G'day all,

Just put the paper work through to get my licence, and open for any tips and tricks of shooting.

Now I'm trying to survive the harsh cool off and processing period, Anyone have some knowledge on how long that might be? Really excited to getting into shooting.

Welcome to the forum.

Interesting nic name you chose. You might want to change it if you don't want a lot of razzing by the other members.

I'm not sure how long it is currently taking, it has been hit and miss, since the new system came in last year.

haha, probably, It's a really old chili peppers song guess not too many ppl would know that, ahwell.

Yeah I'm hoping for a month and a half wait, but it'll probably take longer. Was the old system generally faster?

It did depend on who you were dealing with. If a good cop, then 28 days exactly. If not, then anything from 28 to whatever.

Hello,

From Perth here. I'm fairly new to shooting, definately something I want to get more involved with. Just picked up a Weatherby Vanguard in .223 and a CZ 452 Varmint in .22.

Just had to go through the whole original licence application. It took me a full 31 days from whem i submitted my application at Australia Post till i got my licence in the mail. I had them send out the letter to install the safe around day 20. I was fairly pleased with the service compared to stories i have heard.

Don't mind to play around with the .22 at the range but hunting is more the field i'd like to get into.

Hi all have been shooting and hunting all my life, recently moved here from my home country Ireland where I done a lot of game shooting and hunting, there is a season for everything Sep - Feb I shot deer in some of the most beautiful green country known, the same season we had Pheasant shooting Duck shooting, during the summer months I would shoot rabbits at first light and late evening while during the day I would be out with my Red tail hawk, Harris hawk or one of the my falcons Gyr/saker, Gyr/pere and peregrine, and in the winter months before the game season I would shoot foxes as part of the vermin control system for the local gun club where I was vice secretary.

+1 on that.

You might be better off getting club support , even if it's a cheap single shot, then once you have a lic chase up farmers etc for property letters, Join the SSAA as it's good to show the cocky you have shooting related insurance.

If you show that you are a shooting club member and have insurance you may get the nod over some cold canvaser with nothing but a gun and a spotlight.

Hi All,

I've recently got back into guns and hunting through my In-laws. Don't get much time to go out these days but I squeeze in the odd weekend here and there shooting vermin on a variety of properties north and south of perth that we have access to. And once a year we head up to Station Country near the Canning Stock Route for a 14 day 4wd adventure with family and friends.

I have a Boito O/U 12G Shotgun and a Bruno CZ .22 which I find is versatile enough for me to join in the action. I've been playing around with rifled slugs through the smooth bore with good results.

Keen to glean some info off like minded people and share my knowledge and respect for this great state we live in.

Cheers,

Sabi

Club support might settle your problem but it may take a while

welcome newbies. Read, learn and contribute.

Thanks Beno. I think its a great forum so far. Been reading up on heaps of info and its been great. Apart from Club Shoots and the odd trip with my family, I don't get to talk much about guns/hunting with other people due to the stigma attached to hunters. I spose I just get sick of the arguments. So its a nice change to be able to speak freely and enjoy some good debate and learn from experienced people.

And Len ... Tonto is great but we lost Silver to Mondo Meats a couple of weeks ago. Not complaining, I'm just happy he went there versus the glue factory.

Cheers guys.

Hi All

Originally from Zambia in Africa, I have been hunting since I was a kid with my dad. We have been in Perth since 2003 and now am looking to get back into a bit of hunting with my son. It is all new to me here, so I thought this would be the best place to find out what happens here

Cheers

Brett

Don't worry, no Afrikaans. I am just down the road in Ocean Reef. Have done a bit of rabbit and goat hunting here with my brother. Do you mainly go to the gun club or do you also go out hunting? So far we haven't really spoken to many people who share the same interests, so it was great to find this forum.

I have a roo shooters license and I am getting out more and more lately, also got a few places close by to pop a few bunnies and foxes on.

I also get my share of range hero time in.

PM me if you like.
