Hello gentlemen! Great news for all Pakistani Gun enthusiasts! The MOI All-Pakistan licenses are now open as of today. New applicants can now send applications to the MOI for a firearms license.

The NPB consists of the following bores; 12-Gauge, .308, .22LR, and all pistol calibers some of which are, 9mm, .45, .30 Bore (7.62x25mm Tokarev). If you're interested in getting a license, the easiest way is to contact a firearms dealer and let him handle your application. The cost for a MOI-NPB license through a dealer is 15k. With an MOI All-Pakistan license, one can carry a firearm with him anywhere in Pakistan and it doesn't have to be renewed for 5 years. Provincial license on the other hand costs less but it must be renewed every year and you can only carry your firearm on that license within your province of residence. Provincial licenses are also open. The cost through a dealer is around 10k. Here's a famous quote for all the enthusiasts; ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ — Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764 Happy shooting!
