You will need this permit to acquire a paintball marker (paintball gun). Any firearm that is designed to fire a paintball is classified as a paintball marker. To acquire a new paintball marker you must hold a current paintball marker licence. A separate permit is required for each new paintball marker you obtain.
You do not need this permit if you intend to participate in paintball activities at approved locations using paintball markers owned by someone else, such as the field operator.
