    Default Handgun and rifle competency - one application

    Good afternoon members.
    I recently applied for a new competency certificate for manual loading rifle(have never owned a rifle before) and renewal of my handgun competency(my current competency and licence was about to expire)
    I ticked the boxes on the Application For Comp Cert SAPS 517 for both rifle and handgun, thinking that, if successful I would receive a competency certificate for both, but when I went to the DFO office to collect my certificate and noticed that it only indicates handgun. The only explanation I received was that I only paid R70 for the application. Does this mean that I should have paid R140 if I wanted a cert. for rifle as well? Unfortunately the person that handled my application from the start was not there to explain to me why this happened, because I did explain to her what my intentions where when I handed in the application form and she also went through it with me that day.

    Can anybody shed some light on this as I couldn't find a similar issue like this when searching for it on the forum.

    When I applied for competency, I applied for all 4 competencies at the same time. It cost only R70 for the lot.

    Did you actually do the manual rifle competency and did you submit the statement of results stating that, at the time of application? If not, that might explain why it’s not there.

    Renewal and additional competency are two different forms. Thus in your case cfr probably just ignored the extra tick as accidental.

    Thanks for the reply. I did the rifle competency and submitted all the required supporting documents and as I said the woman handling my submission checked my paperwork before accepting it It seems that I should rather have asked on Gunsite beforehand rather than rely on the people at my local DFO for the correct info...
