Mobile shooting range - Apply for permission to operate

If you operate a mobile facility that serves the shooting sport or other shooting exercises with firearms, the testing of firearms or shooting with firearms for amusement (shooting range) or want to change significantly in its nature or in the way in which it is used, you need a permit from the competent weapons authority.

Shooting ranges in closed rooms do not require a permit for shooting exclusively for the purpose of testing firearms or ammunition by weapons or ammunition manufacturers, weapons or ammunition experts or by scientific institutions.

In the case of mobile shooting ranges, a one-time permit before the first installation is sufficient.

The shooting range must be inspected by the competent authority with regard to the safety requirements before it is put into operation for the first time. For this purpose, an expert opinion of a recognized shooting range expert can also be obtained at the expense of the person operating the company.
