Gas weapons, along with rubber, barrelless and hunting weapons, are weapons of self-defense and are subject to compulsory licensing, i.e. obtaining an appropriate permit for its acquisition, storage and wearing. Registration of gas weapons takes place in the Department of Licensing and Permitting Work (OLRR) at the Internal Affairs Directorate at the place of registration. But before submitting the relevant documents for registration, you need to collect them, and this is not an easy and financially costly business.
What is a gas weapon license
It is a card with a photograph of the holder of one or another weapon. The purchased gas (or other) weapon fits into this card from the back side. Attention! One permit can contain up to 5 units of one or another self-defense weapon! These can be gas pistols and revolvers, as well as traumatic ("Wasp", "Makarych", etc.) and hunting weapons.

Required documents. Firstly, this is a certificate from a neuropsychiatric dispensary. Its average cost is about 500 rubles. It is not uncommon for doctors to force men to undergo a CT scan of the brain in order to find out the presence or absence of head injuries. The cost of such a procedure is from 1000 rubles.
Secondly, you need to get a separate certificate from the narcological dispensary. Its cost is about 500 rubles.
Thirdly, you must obtain a medical certificate form 0-46. It is curious that its cost is still 1000 rubles, but doctors want to oblige to receive such a certificate at the clinic at the place of registration.
