quick question you guys might be able to answer.

 

i actually rang up to apply for my class A and B licence (NSW).. i mainly wanna do some target shooting and odd hunting with workmates that want me to come out with them.

 

now i will join the local sport shooting club so that covers me for the target shooting legit reason, the woman i spoke to on the phone said that to get a licence to cover hunting i would need a 1 off approval from a landowner to sign my forms saying i can shoot for pest control etc etc on his land, however if i had property i could use that as a legitimate reason as long as its rural.

 

now i have about 3 acres up north, but its a pretty built up area, house on every lot of the street etc, but i looked at my land rates and it stated the property was resedential rural? would that cover me to be able to shoot, its only a big big vacant block of land really, i mean i guess there would be rabbits there, then again its only 3 acres.

 

is that a legit reason to get licence for hunting?

If you have a licence for target shooting, you can still go hunting with your rifle / shotgun. There aren't different licences for each, you just need to pick a reason and present that to the cops. Once you have the licence and the (Class A & B) gun you don't need to actually go target shooting (though it does help for surprise inspections etc). Also in QLD for land to be used for hunting it has to be so many hundred metres from a building/residence (can't remember) OR at least 40 acres in size.

 

Also RE: pistols, it's 3 shoots per class (calibre) of pistol owned as mentioned before. You can only get up to a .38 for target shooting, and for up to a .45 you have to do sillouhette shoots.

handguns i am tossing up between a S&W mp9 a H&K USP expert cz sp01 shadow (currently the leader due to price and features) and an sti trojan 5", work I am going to outfit my guards with the H&K when i get the buisness to that level. Never been a fan of revolvers and glocks annoy me for some reason. have been looking at a barrett 99 in .416 or a barrett 98bravo in .338 lately as well for some big bore shooting (thats if i even have a chance of getting one in)

 

I just had a look on the Barrett website and that 98Bravo looks frikkin mean!

I think you have to be able to shoot on said land legally. It doesnt really sound like it... All you need to do is get onto someone you know, a friend of a friend maybe, and just have them give you permission to shoot on their land. if the reason is for "hunting" i dont think you need to do the compulsory range attendance in NSW? *NOT SURE DONT QUOTE ME* :)

 

you could also become a member of the SSAA, that is a valid reason, but you have to attended club activities a certain amount of times a year for it to remain a reason for owning firearms.

i've already got the quals so it's only extra training stuff. anything in particular that the wide bay tafe does in particular?

 

and as for the cert 3/psd it's not the cert 3 securty i already have the shit for that and slowly working through it (when i remember) it's a cert 3 in executive protection, so the course is similer to what cri in the states do. with the exception of a few guns they won't let us use and no shooting from helicopters.

 

it's a crappy vid but i can't be bothered finding the good ones right now. but here's a quick cri vid

A .177 gammo air rifle (for toad hunting/mucking around)

a .243 for hunting and target shooting

and a 9mm beretta 90-two pistol.

 

99% of the time I shoot the beretta, i very rarely take the rifles out.

head on to usedguns.com.au . the price of remingtons and other rifles went up a few hundred when the US dollar went to crap and the economic crap etc etc think around $1500-1600 could be the ballpark now, but it really depends on scope choice, anything from like $300-700 for a decent scope.

 

theres a Weatherby Varmint on there for $850, that leaves $350 for a scope which would get you a alright one, perhaps a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9. ive got one of those scopes and its great value for money.

 

got a local gun shop? head in, have a look, a fiddle, a play etc and see if theyll do packages etc, when i got my Remington they threw in scope rings, bipod and bag for free.

A mate of mine recently picked up an old heavy barrel Tikka in .222 with a thumbhole stock for $500. The accuracy we have been getting out of the thing is rediculous considering the cost. It puts nearly all of my mates other heavy barrels to shame with consistant sub inch grouping at 200m!It was purchased from Fisher Fire Arms in SA. As far as .223, I have a mate with an ADL which is nice to shoot and does the job and another with a VTR which has been put in a HS stock. Both are quite accurate but out of the two I preferred shooting the VTR. The muzzle flash from the VTR is also quite novel.

 

Another caliber to consider if you are varmit shooting is .204. There are some damn explosive pills available in that caliber and f**k me do they move!

A video of me having my first (and probably last) shot with a pump action 12g. Taken at Phuket Shooting Range. If you ever go there dont bother with anything but the 12g as their prices are rediculous but having the chance to shoot a pump action 12g was worth the money.
