Target shooting or recreational hunting is a sport that can be enjoyed as a group or an individual. You will need to apply for a firearms licence. To obtain this you will need to complete a fire-safety awareness course and a pass the R-Licence course.

In New South Wales, you are required to have bona fide grounds for possessing and using a firearm such as sports and target shooting or recreational hunting and pest control.
Before you can apply for a gun licence, you are required to attend a safety awareness course. We are authorised to conduct safety training on behalf of the NSW Firearms Registry. It consists of theory and practical handling but does not include discharging your firearm.
You must bring identification such as a current NSW driver licence or an original birth certificate. You will be asked you to fill in a form to confirm your eligibility prior to the course. On completion of the course, you will get a Statement of Attainment which is only valid for 12 months. It is your responsibility to submit your firearm licence application, along with supporting paperwork via post to:
NSW Firearms Registry
Locked Bag 1
Murwillumbah, NSW 2484.
We regularly conduct safety awareness courses. To find out when the next course takes place, contact us today.
