Good for you

Good for you.

The problem to bring ammos to NIcaragua could be in Custom Deparment at the airport, because according the DAEM (police´s section for guns) the importation of ammos are prohibit, but usually nobody has problems at the airport.

On the other hand I remind you according the law 510 you can bring 2 guns just once, so if you already brought from abroad 2 guns you are not able to do it again.
