I inherited a 357 magnum last year, maybe even before, and have been trying ever since to get a licence for it. (First registration for me) After getting both competency certificates, the SAPS remittance of receipt of application and the signed permission to store the firearm, the executor of the will will still not release the weapon as I haven't got the right paperwork! WTF! I have been sikkeling for over a year and still have not even fired it yet.
Can anyone help as to what I need, the police in Strand told me I could store the gun with my competency and my signed permission to store document. Does anyone know otherwise? And should someone break into my house and the weapon is used in self defence, will there be any comeback on the executor?
Any help greatly appreciated!
