Can I get a Polish Firearms License for firearms collectors by joining DESERT STORM European Firearms Association?
In theory, yes, but the process for a foreigner may be difficult as everyone has to fulfill the same requirements as polish citizens such as:
- be at least 21 years old
- have a permanent residential address in Poland
- have a clean criminal record
- have a legal right to stay in Poland (residential status or visa)
- complete a medical examination – general and psychological (knowledge of the polish language is needed to do your psychological assessment)
- pass the theoretical Police exam about polish firearms and the use of force law (exam is in polish and you need to give 10 good answers for 10 multichoice questions)
- pass the practical Police exam on the shooting range (you need to speak polish to do that)
- have a legal reason to apply for a firearms license – we help with that as being a member of our association makes you eligible to apply for a firearms license for collectors. We’ll issue you a written confirmation if necessary)
If you believe you can handle the process please contact us and we are happy to help to get you your firearms license in Poland.
