Interest in pneumatic weapons in our country in thethe present time is extremely high. And this circumstance has a completely logical explanation. First, a person acquires pneumatics in self-defense. In addition, weapons have a psychological impact. Agree that your offender will not feel anything but fear when he sees in your hands an elegant gas cylinder gun that visually practically does not differ from PM. Secondly, this is a great way to practice shooting. Of course, as a target, you need to use bottles or jars of glass.
What is different about pneumatics from other weapons? First of all, the fact that the projectile starts from it under the action of gas pressure.
So, there is a large category of people,who are afraid for their own safety. At the same time, few people know whether a permit is needed for pneumatic weapons. It is necessary to emphasize that in each country this issue is solved in different ways. And ours is no exception. So, do we need a permit for traumatism?
How to solve the problem in our country
Once again, we emphasize that Russia has its own rules governing the handling of pneumatics.
Young people who are interested in whether they needpermission for pneumatic weapons, should know that in our country it is customary to single out three categories of "rifles, rifles and pistols". The first is composed of samples with a muzzle energy of not more than 3 Joules, the second group is models with muzzle energy from 3 to 7.5 Joules, while the third category is represented by variants with muzzle energy from 7.5 to 25 Joules.
As for the first two points, there are no barriers to the acquisition of guns or pistols.
Do I need a permit for an air gun that belongs to the third group? Of course, yes. The legislator obliges to obtain a license for him.
Features of the procedure for obtaining a license
So, the answer to the question of whether a permit for pneumatic weapons is needed is obtained. At the same time, many are interested in the very nature of obtaining a license. Let us consider it in more detail.
Who has the right to purchase pneumatics
At once it is necessary to emphasize, that the question on,whether it is necessary to permit a pneumatic weapon in Russia, is relevant only to those who have reached adulthood. Persons under 18 years of age are not allowed to issue pistols, except, of course, toy. However, these are not all requirements for the buyer of pneumatics. A citizen who intends to purchase it must obtain a medical certificate stating that he is mentally healthy.
Moreover, in order to obtain permission fortravmatiku, it is necessary to be a member of the hunting society, which is also confirmed by the document. Also you will need to purchase a special safe or metal cabinet to store rifles and rifles. Today their range is quite diverse.
List of documents
To obtain a license to buy "air" youit is necessary to collect a certain package of documents and submit them to the licensing and licensing department (hereinafter - LRO). These include: a medical certificate, a copy of the passport, two photographs (3x4), as well as a document confirming payment of the state fee. In addition, you must write a statement that you want to get a license. It will be considered within ten days. After this, you will receive a response in writing, from which you will find out whether your question is positively solved or not. In the first case, you will be required to undergo qualification testing for knowledge of the regulatory framework governing the relations in the use, possession and storage of weapons. A month after the successfully passed tests you will become the owner of an official document that gives you the right to purchase pneumatics. However, remember that due to various circumstances, the period for obtaining a license can be extended.
Features of the procedure for buying weapons
The license for pneumatics is valid for six months. If in this period of time the gun or rifle has not been acquired, the license must be handed over or prolonged.
After the acquisition of arms, the sellergives you in the hands of one license counterfoil, which must be submitted within 14 days in the LRO. Further, the department employees will get a card on the pneumatic weapon and issue a permit for the pistol or rifle that you just bought. Registration of weapons takes an average of one and a half weeks. After this procedure, the length of the possession of the weapon will begin.
To renew the license, you will need the same documents as when you first applied. At the same time, the state duty will cost you several times cheaper.
Fans of pneumatics should also remember,that even after purchasing a sports rifle, they will not be able to shoot out of it in a settlement or forest. They can do this only in specially designated places: a dash or at a shooting range.
