    Bicholui,
    As most countries in Europe, handgun hunting in France is not permitted. I believe that handgun hunting in Spain is allowed however I am sure that it comes with lots of restrictions and regulations. For more information on handgun in Spain, visit the government website Gobierno de EspaƱa - IntervenciĆ³n de Armas by clicking here, and if you do speak Spanish use Google translate to translate the site. I do not know what the regulations are for handgun hunting in the Principality of Andorra, but you can contact the Embassy of Andorra in Belgium by going to their website at www.andorra.be.

    Je vous remercie beaucoup Monsieur Philippe!

    I was researching on the region, consulting to shooting and hunting clubs and other public institutions, but nobody was able to give accurate information. It's like a taboo for most of the people.

    To be honest, I found ridiculous the European laws concerning hunting with handguns. Practical shooting (IPSC) is allowed, but not hunting. It is a pity because there are excellent trophies for that purpose.

    Merci
