Difficult to speculate or give an opinion. There is no provision under Arms Act 1959, Arms Rules 1962 that requires some "recommendation" from MP or anybody. Getting an arms license is not some kind of baksheesh being given to the citizen by Government but it is citizen's right. A recent judgment by High Court supporting the fact that arms are part of Article 21 of Constitution of India can be read at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15364#p147708 You may also read this viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16708#p159679Will getting a recommendation letter from MP (to District Collector) will increase prospects of getting arms license?
Ref: http://www.abhijeetsingh.com/arms/india ... r_3_4.html(3) The licensing authority shall grant---
(a) a licence under section 3 where the licence is required---
(i) by a citizen of India in respect of a smooth bore gun having a barrel of not less than twenty inches in length to be used for protection or sport or in respect of a muzzle loading gun to be used for bona fide crop protection
You do not even need to be an income tax payee to get an arms license because getting an arms license is a citizen's right. Income is a form of property i.e. moveable property. Please read Section 14(2) where it says:As per my IT returns I am a modest businessman.
The licensing authority shall not refuse to grant any licence to any person merely on the ground that such person does not own or possess sufficient property.
To get an arms license you do not need a threat or enemies. It is a citizen's right to get an arms license whether threat or no threat, enemies or no enemies. Please read Section 13(3) of Arms Act 1959 mentioned above again.I cannot show any clear threat to my life as no case was registered in police station. I have enemies.
A gun is not a magic wand, it is just a tool if used properly and wisely as allowed by law may help you.I need a gun as deterrence
What should I say? Guns and timidity probably have no relation with each other. Probably other members can shed some light on this matter.and to overcome timidity.
Welcome to the world of politics. May you become the ideal politician for "we the people of India". "Politics" is made up of two words, "poli" which in Greek means "many" and "tics" are blood sucking insects.I may enter politics after some years.

A simpler way to go about will be to first apply for a NPB shotgun license for self protection since Section 13(3) of Arms Act 1959 clearly makes it mandatory for the licensing authority to issue a license of shotgun for self protection, provided the applicant is not disqualified under Section 14 of Arms Act 1959.
Once you get a shotgun license you may apply for additional firearm like handgun.
