Switzerland – Lucerne Trade Fair (Waffenboerse Luzern)

The Lucerne Trade Fair is a weapons market primarily, however they also have stalls for militaria, knives, deactivated weapons and lots of mixed items of collectable interest.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – Resolve permits for the purchase of weapons on the stock exchange:
The Lucerne police are present during the stock exchange with a stand at the entrance to Hall 3. Citizens residing in the canton of Lucerne and foreign nationals with corresponding weapons ownership can have a weapons purchase certificate issued on the stock exchange after proof of a valid Swiss criminal record extract (not older than 3 months) and passport/ID. In order for the Lucerne police to be able to differentiate between the usual purchase certificate (WES, CHF 50.-) and an “exception permit small” (AB small, CHF 50.-) – for newly banned weapons – required for collectors or sports shooters, the exact indication of the type of weapon on the applications is absolutely necessary. All other visitors must bring a valid permit (WES/AB small) from the competent cantonal authorities of their canton of residence.
