Legal Constraints when buying Firearms

Legal Constraints when buying Firearms

Defined by FCA, Act 60 of 2000

 

 

 

Take note of the following process, especially if you are buying your first gun:

 

  1. You must first complete the prescribed proficiency training for the type(s) of firearms you want to procure. The training would cover the law, plus one or more of the following modules: Handgun, Shotgun, Rifle, Semi-auto rifle (a.k.a. hand machine carbine)
  2.             We don’t offer this training, but we can refer you to a convenient training centre.
  3.             To save time in future, we suggest you complete as many of the modules as possible right away. Since they are formal qualifications, these never expire.

                                 

  1. With your Proficiency Certificate(s) you then apply to the SAPS for a Competency Certificate.
  2.             The Competency Certificate is considered your personal permit to possess a type, or several types, of firearm, i.e. Handgun, Shotgun, Rifle, Semi-auto rifle.
  3.             Expect this process to take around 3 months, possibly longer.
  4.              To save repeating this process in future, we suggest you apply for Competency in as many of the modules as possible, right away.
  5.             We don’t offer formal assistance with preparing application forms, but we can refer you to specialists.

                                 

  1. Once you have your Competency Certificate, you can then apply for the specific firearm license
  2.             The “white” license is your permit to possess the specific firearm you have selected and bought.
  3.             Shooting Stuff does supply you with the SAPS 271 license application forms, with our details and the firearm details included.
  4.              Expect this process to take around 3 months, possibly longer.
  5.             While we do offer guidance, we don’t offer formal assistance with preparing the application forms, but we can refer you to specialists.

                                 

  1. You can collect the firearm from us, or we can ship it to you, only once you have received the actual license card from the SAPS.
  2.             Bring the card with when you collect.
  3.             If we must ship the firearm, please e-mail a scanned copy of both sides of the license card to our firearms admin team, or send pictures via WhatsApp. See our contact details page.

                                 

  1. Quantity restrictions on firearms are managed via the firearms licensing process. You may buy all the firearms you desire, but Shooting Stuff may only hand them over on production of a valid firearm license CARD for each specific firearm.
