This is an increasingly common question South Africans are asking every day. There is still a stigma around firearms in South Africa. This is however being torn down at an accelerated rate. People are opening their eyes to the possibility that firearms are not big bad death machines, but instead a beacon of hope for the defenceless. Guns are nothing more than a few pieces of metal and plastic. A lifesaving tool, to be used to preserve innocent life as a last resort. We think firearms are a fantastic idea! Here is how to get one.
We specialize in the entire firearm licensing process, holding your hand every step of the way.
Below is a brief overview of the simple process.
You will need to do your proficiency training in order to apply for your competency certificate at SAPS.
Benefits of doing the combination module include:
So in total to do your handgun and legal will only cost R1850, all inclusive (workbooks, open book tests, closed book tests, firearm rental, range fees and ammo). You can purchase your books from us at any time, complete the open book tests at home in your own time, then make a date to come do the closed book tests (very simple – no need to stress about them) and the shoot. Your results will then be uploaded onto the PFTC and within approximately a week, you will get your certificate and statement of results.
Once you have your certificate and statement of results, you use these to apply at SAPS for your competency certificate. We can compile your entire competency application pack. All you need to do is provide us with some info and collect an envelope containing your entire application pack. Our fee for this service is R550.
As soon as you have received your competency certificate from SAPS you may apply for your firearm license (you can purchase one from our partners at Gunnery Arms and Ammo). In addition to selling firearms, we are able to compile your entire firearm application pack. Just like the competency application, all you will need to do is provide us with some basic info and collect your completed application from us. Our fee for this service is R1150
You only pay for the service we are rendering at any given time, so you do not need to pay for the whole course up front.
