You had it right the first time :D

My firearms are my toys :)

There is an old American saying. "Its not how old the boy, but how expensive the toy."

When I get a chance - I'm going to add this to my Wallpaper rotation (that chanegs every minute). I'm going to take the coordinates and get a clean image first though.

I will look if I can find the other plants of FN in Portugal, Japan and the US next few days. Would make I nice collection. Heck I may not be allowed to collect FN guns but nobody said anything about FN plants.

Yes, why? I thought that Belgians were allowed to own most coventional firearms.

Solidarnosc will most likely response in detail, but it is not very firearm friendly in Europe in general.

I have several friends from Belgium visiting from work for the next few weeks, one of which is a very big gun guy (Glock .40, S&W .44 mag. and a bolt action with optics)

Recent law changes have made it even tougher for them to obtain firearms. :confused: Reloading is near impossible.

I gave him a copy of Shotgun news and there was some serious crying going on. :(

And when I asked about him about obtaining a PS90, he said no way would he be able to purchase one in Belgium.

Thanks,

Hoover
