Hi guys !!! I live in Argentina, and recently purchased a PT 24/7 PRO .45ACP, and an OSS Tactical 9mm. I formerly had a Bersa Thunder 9, which is made locally, but had to let it go... had many troubles with it. I must say that Bersas sold over here don't have the same quality control as the ones for the global market.

This is one of the last times I used the Bersa before selling it.

Welcome aboard! I'd be very curious to hear about the gun laws in your country and what you can and can't own. Some of us may be headed your way if things don't get better here soon! :D

Welcome from Saint Louis, Missouri! Maybe we can work out a deal for an export Bersa (a Smith & Wesson, a used Glock...) for some of that great Argentine beef. I've had some grass fed and bet you know where to find some of the good stuff!?!? Eh?

Thank you guys !!!


I'd be very curious to hear about the gun laws in your country and what you can and can't own. Some of us may be headed your way if things don't get better here soon! :D
Gun laws in Argentina are a pain in the @55. To register as a gun user, you need:

-a physician and a psychiatrist to certify you're pysically and mentally ok to own a gun. (2 forms)
-a shooting instructor to certify you can operate a gun (1 form)
-some other burocratic forms, criminal record, etc.
-30 to 60 days wait

Then you get your credential that allows you to buy guns. The credential expires every 5 years. Once expired, you have to do everything again. Forms, criminal record,etc.

When buying a gun, you must pay for it first, fill 2 forms, and wait at least 1 month until the process is complete, then you receive both an "ownership credential" for that specific gun and an ammo consumption credential for that specific caliber... and then you can go to the gun shop and pick the gun you already paid a month ago. Everytime you buy ammo, the ammo consumption credential is requested and your puchase is recorded. Up to 1000 rounds daily is allowed... so, ammo is only sold to registered users, and only to users of that certain caliber. You can't buy 45 ammo if you don't own a 45 gun.

You can't have: 50 cal and larger, Suppressors, full auto guns, Semi auto guns with detachable magazines of caliber larger than 22LR (for this, you need to fill another form, that it is almost always denied)

So... I don't think heading this way is a good idea at all. Gun laws became increasingly restrictive during the last 10 or 15 years, lots of anti-gun morons around here.

Bienvenido, Caaarlo. I had heard that about Bersa's quality in its home country. I own a Bersa .22 which I have not been entirely happy with.

I fully anticipate these kinds of "laws" to become in effect here within the next 4 years.
