Technically you can own machine guns and silencers here too. But, I'm sure the local police would look at you sideways when you brought in the receipt for them to sign off on.
There is some weird ammo limit thing here too. Like only 100rds allowed at a time or something ridiculous like that. But, Im not sure if that is even enforceable or if it is even enforced at all.
