If Argentina is on your list of hunting destinations this year, you'll be very glad to hear that the gun importation procedures for this country have gotten exceedingly simple. Stuart Williams had just returned from a birdshoot there at press time and had this to report on the situation: "Hunters who have traveled to Latin America are aware of the tedious and often expensive procedures you must follow to bring your own firearms into the country you are hunting. That's no longer the case in Argentina. In the interest of attracting more hunters, Argentine authorities have made gun entry procedures as simple as possible. It is no longer necessary to do any advance paperwork - no photocopy of your passport, no photographs, no hunting license, no application form to be sent off to a consulate, no nothing. You just show up at the Buenos Aires airport, declare your guns on arrival and sign a form, which the airport police will fill out afterward, noting all your gun information. You then pay a $20 processing fee for each gun, and you are underway. Upon departure, you have to present the gun(s) once again to prove you are removing them from Argentine territory, pay $10 for each gun, and you are done. It has to be one of the simplest gun entry procedures in the world."
