Okay. This may nominated for the most stupid question ever on the forum and I'm pretty sure the answer is a big NO! Has anyone been to Guatemala and could I take my instrument of protection out of our country and into theirs? If so what forms/permissions are needed? My wife has planned this trip for our family and after reading about it I sure would like to carry my very small S&W 642. We have a guide but pretty much it will be just 4 of us. I will practice all the safety precautions like being in before dark, staying out of less traveled areas, trying not to look like a bunch of tourist in bermuda shorts, with a camera around my neck, traveling in large groups when possible, carrying minimal money, having multiple copies of our passports, etc. - but I would really like to carry my ultimate protection against bad guys.
