Folks,

We are scheduled to hunt in Spain in 2022. Any personal experiences you might have in bringing your own guns into Spain would be appreciated.

Moved to Cadiz in 2002 and then moved to Sicily in 2005.

Any information I would have isn't worth much.

Almost every single Spanish outfitter I met and Jagd and Hund said that bringing your own rifles is not worth the hassle.


I was a poor enlisted schlub in 2005, and spent my money on Namibia. Though I will say this, at the time Ibex were twice as expensive then as they are now.

Spanish bueracracy is worse than anyplace I have ever lived except for Italy. So I would probably agree, if possible.

Several years ago, on arrival, they would stamp your passport with a special stamp that included a description of your forearms. You better have those firearms with you on departure.

Mark,

Bringing your guns into Spain is quite a simple feat.

It might not be worth the hazzle for any lazy outfitters, but definetely is for so many hunters that like to hunt with their own guns.

In fact, most of our clients do bring their own.

You just need a paper from one of the Spanish Consulates in the US, send it your outfitter here and will have your Spanish Gun Permit well issued in advance and have it ready when you arrive.

Be aware, that regardless the fact that you bring a gun or not, to use one in Spain you will need a Fire Arm permit, not just a hunting license which you also need, but a gun permit.

Without it you cannot legally borrow and use your outfitter's gun.

Regards from Spain,

Alvaro

Get a permit via your closest Spanish consulate.

that along with your 4457 and some information on where you are hunting and where the firearm will be during your entire trip. You'll go over all the paperwork at the police station in the airport.

Did the Slam last year. As easy as any other country I've ever visited. Just the usual SOP paperwork.

I stand corrected.

Not all internationals are allowed in.

I hope we all get over this mess soo.

Thank you for the head up. Everybody should check the latest traveling regulations enforced by any country he wants to travel.

Charlie,

We'll be hunting ibex (1 species), fallow and mouflon. My first time in Spain and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm hunting Spain this coming November. I'm planning to use the outfitters gun, but starting to reconsider. I've only used an outfitters gun one other time and really prefer to use my own.

With the exception of last year, I typically hunt in Spain a couple times a year when I'm there for work events. It's a royal pain traveling with a gun anymore and I always use my guide's gun. They typically have very nice rifles such as Blaser, Sako, Sauer, etc. with nice scopes Swaro, Zeiss, SB, etc. I don't see any reason to deal with bringing a rifle along.

I believe you still need a gun permit even when using someone else's gun.
