The laws around Firearms are stricter when compared with a Shotgun certificate. Unlike shotguns where you do not need a good reason for a certificate and you can essentially purchase as many shotguns and cartridges as you can safely store, Every firearm you may wish to obtain is subject to providing good reason and there are limits to the amount of ammunition you can purchase and it must be stored securely.
How to get a license
If you are looking to obtain a license, you may wish to check different government sites. There are also many sites that offer a selection of the best scopes for 22lr, various hunting guides, and in-depth information about gun licenses.
You will need to state what type of gun and ammunition you want to use on your application. This needs to be very specific. You will need to provide more than a generic group such as a .22 rifle with ammunition. Furthermore, you should state where you are going to keep your guns and ammunition. It is a part of the possession criteria, which requires you to store the firearm appropriately and safely. You may have to do an interview in order to process your application. You should be able to answer questions about your past, remember, they may already know the answers to the questions, and they would not be interviewing you in the first place if they were going to refuse you, so it is best, to be honest. Your guns must be kept in the safe at all times when they are in your house, and only you, the license holder, may have keys to that safe. You must keep the keys with you at all times, you have a duty of care and to allow anyone else access, who does not possess a license, you would be failing in your duty and give a possible reason for your license to be revoked.
