Most popular in India will be some WW2 relic, would you buy that?
You have to choose a handgun based on what is most comfortable to you not based on what others think.

I guess what he means by 'most popular' is that which will fetch more money if he has to sell it in future or which will be more easier to sell.

I think Colt will be better to buy as it is more popular brand name in India.

Normally it can't but in some cases it can be sold for example if licensee wants his license to be cancelled etc.

As far as I know, they can be but the licensee will have to forfeit a firearms licence for life.

Well i can't imagine that situation with all the effort taken to import it. I don't think i can do it with my ppk but is some is just looking to make a profit out of it then its ok i guess.
