I was under the impression that it was illegal for Americans to posses a firearm in Mexico even if you have TR/PR status. With that said, I just had two conversations where I was told I was incorrect. Basically both said you cannot own a gun that use certain types of ammo (the types of ammo military or police own). Can anyone point me to a source on-line or now if this is accurate? Thank you!
You can own firearms in Mexico but you need a permit. You also need a permit to transport a firearm. There are restrictions of the type of firearm. SEDENA (Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional) is the agency responsible for issuing permits.
