    I believe so. Going forward if not already. If your a member of NHSA. Load your license dates on the site. You do not have to add serial nr. And it will remind you off the renewal coming up.

    If your not a member of NHSA or even if you are. Print an A4 page out listing your firearms and renewal dates and stick it on inside of your safe. So you can see it every time you open to go to range.

    Then you wont have an issue forgetting to renew.

    I thought that that was what some highly places SAPS officers did ?

    So in the end, what was the advice given by everyone and did it not match the advice given by these people "making a killing"?
    Only the people that "make a killing" suggested this from the start and when the majority had time to make use of the amnesty...

    Yep, you receive an SMS and an email reminding you when your license expires, giving you about 2 months early warning befoe the 90 day kicks in.

    My issue is specifically with the corruption that is rife, at least it looks like that is being addressed eventually

    It appears to still not be good enough for some people

    Well with only 147 approvals, doesn't sound like business is good.
