SOUTH AFRICAN FIREARM LICENSING PROCEDURE:
STEP 1:
The first step that anyone that intends to license a firearm must take, is to complete the required proficiency training course that corresponds with the TYPE of firearm that they wish to license. So if you want to own a handgun, you would need to complete the training for Handguns, if you want to own a rifle or shotgun, you would have to complete the respective courses for each. The same applies to automatic weapons or carbines and black powder firearms.

Here are a few of the training facilities in and around Cape Town:

False Bay Firearm Training Academy – Glencairn Quary, Kieth Bierman, 0827740063. City Guns – 57 Hout Street, Cape Town, 0214249030.

LRTJ Holdings – 52B Gemini Street, Brackenfell Industrial, 0219811188.

STEP 2:

Once you have completed STEP 1, your next step is to go to your local police station and speak to your DFO (District firearms officer) and request an application form for competency to possess a firearm. This is a simple application form in which you must provide character references like close friends or family which the police will then do telephonic interviews with. The purpose of this is to ascertain that you are of sound mind and body and that you do not possess a criminal record or participate in violent or dangerous behaviour.

STEP 3:

The Third and final step, once you have completed step 1 & 2 is to go to your local firearm dealer and purchase a firearm. The dealer will then provide you with an SAP271 license application form which you need to complete, attach your motivational documentation to and hand in at your local police station. Then once your license has been approved, you may take possession of your firearm.
