1. No there is none.

2. No, as I said previously, you are not allowed to get involved in a shootout if your life is not in direct danger. Regardless of the circumstances though, you should never engage if police is on scene.

In the PF License Regulations page, it's stated that a PF holder:
  • Must not remove the firearm from its storage unless required to do so.

    but also
  • May Open Carry their handgun, in compliance with the Open Carry Assurance and Regulation Act.
Does the second point override the first point?

"Firearms being transported, where the owner only possesses a PF License and is not Open Carrying in compliance with the Open Carry Assurance and Regulation Act, must be stored in a locked container. The term "locked container" means a secure container which is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, key lock, combination lock, or similar locking device. This includes the trunk of a motor vehicle, but does not include the utility or glove compartment."

Certain firearms that are authorized for purchase with a PF license are not permitted for open carry usage. This is defined under 2B of the Open Carry Assurance and Regulation act, which states "[a]n individual who has fulfilled the necessary requirements for open carry, which are outlined in section 2B of this act, may only openly carry handguns in designated open carry zones."

Please also bear in mind that open carry is not authorized in the City of Los Santos. Please be sure to read 3A of the above stated act which defines the zones where open carry is permitted. When proceeding through areas that are not zones authorized for open carry, your firearm should be stored inside of a locked container. As well as this, any firearm that is lawful for purchase under the PF license guidelines but is being transported through a zone that is not authorized for open carry shall also be stored inside a locked container.

There are two main options for disposing/handing in a weapon that is broken or unusable. The first option is to store the handgun, unloaded, in a locked container and return it to the gun store you purchased it from along with the receipt of your purchase. The second option would be to store it in a locked container, unloaded, preferably in the trunk of your personal vehicle. You should then park yourself and your vehicle near a police or sheriff's station and call the non-emergency line to report that you wish to surrender a firearm. A police officer or deputy sheriff will then meet with you to collect the firearm and turn it in where it will be properly disposed of.

(( You should /dropgun [weapon ID] to remove the weapon from your inventory. This deletes the firearm and its ammunition completely. ))

(( Since the Licensing department has actually been removed, can we technically just hunt w/o licenses? I mean, there is literally no way of getting them anymore. ))

(( 2.4 under the PF License Usage Regulations states that you "can hunt in designated hunting zones around San Andreas and may open carry long guns if [you] are participating in an active hunt" whilst having a valid PF license. However, you'd need to get in contact with the government faction OOC about hunting permits and what alternatives you should follow instead as we do not handle that. ))

No. Being under the influence is. Please read Section II of the PF License Regulations document.

A licensed guard needs a GC.
As a bouncer, meaning unarmed guard, would I be allowed to use a concealed weapon while working, as personal (not work related) protection?

Found under our regulations (specifically the CCW License Regulations), 2.3 CCW License Usage Regulations: "[you must] not carry a concealed firearm when conducting duties as a security guard or bodyguard in any capacity, unless [you] are an active, serving peace officer with an LEO CCW." Bouncer work is considered a security guard role, and therefore you may not. Please read up on our documents available in the Personal Protection Permit Section area as you'll find that a lot of the questions you have asked here are already answered in the documents under this section.

You should be more specific. If your CCW was revoked, then there is no way you can re-obtain it.
