OUR GUNS

Years ago it was commonplace for wing-shooters traveling to Argentina to bring their own guns and only a small percentage would actually rent guns from the lodge. Although it is still possible to bring your own gun, today just the opposite is true and 80 percent of our guests are now renting guns from us.

Here at Sierra Brava Lodge, we offer a wide variety of guns to rent, with more than 100 guns in total, ranging from 12, 20 and 28 gauge Brownings, Berettas, and Binellis; as well as semi automatic and over and under pieces.

Due to the high volume of shells necessary to successfully participate in our “high-volume” dove shooting, we have a program in place to continuously add new guns to the gun room on a regular basis.

Renting vs. Bringing Your Own

 

Dove hunting in Cordoba, Argentina means ultra high-volume shooting. It takes the right gear and the right gun to handle the extreme shooting conditions. One of the most common dilemmas people have is whether they should bring their own shotguns or rent a gun at the lodge. In most cases we would recommend renting, but there are a couple of exceptions. Here are some common questions and important things to consider…

Can I bring my own guns?
When it comes to traveling with firearms there are some restrictions, and also airline policies can change from time to time. It is important to check with them directly before planning to bring your own guns to Argentina. Specific gun-entry paperwork must be completed accurately and submitted to the lodge in advance of your trip. The Argentina government charges a gun entry fee, which depending on the daily fluctuating exchange rate, converts to approximately $120 per gun.
What shotguns are best?
The most common (and comfortable) gun for dove shooting in Cordoba is a semi-auto 20 gauge. In general, the preferred models for the high-volume shooting conditions are the 20 gauge Beretta 390 and 391, although comparable models work well too.
Why rent guns?
Sierra Brava maintains a terrific selection of 20 gauge semi-autos as well as a smaller selection of 28 gauge over/unders. The rental guns are cleaned each night by the Sierra Brava staff for optimum performance in the field. Remember that in one day of dove hunting in Cordoba a shotgun could cycle through several thousand shells. This is a lot of wear and tear on a gun... renting our guns can extend the life of yours. Renting makes the travel experience quicker and easier.
Why bring my own guns?
Our guns fit most adults, but smaller women and children may want to bring their own custom-fit guns. Left-handed shotguns are very difficult to find in Argentina. If you'd like to shoot a left-handed semi-auto, we recommend bringing your own.
