    Will be applying under Section 16 the minute the revolver appears in stock at Overberg Guns and Ammo.

    If I can get to shoot it as well as my Dad did, I will be a very happy man.
    That's fantastic. I shoot a pistol my grandad gave me as a youngster a few times a month and its all the better for the memories it always brings up.

    Somehow, I had the feeling that this would happen.

    That revolver should be easy to handle and shoot accurately. Definitely a hunting handgun.

    You are unlikely to wear it out in your lifetime. Since they are built on the (44 Mag size) N-frame, they are very sturdy and durable.

    1x 30-06 Hunting Rifle
    1x 6.5 x 55mm Hunting Rifle
    1x .22 Hunting Rifle

    Section 16
    1x 12 Bore O/U
    1x .375 Hunting Rifle

    1. From what I understand the Section 13 and Section 15 firearms require no additional qualification and form part of the basic allotment of 4 firearms for any individual. In my case one for self-defense and the balance of three under Occasional Hunter or Sports Shooter. Am I missing anything?

    2. In order to acquire the additional hunting rifles I needed to apply under Section 16 - Dedicated Hunter.

    So far so good.

    My Dad's .357 Revolver which was apparently lost to me in the estate has suddenly become available, so I wish to license this to my name.

    I really don't want to be registering under a different section. Can I get the .357 through under Section 16?
    I have 2 9mm pistols and a 357 revolver.
    1 sec 13 SD
    1 sec 16 Dedicated sport
    1 357 mag - sec 16 Dedicated Hunting.

    If 357 barrel is 4" or longer it can be licensed as a dedicated hunter.

    As per TStones post above a short barreled rollie can be motivated for coup de grace use under dedicated hunting too.
