Customer Question
Hello, I have planned to...
Hello, I have planned to purchase a leisure home in the US hopfully Montana. I am a Norwegian citizen and intend to be so in the future even it my contry has become a a bona fide communist country the last 5 years:-)

My question is as a very keen hunter will I be allowed to take a fwe of my guns into the US and leave them here
not needing to bring them bakc and forth all the time.
I assume they will be considered a personal item as any other property and stored in a gun locker they should not present a problem!?


What is the current regulations in this respect??

Kind regards XXXXX XXXXX n6940 Eikefjord Norway..

You have to file for an import permit and also to possess the firearms must have a valid, unexpired state license.
