  • Good day, I don’t own my own Hunting rifle but planning to get one. In the meantime once I have my competency certificate can I borrow a rifle from a friend with a letter stating that he borrowed me the rifle or is that not allowed any more. Will gun shops allow me to put down a deposit on a rifle and only collect it once it is paid for.

  • pesta

    Hi is true that I can get my licence approved but for myself to get a licence card took another three months to be issued,if so why this long time cause they won’t give me a gun with a printout,pls help me

    • admin

      Hi Pesta

      You should take this up with the SAP, as I previously replied it is difficult to answer you as it is an administrative process handled by individuals



  • Keagan


    From what I understand from previous posts one has to have a competency cert. in order to buy a firearm but not necessarily a license. Is this correct?

    Would me being a farmer be a good enough motivation? Would you say this can aid me in the licensing process?


  • pesta

    Hi I posted a comment I’m waiting for an answer pls

    • go247

      Hi Pesta

      Maybe another week to three weeks, difficult to say as it is an administrative process handled by individuals

      I tried emailing you but your email address does not exist / is not working.

    Hi admin I posted some comment on the tenth of october it hasn’t been replied yet pls help,I want to know that as I bought a gun before I got my license if my licence doent approved are they going to refund my R6000 for a gun and my R900 for the application?because they told me that I must first buy a gun before u apply for a licence pls help me

    • admin

      I’m really not in the position to answer this questions, you should ask this to the dealer who sold you the firearm and the guy who helped you with your application, but the information is correct, you need to buy a gun before you can apply for a license.

  • Emile

    I just want to find out is it possible to collect my license card at the firearms head office as the office were I applied has not done so for to weeks now and this makes me very concerned.

  • pesta

    I think I’m getting more help thanks admim,ok I want to know before I applied a firearm they told me that I must first buy a gun before applying so I did a paid a full amount for a gun and then I went to the legally armed people for an application so I paid an amount of R6000 for a gun and a R900 for an application the total was R6900,what I want to know is if happened for my application to be denied will they bring back my money?

  • mohamed

    I phoned the CFR today they say my competency is approved on the 2nd of March,I’m not sure when I
    Can collect it from Randburg dfo,also how long will the firearm License take to approve?

  • Viv23

    My husband has a fire arm competency certificate which he did in 2004 and he never went to the police station process,can he take the certificate to the police station

    • admin

      I take it that he now wants to apply for a competency certificate. If he did the training at an accredited training facility the SAP should not have a problem with the certificate.

  • Francois

    Hi There, I have done my training and now need to apply for competency and a new license. I want to make sure I do everything right though, do you guys assist in this? Also, I did the training last year and I have left this for almost a year now, is that still fine?

    Thanks you!

  • André van Coller


    My firearm (hand+rifle) licenses were rejected. I did sent a 50 page appeal (compiled by a attorney) back to the appeal board but it is still not registered on the system that they received it… What would you suggest I must do and can you maybe assist? I have my firearm competency card.

  • Anthony

    Hi There, i have completed my training course and need to apply for my competency, after this i will need to apply for my firearm license, how quickly can i get this whole process done? I dont really feel like waiting for 8 months and have the risk of being declined and waiting for another 4 months.

    • admin

      Licenses take currently between 6 months to a year to get approved.

      Normally applicants hand in the competency application as well as the application for the new license in at the same time (but the SAP first do the competency and only attend to the license application after the competency is approved).

      If you have a good motivation there is no reason why your application should be declined.

  • sean warnick

    how much does it cost all together to get a new license?

  • Regan

    The license (still in my I.D book) is dated 1992 and I was to have renewed my license in Sept. last year (2011). I have my competency certificate and now need to have this renewed although the time frame has expired. Can I still renew? What is the procedure and can you guys assist?

    • admin

      You can’t renew your license any more. If your license is dated 1992 you had to renew your license between 2005 and 2008.

      Due to the current pending legal action you are still legally in possession of your firearm. According to an interim judgement in this case the current firearm licenses issued under the “old” firearm act are still valid. However the final outcome of the case can obviously change this with immediate effect!

      I sent you an email regarding the options.

  • Robert Cross
