Display the transfer of weapons or ammunition only to authorised persons in Germany


If you leave your weapon and/or ammunition to another person, you must report this to the competent firearms authority within two weeks. The competent firearms authority will then delete the entry for the weapon and/or ammunition from your firearms possession card (WBK) and, if applicable, from your European firearms pass.

You don't have to display it if you

  • leave substantial parts of the weapon for embellishment or similar work to be carried out and then receive them back after completion of the work,
  • provide weapons and/or ammunition as part of a training and employment relationship,
  • Temporarily leave weapons and/or ammunition for shooting at a shooting range.
