This topic is for all MOI license discussions.

Please feel free to discuss everything you need to about the MOI issued arms licenses.

Please ONLY discuss MOI licenses and not Provincial or Home Sec. Quota systems as there should be another thread for that.

As of today the NPB are still closed. Cost is, however, 13000 per license through an agent when they open. They are issued for 5 years, after which you have to renew your license.

Card licenses are not being issued at this time.

PB are open and the word is that the government is going to stop issuing PBs indefinitely, except in special circumstances.

Documents required for a license:
2 Pictures
CNIC Copy
Filled out form

To verify a license you can do either of the following:
Call MOI and follow procedures as directed, or
Go to you local police station and speak to SHO. He can send in a request to MOI for varification, upon reply he will stamp the license book.

How to get 144 permit:
Go to your local DCO office file an application requesting a permit for 144. With the application you have to attach copies of the licenses that you wish to carry. The permit will be license specific. Please note that this is not easy process and you have to convince DCO/DC that you have a pressing need to carry in 144.

The License threads have grown so much that it's next to impossible to merge the relevant info. Please only ask MOI (All Pakistan) license questions in this thread.

I have renamed both threads to Provincial and All Pakistan for easy of use in the future.

You can keep the weapon in car while travelling with your MOI license.

MOI NPB licenses are still closed.

FP what do you mean, can you only keep it in the car?

Parabellum
25-03-2009, 11:10 PM
What FP is saying is that you cannot carry the weapon on your person, as in a belt holster or a shoulder rig etc. it can be in your car as your car is i believe the term is "movable property" Please correct me if i am wrong.

25-03-2009, 11:25 PM
Another thread is running, initiated by conceal carry, with same questions. Some are saying permit is needed to carry your gun, some are saying permit is only needed under section 144. Confusing. Somebody come forth and clear this plz. In my opinion a licence is issued for sports/protection. How can you stay protected when your gun is in the car? I think you can keep your gun with you on a MOI licence, wherever you go, as long as it is kept concealed. This however would and should exclude banks, high security offices, etc. The licence was issued to you, not to your car! And you need more protection outside your car, than inside. This would mean take your gun out of your closet and put it in the car, and same way back! Why not then leave it in the closet, few would dare to attack you inside your premises while walking towards your car!

Osam
25-03-2009, 11:55 PM
It is really simple, you need a special permit to carry when 144 is imposed and when it isnt in effect you dont need one.

Ka_Khan
26-03-2009, 12:38 AM
AK 47 is right....license is the only thing you need to carry your weapon....inside or outside your car...exhibition is not allowed.Permit only needed when 144 is imposed.
If you could not carry your weapon even with the license then whats it for?

@ Connector,

Yes that i know tht is why i inquired as to who was charging 13K. Well i know DAAD and am a customer of his, though he charge a lil premium as compared to others but i do not mind giving that for a weapon. But for the license i would like to have it on the lower side.

@ FP,

Would appreciate if you could respond to the last two queries. Also i am interested in having it at the said fees.

Thank you both for the response.

To update....As I mentioned I had applied for a NPB license in Islamabad through the Grand Crook aka Haji Amin and Co. I gave him 13k on 26 Dec 2008 for the same. Yesterday I visted him, and he told me that the DN had been issued and money paid in NBP against the DN on 21 March 2009. Further he told me that I should expect the license by the 07 April. Once the license is received, I understand (after the weapon purchase) that it had to be registered with the DC office - one can decide to do on your own or Haji Amin can do this at a cost of Rs 500.

I will update the members once I actually get the license book in my hand.

Abbas
02-04-2009, 02:57 PM
I think which ever dealer we recommend for Karachi should not be a one time bulk thing. The understanding should be that if the dealer gives a good price to Karachi members then we'll keep on sending people his way. It would be difficult for you guys to arrange a bulk buy of licenses.

Most Recent Updates regarding MOI Lice:

1- For all those who deposited fee ( were issues demand darft earlier) are directed to deposit documents after registering with a Dealer and DCO till 8-April-09.
2- For all such persons, Duration for issuance of Green copies is 3-Months.
3- NPB are not opened (will take 2-weeks to be opened).
4- PB are open.
5- Issuance of new NPB will not open till investigations are complete by FIA on Arms Section MOI.
6- Rehman Malik, currently leading MOI is showing no interest towards Arms Section, hence performance of Arms Section is too slow.
7- Be aware of any dealer who challanges you to make your NPB in even month. Any change, latest updates will be shared as my own 3-copies of NPB are pending @ MOI.
8- In any case, demand origional Papers from your dealer (Demand Draft,Bank Reciept,DCO Letter) and have copies of each. You may need them in future. As soon any one recieves demand draft, verify it from MOI before depositing Bank fee.

