Special Provisions for Shot Gun Certificates
(1) Subject to sub-regulation (2), a shot gun certificate may be granted or, as the case may be, renewed by the Police Officer for such period as he or she may think fit, if he or she is satisfied that the applicant can be permitted to possess a shot gun without danger to the public safety or peace:
Provided that no such certificate shall be granted or renewed if the Police Officer --
(a) is satisfied that the applicant does not have a good reason for possessing or acquiring a shot gun; or
(b) has reason to believe that the applicant is prohibited by these Regulations from possessing a shot gun.
(2) For the purpose of the proviso to sub-regulation (1)(a), an applicant shall, in particular, be regarded as having a good reason if the shot gun is intended to be used for sporting or competition purposes.
