Cyprus is pretty strict. Only airguns and basic shotguns are allowed subject to acquiring a license from the Police.

Showcase guns have to have the barrel sealed and I think a portion of the firing mechanism removed or something like that.

Overall Cyprus is not a good country to be in for gun enthusiasts yet amazingly we have more battle rifles per capita than most countries in the world!

Here's what the Police did when they recently sold a variety of guns to collectors...

"All weapons that will be sold will be disarmed in a way that they cannot under any circumstances be used. The bolts and firing pin have been removed, while the barrel has been glued with metal. "

Dude, we're a shotgun enthusiasts paradise.
We practically invented the art. We'll show you how to down a Chikla the size of a golf ball from 300 feet.
