    Default License Renewals

    Hi Guys

    A member from our shooting club sent me a message this morning saying that he went in to hand a renewal application in CPT and the DFO stated that CFR are refusing any renewals if you have more than 3 firearms.

    My first comment is that I have always known renewals to be completed at Provincial level and not at CFR.

    I have seen a lot of blanket refusals of recent but majority being on semis and some new applications. I think this is just another case of the DFO making things up. Well I hope so.

    Anyone else heard this ?

    Have a good weekend

    Regards

    Wesley

    First ive heard of it. I recently renewed my 308. Only expires December. Or would have.
    But I gave in renewal April or May. Thought rather early and loose a month then wait for 90 days and miss it.

    And it was renewed at Provincial not CFR.
    Was in about 3 week. Just card took while.

    I have 13 licensed currently all on S16. So not sure about 3 rule.

    Wesley - you talking about Parow Police station?
    I went there on Monday to get a print out of my compentecy certificate so I can start getting my next/new application ready.
    Knowing the issues going on - I innocently ask how smooth the process is going for new applications.
    The answer, save your money because the F.A is changing and they (CFR) are not granting licenses.
    I question a bit more and they (DFO) show me a stack of RENEWALS that have come back all declined, reason is roughly - you don't need 3 rifles for hunting (oke had a self defense and 3 hunting rifles). Even the Parow DFO seemed surprised.

    Will this stop my new application - HELL NO. I'm now more determined and will just be more thorough with my paperwork/motivations.

    To be fair & honest.
    The DFO staff at Parow are very friendly & very efficient.

    Off topic, latest my DFO send out notice "bring the firearm to be renewed" along. Face palm.
