According to the order of the Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia, those persons who have the right to keep registered firearms, on the basis of a temporary certificate, were granted the right to transfer the weapon to the shooting range or shooting area.

“ Interested persons will be able to obtain a temporary certificate at the service agency of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, on the basis of which they will have the right to carry the weapon to the shooting range or shooting area and return it to the place of storage, no more than once a week. Until now, there was no possibility to transfer weapons to the shooting range or the shooting area under the current legislation, which resulted in the dissatisfaction of the gun owners”, the Ministry of Internal Affairs said in a statement.

According to the ministry, under a temporary license for weapons, it will be possible to transfer no more than five weapons and no more than 50 rounds of ammunition for weapons. During transportation, it is necessary to have a temporary certificate for the transportation of weapons and a certificate of its registration.

To obtain a temporary weapon license, the owner must apply to the Service Agency with a written application. In order to transfer weapons to a shooting range or a shooting area, the fee for a temporary weapon license is 30 GEL per one weapon, 50 GEL for two weapons at the same time, 100 GEL for more than two weapons at the same time.

The service agency will issue a temporary gun certificate within 3 working days, indicating the times of moving the gun to the shooting range or shooting area and returning it to the place of storage. The owner of the weapon is obliged to return the weapon and unused cartridges to the place of storage no later than the time specified in the certificate.

Carrying weapons without a temporary license or violating other transportation rules will result in criminal liability.

“In addition, the Service Agency is actively working on the development of an electronic program, which will be launched in the near future, and it will be possible to issue a temporary weapon certificate electronically, as well as effective monitoring of the transfer of weapons.

 It is worth noting that the resolution of the Government of Georgia has already come into forcewhich greatly simplified the conditions and procedure for obtaining the appropriate permit for the operation of open ranges, shooting ranges and shooting-hunting stands were significantly simplified. According to the adopted changes, more flexible conditions and procedures for obtaining a permit, adapted to the interests of the population, were established. The changes provide for all the mechanisms necessary to introduce modern standards of securing safety measures”, according to the message of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
