The full weight of Palau's ban on all hand guns and rifles has been enforced with the sentenced of a man to 12-and-a-half years in jail for possession of a firearm.

Inis Remoket pleaded guilty to possessing the weapon and ammunition after being arrested in July last year.

The court heard there was an incident at a bar where it's alleged Remoket taunted another customer with a hand gun, which he later threw away when police arrived.

The ban on hand guns and rifles came into effect in Palau 1982.
