    Small Arms Committee card. If you have a gun that is not made by one of the makers listed in the Approved Arms List, you need to present the gun to the SAC for inspection and approval. Once they determine it's ok you will receive a SAC card.

    Pretty easy process really...

    To expand on the previous answer, you need a SAC card if:

    1. The gun is made by a reproduction company but has not received blanket production approval.
    2. The gun was made by you or someone else as a one off custom piece.
    3. The gun is a smoothbore with original rear sights.
    4. Any previously approved gun which has been dimensionally altered (say for instance you had an approved 61 Musket and wanted to cut down and turn into a carbine).

    This may be done at any national skirmish, or via any of the regional officers who are members of the SAC committee at a regional skirmish. It is transferable if you sell the gun.

    I have 3. I laminated them and tossed them in the bottom of my range box in case anyone ever asks to see one. Which is rather rare, but it can and does on occasion happen.

    Hello:

    Just to share Mr. Holland's suggestion to me:
    If laminating, please do so in a way that allows the entire card to be viewable and do not fold it into a business card size that hides information.

    My solution is to use inexpensive, durable, clear plastic ID card slip cases sold at most office supply stores. These will accept and protect a folded SAC card, yet allow it to be removed for examination. I suppose that a small plastic freezer bag will work, too.

    Respectfully,
    Kevin Tinny
