Just an update:
I ordered my 308 Rem VSF last year Sep 07. It arrived in South Africa Jan 08. It is still sitting at the gun dealer waiting for my lic to be approved. So nearly a year later...
My competency card I applied for last Apr 07 and I finally recieved it in May 08. One year later...
My lic for the Rem I applied for on 11 March 08. The application has finally reached Pretoria Central Firearms on 13 May 2008. Took 3 months to travel 1000km.
Now I sit and f$%^&8 wait....
Lucky bastards @#$%$#*

Understand your frustration 8shots but it is tempered a little bit by your beautiful hunting terrain and game animals - some would call you a lucky SOB!

Wow..I remember when I lived there seeing folks openly carrying handguns around Pietermaritzburg..How times have changed ( and  reinforces why we here need to be diligent )

It took me just over six months to get my gun lic in the USA (police,fbi,ice)and then the first gun i go to buy i was refused!!!
It got better tho on the second try, but sometimes i still get refused or put on a wait i can't figure it out, and some things are worth the wait.

I'm classic shag nasty type.

WOW!  That sucks, Wouter!  I feel for ya, brother!  I forget how fortunate I am to live in a firearms friendly state like Texas.  I hope this bureaucratic lunacy gets resolved soon for you.
This is a cautionary tale of what we all might expect later in the US if the anti-gunners ever get their way.

Yea, what a load of crap. I'm in the same situation as Ted. Just walk in, pick out something, pay for it and head home.

Ya "8" I feel for you,  though I would think that it makes for a one hell of a happy day when you recieve the rifle.  That said, we americans are very fortunate and I hope we keep it that way.

Well lets give a big thanks to all of those sorry ass Americans, American companies and everybody else in the world that supported that slimy ass criminal Nelson Mandela and what he and his cronies have done to South Africa.  I feel for you Wouter.  I went Friday to our local gun shop and 10 minutes later I walked out with my brand new Kel Tec PF9.  Here in NC if you have a ccp or cwp, you do not even have to apply for a pistol permit to buy one and that is the way it should be.  I wish I could just direct ship you a rifle.

Hey thanks Dolphin! make it a Rem700 VSF LH!!
I see in Zimbabwe they are killing one another off! I am sure the MDC are feeling sorry for their asses and they now wish they had fought on the side of the whites! Now it is black against blacks! Hope they keep it up for a while!
Anyway, I managed to find someone who likes me and I heard today that my file is finaly being processed!
