The following information details the regulations and criteria that need to be met in order for you to own your own firearms for target shooting sports through the club. The cost to join as a Full Member for 6 months is $300.00 and 12 months is $450.00.
If you wish to license your own firearms via the club then in addition to your Full Membership you will require an annual membership ($83.00) to the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA).
Range shooting fees for full members are 50% off the non member rate and are all inclusive of gun-use, range time and targets. Upon full payment of fees you will undertake a twenty six (26) week probationary period during which time you are required to complete a minimum of fifteen (15) separate attendance shoots.
If you wish, you can purchase your own firearms from our dealership. Storage for firearms pending license is only $15.00 a month. You are required to obtain a National Police Clearance, available through Australia Post, before being allowed to shoot your own gun.
Once you have served your probationary period and completed your minimum number of shoots you can make an application to license the firearm(s) through the Club. The Club’s management will assess the application on the basis of its merit and upon a successful assessment, complete a Form 1 Support Application which will then be sent to the SSAA (WA) for their approval. A Form 2 Support Letter will be mailed back to you in due course from SSAA.
Documents you require prior to applying for a Firearms License include sufficient proof of identify with a photograph, supporting document stating the reason for wishing to license a firearm (Form 2), a Serviceability Certificate for each firearm you are seeking to license, and a Firearms Awareness Certificate if you are a first time applicant for a Firearm License. You need to go online to www.police.wa.gov.au and follow the prompts that will assist you to complete a Firearm License application. You will also need to provide information from the supporting documents that are required.
All the documentation needs to be submitted to a participating Australia Post outlet and you undergo a twenty eight (28) day “cooling-off period” if you are a first-time license applicant. At the end of this period you need to contact Police Firearms Branch by mail or e-mail to let them know you wish to proceed with the application.
Note: You will need to provide “safe-storage” facilities in order for you to license your firearm. This usually involves purchasing and installing a gun safe that meets WA Police Firearms Branch requirements and providing further information to Police Licensing Services.
Once all these criteria have been satisfied and your application has been approved, you will be issued a Firearms License with your firearm listed. This is presented at the dealer holding your firearm, together with sufficient photo identification, and your firearm will be released to you. You may be required to attend an Australia Post outlet to have your photograph taken for the Firearms Extract.
Once you have your own club supported handgun the range fee for full members is $20.00. Monday and Tuesday night between 5pm and 7pm are our club nights where members with their own club supported guns receive free range time to maintain compliance. SSAA Action Match competitions are free to shoot on Monday nights 5pm-7pm and Field Pistol competitions are free to shoot on Tuesday nights 5pm-7pm.
In order to maintain your firearms license support you need to remain a financial member of a shooting club and affiliated with State and National bodies (SSAA). You also need to satisfy a “minimum activity requirement” of one registered match shoot every eight (8) weeks.
