  • POU SA licence


    I have a Category A,B; POU 1,2,3 on my license.

    When I fill out a PTA to acquire a category B firearm, if I tick 1, 2 and 3 for POU am I suppose to get a club chit to be able to use that firearm for POU 1?

    I know a category B firearm can be acquired without a club chit, as I have done so, for use POU 3, 2 and 1! When my license is due renewal, will SAPOL say you have x number of firearms for club use (POU 1, 2 and 3), we need X number of club chit so that they can be used for POU 1?

    In a nutshell can someone explain to me the role club chits play in category B firearms use?

    From SAPOL website

    "License Renewal

    There is no requirement for a specific number of shoots to be completed to be considered 'active' for longarms, however attendance at one shoot is considered a minimum. Reg 21 (9).

    A club chit will be requested by Firearms Branch for the renewal of Class A, B or C licences endorsed with purpose of use 1 regardless of how many other purposes are endorsed on the licence (Section 12 and 19 allows the Registrar to ask for any documentation or certificates to support the issue of a licence or renewal.)

    Return To Top
    Purchase of Firearms for Club use (POU1)

    Chits will be requested for applications to purchase Class B firearms where POU 1 is the only purpose endorsed on the licence. A chit will not be requested if other purposes of use are endorsed for Class B."

    it spells out clearly that you can acquire without a chit if you have other POU, but what role do chits play in license renewal?

      Just tick 'Club use' and send that PTA off.
      We don't use chits for individual rifle purchases.
