NHSA Newsletter

VOL. 12 (33) - 06-07-2016


Dear Member,

A number of our members have new firearm licence applications which are outstanding for longer than six months.

There is a possibility that we can take this issue up with top SAPS (CFR / FLASH) management within the next few weeks.

If your new firearm licence application is outstanding for more than six months (only outstanding for longer than 6 months) - please send an Email to [email protected] before 24:00 on Tuesday 12 July 2016 (use only this Email address as Emails in this regard sent to any other Natshoot Email address will not be included on the list):

Provide the following information please:

ID number, Initials and Surname;

Full detail of firearm applied for (make, kind [handgun, rifle, shotgun, semi-auto rifle], serial number).

Indicate intended use of firearm applied for (i.e. self-defence; occasional hunting or sport shooting; dedicated hunting or sport shooting)

Date and Police station where you submitted the new licence application;

Attach a readable scanned copy of the receipt you received when submitting the new licence application;

Please do not feel let down if we do not include your name on the list if you do not 100% comply with the required information we need as stated above, as we cannot speak to these people without the facts.

We do not mean to say we shall sort out your problem, but we can surely bring it under top SAPS (CFR) management’s attention.  Hopefully they can then expedite the evaluation of your application.

Kind Regards

Herman Els
