    Welcome to GT.

    I think most of us are from the USA. Tell us about when and where you shoot..and the laws.

    There are beautiful Italian women and there are others.:shocked:

    When making a request, you need to make sure he takes pictures of the correct women.

    Thank you all for your welcome ! :thumbsup:

    I can get American Eagle 10 mm ammos here, but I prefer to reaload myself and at moment I am using :
    9.5 Grs of Hodgdon HS6 powder with a bullet 170 Grs FMJ
    COL 31.6 mm that is a bit less than 1" 1/4

    Laws about firearms in Italy are a bit sever.
    We can only hold and use at the range a limited number of hand guns which is set to nine and no limit at all for rifles (I own several Springfield Armory rifles including three M1 Garand).
    If we want to own a larger number of hand guns we have to ask a special collector license but we have severe rules with it: we can't bring firearms in collection outside home and we cant even keep ammos for these firearms.

    We are only authorized to bring the unloaded fire arm in a box from home to the range and, in order to carry it loaded for personal defence, we need a special authorization which is not released easily by local authorities unless there are working conditions which require a defense ( i.e. carryng money, precious or golds).

    We must be happy with what we got, especially if we look at other European countries like UK where the guns where suddenly prohibited.

    As for Italian women, what RWBlue said above is correct, we have some beauties but also some women which probably eat too much pasta and pizza so that it is easier to cross them over than to turn around them. :rofl:

    Welcome, Bizio.

    He is correct, the local laws are severely screwed up.

    I was stationed in Italy for three years and once shot at a local range for a squadron competition against the local Italian unit, etc.

    Their no military caliber laws led to some interesting discussions, like hearing two Italians debate .40 S&W vs .25 ACP for target work on accuracy inherent to the caliber, etc.

    Bizio, i was in Milan in 2005, I spent the majority of my time in FRG near Pordenone and Udine, and Venezia when I could get away.

    Thank you for your welcome.

    When I said above "no limit at all for rifles", sorry, I ment to say that we can keep an unlimited number of rifles since they are all considered by local laws to be weapons for hunting purposes, even the 30-06 and the equivalent of 7.62 Nato which is called .308" Win.

    We cannot keep any ammo or military rifle, the fully authomatic weapons are forbidden and only the semi auto are allowed. All the full auto rifles like M16, M14 are modified and made for civilians without the third option on selector. If we are get with 9 mm (9x19mm) ammos it is considered a crime since only Police and Army can use thjis caliber, civilians are allowed to use 9x21 IMI caliber instead.
    Same problem and deregulation was for .45" ACP before 1997, till that year it was forbidden and we could only use .45"HP which is very similar to .45" ACP.
    After 1997 the .45"ACP was no longer considered a military caliber so that I am lucky and I can use here your fantastic 1911s

    MrMurphy, I was in the 90s in Pordenone, I think to remember there is a US military station there, I saw many cars with a plate "AFI"