Abbas, I think that its useless to discuss on the NBP licenses as someone has to go to secretariat and confirm the status. I have a friend in Min. of Commerce and he checked with the MOI personally. They told him that it would take another 1 to 2 weeks. PB are open till now and they are taking the application but only with the resommendations from Parliamentarians are being entertained on urgent basis.
As regards license in Sindh, the top shops in KHI i.e. tayabally and AHT told me 18K and 20K for handgun and 15k for Shotgun. I have a prior experience with one of them that my license took something around 2 months and that was also very tiresome as had to call them again and again.

2. if u have federal license then it is necessry to mention otherwise not.(its formality)
3. Field name " Weapon number" has to be fillied by the Gun Dealer. (With Dealer`s Stamp ) ..

Na brother dont fill this field while filling the form. let me tell u the complete procedure.
1. fill the form (without filling the "weapon number" field).
2. submit the application.
3. u ll get demand note of rs 5000 from Ministry.
4. take that demand note to arms dealer ( he ll fill the weapon number field ) take this form to DCO office, then national bank(deposit 5000rs ). (with in six months of receiving of demand note) .
5. Resubmit that demand note to ministry. (with in six months of receiving of demand note)
6. they ll give u a slip (token number) mentioning date on which u can get u copy of license.
7. go on mentioned date to MOI for the collection of u r copy of license.
8. take that copy to DCO office again for record enterence (with in one month of receiving of license) .
9. then take that copy to national bank again for record enterence. (with in one month of receiving of license) .

thats great info. one point still confuses me. do i have to(necessary) buy the weapon from the dealer where i get the demand note stamped? or is it just for the record?
and this seems a long procedure. i am a federal employee (i heard that exemption is not in place now) so i dont think i will need to pay ??

Abbas
09-04-2009, 01:02 PM
+1 to Bluff. I think the demand note for Rs. 5000 is for provincal and Rs. 7500 for Interior and while the offical procedure is pretty much how Bluff has described it, it usually ends up by giving an Id copy, two picutres and a filled out application form to the dealer along with around 15 k and picking up your license from him in a month (provided licenses are open).

As far as the weapon number, I've never entered any weapon number on any application. All licenses come blank and a six month grace period is given to purchase and enter a firearm on it. The "Weapon number" column is for special cases where a weapon is being given as a gift and requires a license to make it legal. Btw you can sell that weapon the very same day and get another one registered on that same license. Most of us have kept at least 4/5 different weapons on the same license as we buy something use it, get tired of it and change it for something else.

Bluff

another option is u can get a weapon number from dealer and emborce it on weapon more over u can get the fee exemption but the procedure is
1. show them the proof that you are federal govt employee( employment number, personal number on ur pay slip form AGPR )
2. the Arms license apllication form generated through u dept.

My licence was made by Abbas Bhai his shop is opposite Haris and next to TNT arms. He charged me Rs.15000.. Time spent was around.. 8 weeks. And I received a call from the MOI to conform my particulars..

luckily my licence was made on the 15th of dec. Just made it!


How ever yesterday when I was doin the rounds of the arms market.. I found out that PB licenses are open.

But the dealers are charging a whopping 85,000

Would those licenses be hte real macoy. or would any unsuspecting buyer be lookin at at least 10 years in the slammer?

Abbas
18-04-2009, 07:17 PM
I got one license made which allows two weapons but there is not much utility. I mean if I can carry two guns and ammo with me I will have the space for another license. :)

Btw two npb's also causes some confusion sometimes because on the license 100 bullets a year are usually stamped. If you buy for one weapon the dealer will stamp it. The bullets for the other weapon becomes a grey area as you've already bought the 100 bullets allowed. Technically and legally it's 100 per weapon but I've met a dealer or two who were ignorant and do create issues.

Best to have one weapon per license.

Look for dealer details in the dealer section. He will cooperate with you InshAllah. Tell them you are from PakGuns.

A word of advise though, currently licenses are closed and anyone who will get them made for you right now will do so backdated. What that means for you is that you will have less time to purchase a weapon. Normally you get 6 months, this way you will get 1 month perhaps.

