Thinking of moving to Belize for early retirement. What are the gun laws like? I've read that some areas are pretty rough. Plus, I like to hunt, mostly deer and wild pigs. Is there hunting in Belize?

Thanks,

We want to move to Belize. And from what my husband and I have read we will be packing 2 9's and a shotgun to boot.

You will most likely need to wait until you become residents before you can legally own a gun in Belize. The penalties for having a gun or even a bullet in your possession without proper licensing are steep and severe.

You will be arrested at the border if you come to Belize without a Belizean firearms licence for each and every weapon.
The chances of you getting one before you own something to defend and also establishing residency are very small indeed.

You might be right. But with the only other option to us is having 4 or 5 dogs. And stepping in all that sh#t is not for us. We will take our chances with the 9's and shot gun. Oh and a spear gun. The Fisherman had the only good suggestion.

Yeh, stay home because we want to build a society where only the criminals have guns.

Just curious, Are you afraid for your saftey or are you bringing something that you think someone else might want that you will have to defend? My opinion, Belize already has to many illegal guns.
