    I may be very mistaken . However , l heard that shot guns were allowed to be owned in Vietnam.

    Shot guns can be bought in some countries in southeast asia , and also in Japan where hunters have little opportunity to buy an bolt action rifle.

    That limits the hunting opportunities very much , as far as this exists. Often it's just about drive-hunting on wild boars.

    Thank you so much for helping me understand , Kurpfalzjager . Japanese Miroku shot guns are among some of the best imported over under shot guns in Bangladesh.

    No pictures cause we were too busy hauling ass. Killing the tiger gave away my small teams position. For whatever reason the kitty let me slide right past him and tried to get the next man. It was a matter of a couple of feet. Maybe i didnt smell like food
    Strange but true story from a strange but true place

    My uncle Paul Henderson was on guard duty of the perimeter in a camp in Vietnam. He saw movement and challenged it in English, French, and a local dialect (with the help of friends).. Everyone agreed since it had not responded ,they would shoot at the next movement. They did, with a 50 cal., and when going out to inspect later, found a very mutilated tiger!
