Collectors, Sports Shooters, and Hunters
Under Brazilian law, CAC members register their weapons with SIGMA and are monitored by the DFPC. Sports shooters and hunters are entitled to possess large quantities of small arms and can hold restricted weapons. Collectors are allowed to hold old models of weapons that are restricted to the armed forces. AnEEx provides data about the number of collectors, sports shooters, and hunters per military region.
The quantity of small arms and light weapons held by collectors was estimated…
The result is 155,096 small arms.
