With the exception of ranchers, hunters and guides, like you Frankie, I hope the compensation is 3 hots and a cot.

Very hard to legally own a handgun in Mexico unless you work in some specific capacity for the government or cash carrying trucks as far as I know.


Shotguns and hunting rifles can be registered at the military base in Hmo and kept at your residence, but any transportation requires that you belong to a gun club, are going to a sanctioned event, or have a hunting and a transport permit which are expensive, good for one only year, and they will make you jump through the hoops to apply and renew. 


I think its runs close to $200 per barrel a year, but its been years since I gave mine up becaise of the hassle. Violators usually go to jail.

you can own certain caliber rifles, shotguns, and pistols!


the Mexican constitution provides for that for it's qualified citizens and qualified foreigners.


legally these firearms need to be registered as bullshipper described! 
legally owning a firearm and transporting one are two different things!


bullshipper describes most of the process in his second sentence! 


there are firearms that qualify as hunting guns and that type of transportation permit.  there are firearms that do not qualify in that category, and most likely qualify in the competition transportation permit!
two distinct types of transportation permits, with two distinct laws governing each category!

p.s. my ownership of firearms rifles, shotguns, pistols are federally registered.


my transportation permits for my 1) hunting firearms and 2) my competition firearms, are  regional. 
IE; all of the following states and only these states, Sonora, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Baja California!


the following is required for the two transportation permits;
* annual gun club membership
* annual transportation permits


 to hunt all of the above plus an annual hunting license 
* a tag for the species your are hunting, IE; dove, duck, mule deer, whitetail deer, javalina, turkey, bighorn sheep, ect.


i personally apply annually for all of the above PLUS my guides license.
 i am a licensed guide in the state of Sonora! which places me in a different level with a GREATER VETTING process!
 i am legally authorized to allow qualified foreigners importation of their legally qualifying firearms! 
the VETTING process is vast, requiring photos front and side, finger printing, ect:

If someone wanted to bring a hunting shotgun from the US to San Carlos where would you go at the Nogales border crossing to have it registered so that you could transport it to San Carlos? Is it even possible?

Read Frankie's posts 6 & 7 carefully. You need to be vetted first and don't believe that can happen at the border. If you want to hunt contact him. He is a licensed guide and has the weapons available. Cheaper in the long run than going thru the process to bring your own

No way at the border. There is a posted warning against doing that at all Mexico border crossings. If you cross any firearm without a permit, prior to crossing, you will likely spend at least 6 months in a Mexican jail. Same goes for air travel.

Jail for ammunition too...A US Marine was sentenced to 5 years for crossing into mexico from California with just ONE 45 cal cartridge in his car...He forgot it was there. It took months of diplomatic wrangling to spring him...
