Hi guys,

My name is Eduardo and I'm from Brazil. I joined the practical shooting last year, but unfortunately the laws of my country are absurdly restrictive and the shooters face many difficulties to get access to any equipment associated with this sport. Anyway, we have many shooters here, even with so many barriers.

I hope to learn with the forum members.

Where in Brasil are you from? I have family in Sao Paulo, Santos, Tatui and throughout the region and the gun laws are what keep me from moving there. And no fala Portuguese.

Wow! What super nice reception! Some even wrote in Portuguese. Muito obrigado! Thank you very much!

I live in northeastern Brazil, in a town called Joao Pessoa, but I work remotely for a company of Rio de Janeiro. I am a fanatic fan of Corinthians, a soccer club, so I often go to Sao Paulo to watch matches there.

In US I have an aunt who lives in Florida, in a town near Miami. I haven't had the opportunity to visit your country. Maybe one day? :)

Here we have a law known as the law of disarmament. Please my friends, never let your politicians do it in your country! The citizens only has access to weapons with caliber like .38 Super and .380 ACP. We need to go through a huge bureaucracy to get a possession permit. This authorization allows us to have the weapons inside our residence. Can we carry the gun? Never! Can we transport disassembled and without ammo in our car for the stand? Only once a year, with a specific authorization.

Shooters need authorization from the Brazilian army to be able to purchase restricted caliber weapons and to get a permit to carry weapons disassembled and without ammo to the stand. I am four months ago waiting for a request response I made there. I know cases of friends who have waited more than a year to receive a negative response. It's frustrating! Here only shoots who likes a lot. Who is just curious to know the sport gives up quickly.

Welcome to the forum, out of all of the places I've been to and worked at in Brazil my favorite so far has been a little town called Vazante near Pato da Minas.
It was a whole different atmosphere not tainted by tourism like Rio or Angra dos Reis.

Never been there, I pretty much just went were I was told.
I have a good friend that lives in Soa Paulo but I prefer the smaller places not touched by tourism, the people just seem more genuin but it's the same anywhere in the world like that.
I spent three months in Vazante a few years ago on a job and Xmas day of course everything was shut down so we went and explored a big cave system and then went for a swim in a mountain stream with one of the guys we were working with that had access to the property near by.
Wasn't as good as being at home with my family but felt very much at home with the people I met there and had some good adventures and memories from the trip.
