This licence entitles an incorporated club to own firearms for its members or prospective members to use on approved firearm ranges. A Firearm Club is defined by the Act as a "shooting union, association, club or other group of persons, however described, who associate for purposes connected with the discharge of firearms."
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Applicants must be an incorporated body affiliated with a national or international shooting organisation. Not only must the club be licensed, but the facilities which a club uses must be inspected and approved by the Commissioner of Police as being safe for use by club members as well as the public. This requires an inspection by qualified range inspectors, who generally travel throughout the Territory on a yearly basis.
