    Smile Hello from Japan. Really.

    Hi, folks. New to the forum, thought I'd check in here first.

    I'm living in Japan right now (civilian--not military), but moved here from Asheville, NC.

    Of course I can't legally own ANY guns here, but enjoy the shooting sports and legally carry concealed when back home (near Kannapolis).

    I'm looking forward to learning a lot and hope to contribute when possible. My username is the same on other forums you may visit.

    See ya' around.

    No, firearms are heavily restricted in Japan. But you can obtain all kinds of weapons there - stun guns and martial arts weapons of every type, crossbows, you name it. And the quality of the martial arts hardware can be really, really good. If you get to Tokyo, the Asakusa district has some shops in the underground arcade there. Nagoya should have some great options also. Visit a martial arts supply store.
