        Good thing about our country, most people's weapon of choice is their tongue.

        Do you need a license to try weapons out at the gun club? or can you do it under supervision?

        • +13 votes

          Yes, Under supervision, but I guarantee you will walk out with a license application.

        • +19 votes

          If by "try weapons out" you mean "try target shooting to see if you like the sport", then you can do it under supervision at a range of ranges.

          You'll be asked to fill out a form, eg for NSW and some Sydney ranges: Sydney International Shooting Centre, other metro ranges

          In Melbourne, Springvale Range

          Note: these aren't "pay and spray" venues where you try an Uzi, Barrett 50 cal, then bazooka.

          @Thrift: cheers that's handy. Yeah I've seen the pay & spray OS, but didn't really interest me (I'm not sure wy'd you'd want to shoot a cow with a m16 - yes I'm looking at you Cambodia).

          We had fun with slug guns as kids, and target pistols OS. But I'd love to try out out again to see if it's just a fun as I remember. But wouldn't want to own a weapon (unless you can store it at the club, but that's anothe debate :-)

          I got to shoot coconuts with an M16. I wasn't given an option to shoot a cow where I was, and wouldn't have wanted to even if I was.

          @ILikeBargenz: yeah I know, there were other animals, targets, old cars, etc to chose from. But automatics just don't appeal to me.

          I did get an invite to a shooting range in Texas where you can BYO old office equipment such as TV's, photocopies, printers, computers, etc to decommission with an automatic. I wasn't able to go, but that sounded like fun!

          I believe the SSAA have days that you can come in and try target shooting for Pistols and 22 rimfire rifles. As others have said, if you do, get ready for a long/expensive/new addictive hobby.

          @nocure: No you won't …

          You have to contact the registry to send you an application (eventually…) and then take safety courses, join a club (or buy a farm) and then apply. They then will process it (with a 28 day cooling off period, if you weren't already freezing from the wait) and then send you a form to have your photo taken at the RMS (in NSW) and then they send you your licence.

          BUY YOU CAN'T BUY A GUN YET … you then apply for a Permit to Acquire which takes a couple of months to process and then you can buy one.

          Mine ended up almost 6 months in NSW …

        •  

          @supabrudda: Most clubs will allow you to store your gun(s) there, and some self storage places have approved firearm safe storage available. A lot of clubs will also have club guns for hire, so you can still take up shooting without needing to own your own gun.

          @TheBilly:

          No need for special days. My old boss was egging me on for ages to give shooting a crack, so I rocked up to the SSAA range at Belmont, never held a gun in my life. As I was going up to the counter a member saw me looking a little lost, so he asked if I've ever shot before, I said no, so he said he will give me a crash course on range safety and basic weapon use.

          Went up to the counter, gave them my Drivers License, paid for range fees, gun hire and some bullets, they gave me a .22 rifle, a quick rundown on how to carry it around the range, a box of bullets, a few targets, and I went and joined the other guy.

          He spent about 10 minutes with me going over the basics, including what to do when range is open and closed, saw I was pretty responsible and left me to it. Spent a good hours just plinking away with a .22

          Next Time I went I started with the .22 again, then stepped up to a .22-250. Third time I went I tried a .308, good fun.

          Also shot a 12-gauge over-under, with a skeet launcher, that was hell fun.

          Memorable moment was when I was shooting some .308, and just before range close, a guy came over and set up his gear on the bench next to me. Was a nice looking piece of gear, so while the range was closed for people to change targets, we had a bit of a chat. He was a comp shooter and that was his brand new .308. Anyway when the range opened again, he loaded his first round, aimed away, and let fly, and that's when I realised I forgot my ear plugs, and he had a nice custom muzzle break, that seemed to channel all the noise right into my ears. Good times.

          @AdosHouse:

          I wonder how safe a shooting range is that all the new members get a "Crash course in range safety"

          ???

        • +1 vote

          @b1ackmai1er:

          I wasn't a member. And the range is very safe, you even look like you will break any of the rules, you're out, no second chances. I believe that if I didn't have a known member show me the ropes, the range controller would have ensured I knew every rule.

          And lets face it, its not bloody hard to work a bolt action, single shot rifle.

      Fair enough, but I think it’s a hobby Australia is better off without

    • +2 votes

      you can collect and shoot guns as a hobby. you just need a license, and you're fairly limited as to what you can shoot, but that doesn't mean you're limited to only bolt actions on your standard CAT A B license.

      If you don't know people with big properties to go shooting on, you can shoot in state forests (although i'm not sure how laws differ between states).

      •  

        Yeah I know you can still get guns, it's just the licence is a pain in the ass and it's not something I see myself doing often enough to keep the membership.

        • +1 vote

          I guess that is the object. If you are a dedicated hobbyist, there are avenues, but if you are a casual, it is all a bit tiresome.
          End result is fewer guns in the hands of people who might be careless.

        •  

          @mskeggs:

          Yeah you're right. By no means do I want the laws to change. I just think it would be fun collecting them and shooting them casually. There's an allure with firearms, perhaps the power they possess?

    •  

      Yep, much safer here than the USA. Here only cops and criminals that steal guns from the cops, have guns, whereas in the USA you can defend yourself. Who'd want that, right? ;-p

    If you're looking at getting into range shooting with a pistol, this is a fantastic way to get started.

    Completely wrong. Doesn't have specs but the barrel is clearly wayyy under the legal limit for a club gun.

    This is for security / police only so a very niche deal.

    •  

      My mistake! You're correct, I forgot about the 120mm barrel length requirement.

      •  

        So can i buy it with a cat h license or is the barrel length a problem?

        •  

          Nope, not on Cat H.

          Smith do make a full size version of this pistol called the M&P Pro that is legal.

        •  

          @Merlict:
          Thanks for the reply

        •  

          It’s still a category H weapon. It just depends on your genuine reason for having your license - a property license holder (those long forgotten farmers) could legally own this on paper, they’re not big on issuing farmers with handguns at the moment. It’s just sports/target shooters that have the 120mm requirement, at least in qld anyway.

        •  

          surely the full service sized M&P should be the same cost?

          maybe the target model a bit more?

          I cant see any reason really to own the subcompact size.

          Right.. a bargain for who exactly? The security and police personnel on ozbargain? And what are the savings on this? Whats the RRP - neither the post nor the website say.

          I'm a licensed shooter, so I'm all for gun deals, but the upvoting of this seems to be purely for political reasons.
