Com­mer­cial ren­ting of fire­arms

The Sys­sel­man­nen has stop­ped al com­mer­cial ren­ting of fire­arms, which are nee­ded for tra­ve­ling any­whe­re in Sval­bard out­side the sett­le­ments for pro­tec­tion against poten­ti­al polar bear attacs. Accord­ing to the Sys­sel­man­nen, the­re is no legal base for ren­ting out fire­arms. An inte­rim solu­ti­on, which might enab­le ack­now­led­ged wea­pon tra­ders in Lon­gye­ar­by­en to rent fire­arms to per­sons who hold a licen­se to own such wea­pons, is cur­r­ent­ly being worked on.

No step any­whe­re in Spits­ber­gen out­side the sett­le­ments without a sui­ta­ble fire­arm! 
Not being able to rent one would make life qui­te dif­fiu­lt for indi­vi­du­al tou­rists.
