Oscar Pistorius was in the process of buying six guns at the time he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, more than usually allowed under South African law, his murder trial heard Monday.
The order for three shotguns, two revolvers, and a rifle had already been invoiced to the athlete when he shot Steenkamp on February 14 last year, testified gun licenser Sean Rens.
"The transaction was cancelled a month post-incident," he said at the start of the third week of trial.
South African law allows non-collectors to possess only four firearms.
