Holy Hand Grenade is an Internet-based gunshop in Bellville (Cape Town) specialising in inexpensive firearm storage.


On 2018-06-07, the Constitutional Court delivered a judgement which states that the relicencing provisions of the Firearm Control Act of 2000 are not unconstitutional

This means that you need to apply to renew your licence more than 90 days before the expiry date of that licence.

If you do not apply before the 90-day deadline, you have 90 days to dispose of the firearm.

On the date your firearm licence expires, you are in illegal possession of the firearm, and at this stage that means you need to hand the firearm in to the police for destruction. This is of course unacceptable, and we (GOSA) and others are working on options.

However, in the 90-day period before your licence expires, we can book your firearm into our books, and then issue you with a SAPS 271 form for you to re-apply for a licence for the firearm. Contact us for details about our cheap gun storage options.


Let's face it, paperwork is a pain. That's why we charge for that separately. This keeps the storage cost down to the bare minimum. The less you bug us, the cheaper it is to store your guns.

We also have an online shop.