Hi There,

i applied for 9mm license from Islamabad and the guy charged me 10,000, i have recieved the letter also that payment has been deposited i dont know what that letter is called. so can anybody tell me except for 9mm for whcich NPB i can also also apply. further for the freinds who are in need of more than 100 bullets i recomend that when they make license they should go for card license not the copy as when you buy the bullets the dealer stamp on license but in card license there is no place to stamp so you can buy as much as you can.

AK47
19-04-2009, 12:12 AM
They don't stamp your copy. They normally only check your licence. First time entry of gun and ammo is stamped, cards will have to be renewed after 5 years, whereas copies can continue on with only a renewal stamp. Hence, copies are more practical, and there is even less chance of misplacing them.

Khalidsh
19-04-2009, 12:39 AM
For Bhatti Sahib,
The procudure is to get the license initiated through your department in which you will require an official letter from your department stating your deails as well as a request to allow you a license withour fee.

A friend of mine (may Allah rest his soul in peace) also got his license converted to he government one. All he did and what he told me was that he got a license made as a private party and once he gotit he applied for the government exemption fee. As he is not alive I cannot give you more information but would suggest to contact your local DCO and he will help you a lot (Being a Govt. employee himself)

I dont think anyone would recommend an agent. Its all about your interaction with the shop. You may check DAAD on Zamzama, as its comparatively new shop and the guy just want to sell his arms. So he will be helpfull. It may take from 2 weeks to a month.
The license with the fee and the speed money should not be more than 15k all in.

I noticed the avoidance to name the dealer. However, anyone sharing their good (and bad for that matter) experience with a dealer does not make them liable. After all, isn't what these forums are all about. Together we can make the good businesses flourish and pressure not-so-good ones to mend their ways.
Thanks for your tip, I'll check Daad out.

CougarMan
19-04-2009, 10:52 AM
Actually, if you buy from a good dealer, they almost always have their own agent who will take care of the license issues (prices vary). Especially in Karachi, they will not let you walk out of the shop with a weapon unless it is licensed.

Don't know what the situation is in Rawalpindi, but here you can get a Sindh license pretty quickly and it will cost between Rs. 10-15,000/- though a shop agent.

I would not go to an independent agent.

DAAD is a new shop geographically, but his brother has a shop in Lucky Star. So presumably they have their own agent who takes care of their licensing. I think that they have identified a market niche and placed them self accordingly...and are charging the highest prices possible for their goods. No fake stuff, but high prices if you want their goods without the hassle of going to saddar. Which is marketing after all!!!

@Bhatti Be very careful as on provincial licenses all they do is put fake stamps on them and give them back to you. When you go to get them renewed next time you are in for a nasty surprise. I knew someone who had this done and the post office kept his license next time he went to get it renewed. That made the weapon illegal also.

I would advise you to go though proper channels, it might cost you more but it will be genuine. Firearms are not something that you want to take a risk on. If at some later point the same weapon is used in an act of self defense the police will ask for your license and if found fake renewed will cause a world of problems for you.

According to my knowledge the license record has to me moved from one post office to another if you have to get it renewed. But I also know a person who gets licenses renewed for my some of my collegues without the need of any specific post office. He gets it done from the Sindh Secretariat Post Office. Although it sounds creepy to me as I always prefer to get it done myself with the post office near my home.

lets pray it gets done soon..........

Yeah they are updating their database.. when I applied for mine...

I got a call from the ministry verifying my antecedents

Even though it took around 8 weeks I was lucky enough to get it on the 16th of dec.

Sharp Sooter is right. MOI is on priority processing the pending requests and some from Ministers, MNAs and Senators. This is the thing that my mole in the Ministry told me today.

First there were a confusion of issuing card of book. Then finally they started issuing books. Then they found that some books are actually stolen. The they were out of books. Now they have new books but too many applications. So I guess another 1 to 2 months...... I pray I am wrong

I don't think the backlog has been cleared yet as I have a couple of NPB's in the pipeline which I'd applied for in Dec....my dealer had gotten the demand note by end-Dec but since then no news regarding the books.

I'm assuming that these would constitute the back-log.....so if I haven't received the books yet, I'm assuming the back-log hasn't been completely cleared either......

my person in the MOI still says that there is no expectation of the window getting opened in the 1st week of May. the back log is being processed very slowly.

that's good news.. now please tell me what are my odds of getting a license by applying directly?? ie not through a dealer? how long it may take? and i read that you need your tax. info(??) or employment proof for application(which is not needed when going through a dealer i think..), what about it when applying directly??
