Some notes on the prevalence of firearms on Tenerife – they will be rare – perhaps 10% of a community will have guns and ammunition will be rarer after 30 years.
Bodyguards can use .38 pistols and high profile or threatened individuals can apply for a concealed carry license. Around 70,000 targeting shooting pistol licenses have been issued in Spain as opposed to 8,000 authorised to carry a combat pistol for self defence. This contrasts with total 3 million arms registered with 1.1 million Spanish gun owners.
Hunting weapons are available. Legally Magazine capacity for semi-automatic centerfire rifles is limited to 4 rounds for sports shooting and 2 rounds for hunting; semi-automatic shotguns are limited to 3 rounds. Rimfire rifles, regardless of type have no magazine limit. Rifles chambered for certain cartridges with military origins are prohibited, such as .223/5.56 NATO and .50 BMG. The .308 Winchester and 7.62×39 mm (AK round) cartridges are only permitted in bolt-action, repetition or single-shot firearms.
WW2 era weapons from chases left in case of allies invasion.
1950s Spanish Army rifles like the Mauser derived FR7 , FR 8 and CETME model 58 ancestor of the heckler and Koch G3. These could be army surplus stocks or NATO gladio caches.
gPostwar SMGs like the Star Z-63, Z84 or CETME C2could also be in sane caches.
Spanish police have guns like the universal service pistol & H&K MP5 , G36 rifle and G3 rifle
The Spanish Army also uses the USP and G36 with other arms – there are multiple units on Tenerife.
- 160 automatic pistols / revolvers
- 1400 target pistols
- 58,500 other weapons (hunting / target long arms – say 30% rim fire rifles, 60% shotguns & 10% centre fire rifles )
- Say 1000 modern military guns (say 80% G36)
- Say 1000 modern police guns (say 80% pistols)
- Say 1000 antiquated military guns (say 80% rifles – 50% WW2 and 50% post war)
- Criminal weapons say 2,000 (say 80% handguns – then 10% shotguns, 5% SMGs and 5% assault rifles )
Plenty of material for a random weapons table.
This is a plentiful supply for the post disaster population of Tenerife – however ammunition is likely to be precious after 30 years of post fall conflict. Very few communities will be able to reload brass – some might have engineered the process but with primitive power producing single shot weapons – all will not be as it seems.
