Links for notifications, laws etc. are helpful, but isn't it sometimes we make things complicated for ourselves?
for instance this chap applied for NPB 3006 RIFLE and was refused unless he could prove that 3006 was a NPB and was asked for PB?NPB list
Instead of mentioning a particular bore "30-06" in license application, is it not simpler to mention NP bore rifle instead? This will keep the morons at licensing authority satisfied, as well as license holder will have wider options at time of purchase of firearm.
The problem is the bloody sods this side insist on the actual bore you want a license for... just 'NPB' will more often than not, provoke a rejection.
Wouldn't that requirement be not in tune with the Arms Rules?
Hello CC saheb,
The best option as per my personal experience is mentioning "Non-Prohibited Bore Sporting Rifle".... the super smart authorities easily understand the term "Sporting" combined with a reason of "Target Practice etc." and it becomes easier. I have tried this in lucknow when filling up application form for my uncle. Now he holds 1 DBBl, 1 .315 bore rifle and 1 IOF Revolver.
