    +1 for appeal.

    I'm also leaning towards appeal. Will get my refusal letter tomorrow and will take it from there.

    So... Turns out it was refused due to lack of motivation. That is a first for in more than ten apps.

    Maybe if they read past they cover page they would have noted the remainder of the motivation?
    That refusal is such a cop out! They refuse to give applicants a framework on how to motivate an application and then refused based on lack of motivation cause you are left taking shots in the dark?

    Why pray tell do we even need to motivate?
    Self Defense Application is self explanatory, business purposes the same, sport shooter, sure, there is the association I belong to, it will be used in sport, done. Same for hunting.

    Yes, it's quite ridiculous and an incredibly generic reply. I'll bet they have that permanently on "copy and paste".

    CFR are the next best thing to illiterate.

    Their lack of reading and comprehension skills is legendary.

    So... I have to renew my dealers licence every year.

    Last year my dealers licence gets lost between Pretoria and my local station. It cannot be reprinted because of 'reasons'.

    It is a practice of CFR that they require your current dealers licence to be attached to your annual renewal application. Also, since dealers licences NEVER follow a calendar year (sometimes you get less than 12 months, sometimes more), without a current dealers licence to hand you never know when to reapply.

    So... this year I reapply for my dealers licence without a current licence to hand (or attached to the application). But I do write a nice little informative Affidavit explaining the situation.

    First my local station captures my renewal app as a new licence app and so the system reflects that my current licence has lapsed! This requires more than a month of shouting and swearing to fix... Then my renewal app goes over 90 days, then over 120 days, then...

    Meantime some of the wholesalers we buy from, not understanding the FCA and particularly S24(4), are harassing us and even suspending our accounts with them because they wrongly imagine that there is something funny going on... More shouting and swearing...

    Eventually, last week Friday, my DFO tells me what happened... She phones CFR and they tell her that my renewal is being held back because I didn't attach a copy of my current dealers licence! My DFO loses her shit with CFR! SHE tells them: "Don't you bother to READ?"

    Ons word maar almal onder die selfde kam geskuur.

    My licence for Ruger 10/22 was approved today!!!
    After 130 working days or five days short of six months, many e-mails and phone calls later.
    Now the wait for the card
