    When my dad was in the USAF we lived in Singapore for 4 years. I remember them having very strict gun laws. You need to be a member of a gun club (which there is only one for the wealthy), you need a permit to own it, and once you buy it it has to be locked up at the club.

    The United States of America has the freest gun laws in the world, and in recorded history; do not believe what people tell you, unless you research it yourself.

    And listening to a Bolivian official tell you about their laws is shaky as well. They are just a couple of clicks above a banana republic....

    Everyone in Afghanistan has guns. I do believe they have them in open air markets and bazzars. They also have RPGs and other things in their market which you cannot buy easily.

    This raises a question for me: What countries DO allow concealed carry to foreigners? Or how about other countries that even let THEIR citizens carry?

    All it takes is for one official to ignore that pretty little piece of paper, and that might well cost, quite literally, everything you've got, possibly including your life. Prepared for that? No? Then, I wouldn't recommend doing it.

    Czech Republic allows citizens. Not sure how it works with foreigners.

    Hey, Senor, you give me 100 of your American dollars, and I give you my official permission to carry your pistola in my country. In fact, I will write my brother Jose's number right here on your permission form. If anyone gives you trouble, you just call Jose, see, and tell him you gave me the money.... Do not worry, compadre, we just love you cowboy gringoes like the George Booooosch.

    Being of light skin & hair, I have no desire to go to Bolivia. Their government has gone far left and they really do not like yanquis. Also see Venezuela. U R Nutz.

    I have worked several times in Bolivia and have spent a total of six or seven months there. It is one of the safest countries you will ever visit. Petty crime is a problem in places like theft from motel rooms or pickpockets but its no worse than Denver.

    I agree with those that say you are better off unarmed. Any encounter involving a gun is likely to draw a lot of attention, and not everyone will necessarily know the law.

Just think of the outrage we feel when an illegal kills an American and then imagine what it would be like with no US Constitution to protect one's rights. Of course carrying in a foreign country might be a way to obtain free food and lodging while one visits.

    I hear the Czech Republic is pretty relaxed on its gun laws and even allows CC on an almost "shall issues" basis. Israel I believe is the same way. Brazil used to, I don't know why they stopped?

    I'm not sure what other nations are shall issue for carry tho.

    Israel is not the same way at all. Israel is very restrictive and pretty much only allows settlers to carry. They do have a very highly trained populace but they are not very forgiving with concealed carry.
