Become a Shooter

Shooting is one of the few sports that encourages and caters for the participation of the young and old, males and females, able-bodied and disabled. Sport shooting is a family-oriented pastime and as Australia’s largest and most active shooting organisation, the SSAA recognises the importance of encouraging people of all ages into the recreation.

The process for becoming a shooter, obtaining a firearms licence and registering your firearms can differ depending on the state or territory in which you live. For more information about the laws, regulations and processes in your area, check out the following links or contact your local SSAA State Office.
