Apply for yellow weapon possession card for sport shooters

Service Description

Basically, you always need a permit to acquire and possess weapons and ammunition.

In general, firearms are objects intended for attack or defense, signaling, hunting, distance injection, marking, sport or play, and in which projectiles are propelled through a barrel or in which solid bodies are fired in a targeted manner, the propulsive energy of which can be introduced by muscle power or another energy source and stored or held by a locking device (for example, crossbows, arrow launchers).

A distinction is made between firearms requiring a permit and firearms not requiring a permit. A detailed list of weapons for the acquisition and possession of which you require a weapons possession card can be found in Annex 2 of the Weapons Act.

Sport shooters who pursue shooting sports as a registered member of a recognized shooting sports association are granted an unlimited permit, which entitles them to acquire a total of up to ten single-shot long guns with smooth-bore and rifled barrels, repeating long guns with rifled barrels as well as single-shot short-barreled weapons for cartridge ammunition and multi-shot short and long guns with primer ignition (percussion weapons), provided the other weapons law requirements are met (Yellow Weapons Possession Card).

It is recommended that you inform yourself in detail about the regulations of the weapons law before applying.
