Weapons possession card as an expert or expert permit application

Service Description

Weapons or ammunition experts who wish to acquire and possess firearms or ammunition for their activities require a permit for this purpose. Scientific or technical purposes, testing, appraisal or examination, and similar purposes are recognized as reasons for acquiring firearms and ammunition. Proof of scientific activity will usually be requested from you in the form of publications or other evidence of expertise. An appraisal activity must be separated from a collection activity. You will not be required to be publicly appointed and sworn in by a Chamber of Crafts. The permit is usually issued to you for firearms or ammunition of any kind.
