Yes, I'm going to the Land of Smiles again......I am told and have read of a mystical block of about 50-80 gun stores back to back somewhere in Bangkok.....As apparently Thailand is a very pro gun country.

Last time I was there, I asked the taxi driver to take me there, but he didn't know where it was and dropped me somewhere I got lost....Does anyone know for sure where it is?

I know I can't buy or bring back anything....But at least I can fondle and bring back memories....(of guns you Perves).:D :D

You guys that think Thailand if full of hookers are only partially right. Yes it has an "active" nightlife. But trust me, there are many many other things to do there.

As go to watch a "real" Muay Thai boxing match....where honor and sportsmanship is valued more than winning.

Have tailored shirts made for $25 bucks, suits for $150.

Do a lot of scuba diving on the islands

Have my ugly *** worn out tired feet massaged nightly for $10 bucks for 2 hours.

There are plenty of temples to check out the culture is fantastic not to mention the food and BEER IS CHEAP!!!!

Thailand is one of few countries that actually love Americans. And if you travel you will see that ever since the "War on Terror", we Americans are not exactly welcomed with open arms as much anymore....Our money is, but we are not.

Chicks with sticks.

My wife loves Thailand, a lot of the things 50 Freak mentioned are right on - inexpensive clothing, massages (not the sexual kind), cheap food, it's all there.

I haven't personally been there, but perhaps some day!

I think I'll be heading South by then, eventhough I will be in Phuket for a day or two (hopefully not more than that, since I don't care for Phuket that much) before that.

Umm, so is the visit to the Bangkok gunshops successful? Any pics? :D

A tour group I was in many years ago drove through that street/area, and from I could remember I saw lots of .22 rifles including one that was a very good AR clone (no, not that Mitchell abomination, either). I think at that time they had regulations against larger or military rifle calibers.

There are ranges all over that you could rent stuff from, but the rounds are very expensive. I have seen 1911's, BHP's, a SPAS-12, revolvers, etc. You could have personal firearms, too, but I think you needed to have good connections with the police in order for your permits to be approved. Some friends we were visiting in Thailand had friends with such permits, and we went to the woods to shoot a Ruger 10/22 and a S&W .38spl at the durians. :p

I think shotguns are relatively easy to come by if you have a legitimate defense/security issues, like guarding a jewelry store, or a farm, etc.

That's for legal firearms. On the other hand, illegal firearms, mostly military arms, are apparently quite easy to obtain there as well.
