How do I obtain a Pistol Licence? (refer to http://www.police.nsw.gov.au/services/firearms )  

To obtain a pistol licence you need to be a member of a pistol club and have what is called a genuine reason, which is for sport & target shooting.

 

When you join the club as a Full Member you then apply for a Probationary pistol licence.

For the first six months while on probation you are not permitted to possess or use a pistol except when at the club ranges and under direct supervision.

After six months and when you have completed your safety & training courses, the police are notified and you can then apply for a 'permit to acquire’ to obtain your first pistol. You will be restricted in the type and number of pistols you can own.

 

Before your probationary licence expires you can apply for a category H pistol licence. When granted you can than apply to purchase other types of pistols.

 

To obtain a pistol you must have an approved safe installed.

Information on storage of pistols and their transportation is covered in your training.
