New member from Holland

Hello everyone,

My name is Jan-Wouter.
I live in the Netherlands.
I've been a sportshooter since I was 16 years old. I'm now 36.
I'm close to finalizing purchase of a Kimber Rimfire Super and that's why I joined this forum.
We recently installed a steel plate rack for large and small caliber pistols and I didn't have a pistol in .22 lr yet. So I thought... Let's buy the prettiest one.
We are only allowed to have five firearms in Holland.
I have a Colt Defender in .45 acp
A HK USP Elite in 9mm, which will make way for the Kimber
A Colt MK IV series '70 government in 9mm ( in mint condition)
A S&W model 686 CS-3
A S&W model 19-4, 4 inch pinned and recessed in mint condition

And a whole bunch of antique firearms for black powder fun.

Hopefully I'll learn a lot and meet nice folks on this forum.

I don't think we have any other Dutch members!! It's nice to see that we are international!! Please send pictures of your pistols and a range report for the new Kimber!!

Let us know some more about the firearms laws in Holland. It is always interesting to compare with other countries. Enjoy your shooting and be safe!!

Welcome to the forum. .22 LR ammo is just now starting to become a little more plentiful here. Hope you have better luck in Holland.

BTW, why do they only allow 5 firearms? You only have two hands, how much more do they think you can shoot with 6 or 60?

Welcome to the forum. I've been to Amsterdam a few times and enjoyed the visits, the food and the people.

Welcome, are your guns inspected every so often by the police over there?

I like your philosophy. It holds true for guns, women, cars...

I was over visiting your way last year for a short time, near the town of Eindhoven. I didn't know people had guns. It seemed that EVERYONE had a bike.
