  • Some useful additional  information for joining a Pistol Club Below
  • The process of applying for a Category H license can be a bit complicated as you must meet a number of criteria set out in the Weapons Act. First you need to join a Pistol Club. In order to join a pistol club legislation requires that you provide the club with:-If you have an A+B license:-
    • 2 character references
    • A declaration that you do/do not belong to another pistol club
    • A copy of your firearms license

    If you do not have an existing license then you need to provide:-

    • A Statement of Eligibility from Queensland Police
    • 2 character references
    • A declaration that you do/do not belong to another pistol club

    Once you have joined a Pistol Club the Weapons Act then imposes a 6 month probation period before you can apply for a Cat H licence. In that time you need to:

    • Obtain a Category H safety certificate; and
    • Compete in 3 pistol matches (and have your participation recorded and signed off by the Range Officer of the matches).

    Just before the 6 months is up email a copy of your participation record to the Pistol Club and they will complete and send you a Form 518a, which you need for your Cat H license application.
