Ever since the new firearm renewal process was introduced during Covid in 2020, I didn't bother renewing. Taking my gun to SD every year to have the same gun tested at the ballistics labs to get the same results was always a chore, considering I'm on the North Coast. Then they introduced a psych eval requirement too. It's obvious the govt doesn't want average citizens possessing firearms. I locked my gun away and pretty much forgot about it.

During this weekend I received a WhatsApp message from LABBS informing me that if I paid the renewal fee before May 15th, I would be forgiven the last three years I missed. So today I paid the renewal fee. Considering my licence expired in 2020, I paid 9000 pesos and change to get me up-to-date.

Now I need to find a local quack to certify me sane enough to hold a firearm, do a drugs test and get the ballistic test done again. I've been hearing rumours that there is now a centre in Santiago. Can anyone confirm?

Can anybody confirm --- or infirm--- that shotguns are still exempt from renewals, ie the permit is valid forever.

Thanks.

The Quack Psych person can be seen at the same location in Sano Trafficjam where they do they absolutely ridiculous (henceforth semi-annual) ballistics check and so can the pee in a cup test.
