    I found this very interesting reading. Thank you. I am surprised at the fact that an Italian can own an unlimited number of weapons when you stated “no limits on hunting rifles.” What type of hunting is done in Italy?

    You stated that there is a limit of only 200 rounds of ammunition. I shoot that much or more when I go to the range, which is at least once a week. How easy is it to replenish your supply of ammunition? Is there special paperwork that needs to be completed if you are an avid shooter and shoot a lot?

    Two final questions:
    1. are suppressors/silencers allowed with any type of license?
    2. are private citizens allowed to have concealed carry permits?

    Again, thank you.

    PS A couple of years ago I decided that I needed a softer shooting shotgun (aging shoulders) than a couple of pump shotguns that I had. So, I traded them in for a made in Italy Benelli M4 (plus a little cash). Wow, I wish that I had bought the M4 years ago. I actually enjoy 12 gauge shotgun shooting again. My many thanks to Benelli.

    Hi Rob

    The Hunting Licence allows to hunt different kind of species, like wild boars, pheasants, hares and ducks, while in the mountains for instance chamoises and hazel grouses.
    I used to go hunting some decades ago.

    I concur that 200 rounds is not much, in fact that is what I shoot at the range every session, twice a week, but replenishing it is not a problem since I reload my own ammo. The most important thing is never to have more that 200 cartridges for small guns since that is the maximum limit allowed.
    People that for sport need to have more than 200 rounds ready need to have a special permission.

    Suppressors/silencers are not allowed.
    Private citizens can be allowed to have concealed carry permits only if they can prove that they need it for personal safety, like for instance jewellers and security guards.

    Regards.

    Sergio
    Buy the gun not the story and don't be drawn to an example that is not original, originality isn't something that can be restored. I've never seen a 1911 I didn't like.
