The trick is to keep the motivation as concise as possible whilst including all the vital details. It is helpful to include a list of all the accredited organisations you belong to – along with your membership details. It is important to focus and concentrate on explaining the specific reasons why you need the firearm you are applying for, and its intended use, and not to blur your reasons with unnecessary additional information. Always supply applicable supporting documentation for things you claim in the motivation; . crime stats, sport participation results etc.
