Good day.
I'm a new member on this Forum from South Africa. I've been in conservation for over 40 years. I'm 64 years old and enjoy the outdoors and handgun hunting.
I have a modest Colt collection. Colt Detective Special 38Spl, Colt Diamondback 4" 38Spl, 1980 Colt King Cobra 4" 357Mag, 1978 Colt Python 6" 357Mag and a Colt The Woodsman pistol.
I love my Colts and will learn a lot from this forum.
Regards,
Chris

Welcome from New York. When I was with TNT I spent some time in South Africa. How are the gun control laws there?

Gun Control laws are terrible!! You have to do competency for every type of firearm you want to own. Then apply for a firearm license for every firearm you acquire. This licensing process takes up to six months. You may only have a limited number of firearms. For every firearm you want to get you have to write a lengthy motivation. The license application is about eight pages you have to complete. Your license application may not be granted for any reason. License lapses every five years. Then you have to re-apply.
I cannot buy from John across the street and take it home with me. Wait until the license is approved.
However, there are many firearms in the hands of criminals. Illegal unregistered. Just yesterday a church,very close to where I stay, was robbed at gunpoint by three criminals. A armed ex policemen in the service shot three bad guys after the bad guys started shooting.

I live in Texas and while I really can't get behind gun registration at all, either at first purchase or any other time; I do enjoy the freedoms in Texas regarding the laws on the carrying and ownership of firearms - makes more sense to me. I am so sorry you have to go through so much to get a gun; and understand that the criminal does not - all he has to do is steal one or buy one stolen to use it in his deed. You know only the citizen will comply with the law! Welcome to the forum....Al
