Firearm motivation

If the prospect of applying for your firearm licence seems daunting, look no further than Red Rimfire team to assist you in all your SAPS applications and renewal of your firearm licence.

A good firearm motivation should:

1. Be factual – stating the relevant act and your right to protect yourself etc.

2. Be to the point – what and why you need it. Remind SAPS of facts they already know about crime stats in your area. You can maybe include some news rapports (e.g. from News 24). The document in its entirety must be not too short and not too long.

3. Demonstrate where and how you will store the firearm – in a SABS-approved safe; bolted down to floor and wall etc.

4. Include proof of training and experience – all your competency certificates; firearms-training certificates; and/or sports or clubs membership certificates.
