Greetings from Austria
« on: March 13, 2019, 03:29:39 AM »
Hello to everyone!

My Name is Martin and I am from Vienna, Austria.

If everything works out fine, I will buy an old CZ 85 Combat duotone this weekend for my wife as her first handgun.
After some research about the gun I ended here in this forum.

It will be the first CZ in our family and I am really excited about it.

I think it will be in good company with the rest of my guns:
SIG P210 (old Swiss one)
Colt Python 6"
Colt Detective Special 2"
Colt Woodsman Match Target
Steyr AUG Z A3
Beretta CX4 Storm

Have a nice day!

Welcome to the forum. Nice collection; looks like you have divergent tastes between handguns and long arms as well as special permission for more than two handguns? A few years ago, I was in a Joh. Springer’s Erben store in Vienna and looking in awe at many nice, older Colt and S&W revolvers selling at very attractive prices. The store assistant said that as the average gun owner in Austria can only own two handguns, the first one is a full-size Glock and the second one would be a compact-size Glock; hence the attractive prices on the classic revolvers.

Thanks for the welcome.

In Austria you can get a permit to own handguns and half-automatic rifles. At first you can only have 2 free slots.
After 5 years you can upgrade your permit to 5 slots and then every 5 years 2 more slots up to a total of 10 slots.

Or you are a sportshooter and participate in competitions. If so you can try to upgrade for more disregarding how long you have the permit.

In my case, I'm a sportshooter and after 6 month I upgraded from 2 to 6 slots. And currently I'm waiting for my new expansion from 6 to 12 slots to get approved.

Sounds easier to get handguns in Austria than Kalifornia... ;D
