Hi Naga,

Not sure if you got the answer to your question on what to fill up under Section 12 for "In which form License is required", but thought I'd help.

When I applied for an Arms Lic, I was asked to fill in my choice of Pistol or Revolver, and I filled in Pistol.

HTH!

Regards,
Ragu

It should be in Book form

Hello Sir,
My name is Vikas from Una, Himachal Preadesh. I am state president for Karate and i am in this field since last 26 years. A well known personality in Hamirpur had called me for appointment as a bodyguard on salary of Rs.50,000. But the requirement was that i should have revolver with me. Please guide me sir, Is this reason valid to apply for revolver? Please all tell me what are the other circumstances in which i can apply a revolver and what is the procedure to do so.



This is very important for me and very urgent. Its the question of my job. Please reply as soon as possible.

Arms license is usually issued for self protection or sport. You are not required to give any special or extraordinary reason. The licensing authority for issuing license is usually the local district magistrate. You may personally go to the office of district magistrate and complete the required formalities. You will have to fill the application form, give photocopies of required documents like proof of id and residence etc.

You need to show a "reason" for wanting to own a firearm. The acceptable reasons are self-protection, sports & crop protection. If you are applying under sports, at the minimum you will need to show membership of an association and participation in some sporting events. If it is self-protection, you will need to convince the authorities of your need for the same. Just thinking aloud here, an idea could be to collate the violent crime statistics for your state and attach it along with your application, stating your current profession and why you feel that you too could be the target of any random act of violence.
