    Hello Gents,

    Does any of you know what kind of forearms legislation they had in the Third Reich. Was it legal to own firearms for hunting for example?

    Hi Lars, yes it was legal to have rifles/shotguns for hunting. Some original permits have been shown on the forum in the past.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Happy New Year to you too!

    For a quick overview, see the Wikipedia article:

    For a far more detailed study on Third Reich gun laws (with a focus on the disarming of Jews and political opponents), see:
