Civilian firearm owners are required by law to register their firearms with the Namibian Police Force.
However, the total number of licenced firearms cannot be accurately determined, as an electronic database was created only in 1998, and was not reconciled with the manual database. This problem has largely been resolved through the Arms and Ammunition Act of 1996, which required all legal firearm owners to re-register their firearms with the Namibian Police.
