Portable shooting range - apply for permission to operate


If you wish to operate a mobile facility that is used for shooting sports or other shooting exercises with firearms, the testing of firearms or shooting with firearms for amusement (shooting range), or if you wish to significantly change its nature or the way it is used, you require a permit from the competent firearms authority.

No permit is required for shooting ranges where shooting is carried out in closed rooms exclusively for the purpose of testing firearms or ammunition by firearms or ammunition manufacturers, by firearms or ammunition experts or by scientific institutions.

In the case of mobile firing ranges, a single permit prior to their first installation is sufficient.

Before being put into operation for the first time, the shooting range must be inspected by the competent authority with regard to the safety requirements. For this purpose, an expert opinion from a recognised shooting range expert can also be obtained at the expense of the person operating the shooting range.

Requirements

Permission may only be granted if the applicant

  • has the required reliability and
  • personal suitability and
  • provides proof of insurance against liability and accidents in connection with the operation of the shooting range.

There must also be a permit and acceptance for flying constructions.

Which documents are required?

  • Identity card or passport (copy)
  • Statement of the local police station
  • Proof of need, if applicable
  • Proof of the existence of liability insurance and accident insurance for shooting operations subject to showmen's liability
  • Any necessary permits or orders in accordance with building or immission control regulations and the corresponding approval
  • If applicable, safety report from a shooting range expert

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Permission must be applied for prior to commencement of use.
