Hey, any Finnbros online? I've just settled a contract for working in Iso Syote for the upcoming winter. What sort of fun with fun things can a foreigner have in Finland, and is there any paperwork etc. that needs filling out beforehand?

Finn-fag here. You can go to open ranges with your buddies that own guns, as long as they take the responsibility and watch the show.

The paid indoor ranges / shooting clubs pretty much just require you to pay a fee, and you get to blast with their guns.

If you start practicing some actual gun sport, like the Practical (3 gun), Reservist shooting, etc, you usually need to pay the membership fee, and you get to use the team's / club's firearms. You can apply for your own semi-autos for sport use after 2 years of active, proven membership. Funnily enough, semiauto hunting weapons (that can include AKs and ARs), are faster to acquire and may be used in sports too.

You have to figure out if there are ranges near the place and then figure out if they have rental guns. If they don't, you're going to need some finn hasguns to bring you along.

You could try asking ylilauta/jorma whether there are any ranges around there. Sometimes they don't even have a website.

Um Finn friend. Do they sell civ version of rk95 in your local fun store?
>>
>>27796062
Hah, you wish. I paid 2k eur for mine, and I lucked out, because she's in great condition. Expect to spend time searching and to pay a lot if you find one.

In some, yes.
It's usually the civvies trying to sell their old Sako they once bought to new guys. When I got my semiauto 7.62x39 license and put up a notice that I'm buying such rifles, I got 3 different offers. Shame I didn't have 1.5k € to shell, so I instead opted to go with cheap Norinco 56S instead.

Thanks for the input. What about hunting? Are there any winter permits for non-citizens?

Found this after digging a bit. Will probably sell in a week.
>>27796169
That's actually a good question, I don't know if they give out permits to foreigners. Let me dig in some legalese for a bit and see if I can figure it out.

You need to pass a written "hunter's exam" in order to get permission to hunt in Finland. After that, you need to pay the "game management fee" once every 12 months in order to keep your permission up, and carry a proof that you've paid this. Usually it's the official slip that you get with the local Hunting magazine, Metsästys, with your bank's stamp on it, but there's digital methods nowadays too.

To hunt the big game (Moose, Bear), you need to also complete a shooting test: 4 shots, 90 seconds, and all shots need to hit this sure-kill area of around 20cm diameter on the cut-out target at 75m. You pass that with your rifle, and you get rights to hunt said animals for 3 years at the time.

Dunno how the laws apply to foreigners though, but at least EU citizens are free to move and hunt on each other's lands, as long as you take care of the paper work. You could always just walk into a cop station and ask a clerk there to instruct you.

I'm not seeing any mention about citizenship being a requirement in the lawtext. It should follow that any foreigner fulfilling the requirements should be eligible.

Sako stopped making the M92S (semi-auto RK95) in the late 1990's and used rifles go for >2000 Euros.
