Possession of weapons as a result of inheritance Request permission

Service Description

If you take possession of weapons or ammunition after the death of the weapon owner, you must notify the competent authority immediately. As heirs, legatees and beneficiaries of a condition, you acquire and possess the weapon legally, even if a weapons law permit has not yet been issued. However, you must apply for the issuance of the permit in due time. You will receive the permit if the decedent was the authorized owner and you are reliable and personally suitable. You do not need to be knowledgeable. Inherited weapons requiring a permit must be secured with a blocking system. A locking system is not required if, for example, you are the authorized owner of a firearm requiring a permit as a hunter or marksman or markswoman. If a blocking system that complies with the state of the art in safety technology is not available for the inherited firearm, you must submit an application for an exemption from the obligation to block.
