ONLY a Mexican Issued Permit to have a gun at your home or business is valid.. Do not bring your gun or ammo from the USA or Canada… YOU WILL BE ARRESTED

Some of these handguns are for military and police use ONLY

After the endorsement of the Federal Government so that citizens possess weapons in their homes for their defense, Big Data was given the task of looking for what brands and caliber of guns are authorized to acquire for that purpose.

We found a catalog of the Ministry of National Defense with weapons that can be purchased with them legally and not violate the law. From which we extracted a list of 7 guns that we present below:

1.  Glock 9 x 19


The reduced dimensions with respect to the size of the standard gun, make the Glock 19 considered as of multiple utilities. According to the site topgun.es this gun is used by many security agencies around the world, they explain that this is because it is appropriate to be covered or as a second weapon. For example, many elite pilots of the United States Air Force rely on the Glock 19 for their defense in critical situations. ( source )

2. Jericho 941F


At the Jericho 941F is also known as the “baby eagle”. They are Israeli guns designed for use in adverse conditions, especially in the desert. Jericho guns are widely exported from Israel and are also used by the public-private security of that nation. Jericho 941 serves as the distinctive weapon of Spike Spiegel, the protagonist of the Cowboy Bebop anima as well as the DC Comics character, Jason Todd, according to Wikipedia.

3. Semiautomatic P2226 Tacops


The P226 was developed in the 1980s as a replacement for the M1911-A1 of the United States Army. While the P226 was not finally chosen to be the standard service gun of the United States, it did not prevent sailors from adopting it as the weapon of their choice to perform special operations missions. It is used by military and law enforcement officers in 30 countries around the world, so it has developed a reputation as an almost perfect service gun. ( read more )

5. Pietro Bereta 92 FS

6. Herstal FNP9


FNP series weapons are hammer weapons that use a Browning camera system with an external extractor. The trigger module is housed within the polymer frame as an individual unit connected to the hammer. The magazine release button is held in place by a retaining pin that can be removed to allow the magazine release button to reverse. The trigger pull for the FNP-9 variant is generally 8 pounds in double action and 3 to 4 pounds in single action. While the bottom frame is made of high strength polymer, the slide is made of stainless steel.

7. SIG SAUER P250 compact


It is a Swiss weapon. In the list of any professional shooter, SIG Sauer always occupies a high place. The police, the military, the civilian shooters trust the GIS according to the experts.

Note. According to Armapedia specialists, consulted by El Big Data, more than allowed brands, the Mexican citizen has a range of permitted sizes. Overcoming these preset calibers, weapons become “exclusive of the army and armed forces.

Armapedia’s contribution is as follows:

«The Federal Law on Firearms and Explosives indicates in Article 9 that weapons of the following characteristics may be possessed or carried, under the terms and limitations established by this Law: semi-automatic pistols with a caliber not exceeding. 380 (9mm.), Excepting the .38 Super and .38 Command caliber guns.

« Revolvers may also be carried in calibers not exceeding .38 Special, except for the .357 Magnum caliber. Moreover, ejidatarios, cumuneros, and laborers from the countryside, outside the urban areas, may keep and bear with one demonstration, a weapon of the aforementioned, a rifle of .22 caliber or a shotgun of any gauge, except for the barrel length less than 635 mm. (25), and those of a caliber greater than 12 (.729 or 18. 5 mm.) ». (JH)
