There are several Weapons Licences that you can apply for in Queensland. The type of Weapons Licence you need to acquire will depend upon the categories and specifications of the firearms you with to purchase and own.

     

    Types of Weapons Licences

     

    The type of licence you need depends on the category of weapon you want to own or use, and what you want to use it for.

    • Firearms Licence: The most commonly used general licence used by farmers and sports and target shooters.
    • Minor: A restricted firearms licence for young people between the ages of 11 and17 which allows use of weapons in certain circumstances, but not the acquisition of firearms.
    • Visitor: For people temporarily visiting Queensland with a firearm.
    • Armourer: Required if you run a business for the storage, manufacture, modification or repair of weapons.
    • Dealer: Required if you run a business buying or selling weapons.
    • Firearms instructor: Required if you give firearms’ training on behalf of a Registered Training Organisation.
    • Group: Authorises members of an organisation or employees of an organisation to possess and use weapons for the purpose stated on your licence e.g. members of a sports or target shooting club.
    • Blank-fire firearm: Issued for the use of blank-fire firearms for use in the theatre or at sporting events.
    • Theatrical ordnance supplier: Required if you run a business supplying weapons on a temporary basis for use in theatre film or television productions.
    • Collector's licence: Required by weapons collectors and permits the ownership of temporarily or permanently disabled weapons.
    • Miscellaneous weapons: Required for the use of body armour, crossbows and the possession of some knives.
    • Concealable firearms: Specifically for handguns.
    • Security (guard): Required if you provide armed security services for the escort of valuables.
    • Security (organisation): Required by businesses providing armed security services for the escort of valuables by licensed employees.

     

    Firearms Licence

     

    This is the most common type of weapons licence held in Queensland. It allows you to possess and use single shot or manual repeating rifles and shotguns (categories A & B). Genuine reasons for a firearms licence include sports and target shooting or occupational reasons (for example, if you work in primary production). It’s possible to possess a semi-automatic rifle or shotgun (categories C & D) under a firearms licence, but you will need to provide strong evidence for your genuine reason to possess these more powerful weapons.

     

    Concealable Firearms Licence

    A concealable firearms licence authorises the possession and use of category H weapons. Category H includes any firearm under 75cm in length, except a powerhead. Even if such a firearm has been rendered permanently inoperable, it is still classified as category H. This can include an air pistol, a centre-fire pistol, black powder pistol or a rim-fire pistol. A concealable firearms licence can only be issued for one of the following genuine reasons:

    • Sports or target shooting
    • Primary production
    • Other occupational reasons.

    See How to Apply for a Concealable Firearms Licence for Target Shooting

     

    Minor's Licence

     
    A minor’s licence allows you to possess and use category A, B & H weapons for sports or target shooting; or primary production on rural land. In some cases, your minor’s licence may allow you to use a category C weapon for clay target shooting or occupational purposes. A minor’s licence can only be issued to someone between the ages of 11 and 17 years (inclusive). Once you turn 18, you will have to apply for an appropriate adult licence, as your minor’s licence will no longer be valid.

     

    Collector's Licence


    ​​To be considered collectable, a firearm must be of obvious and significant commemorative, historic, thematic or investment value. There are two types of licence in this category – a collector’s licence (weapons) and a collector’s licence (heirloom). A collector’s licence (weapons) is for a person or group that collects weapons, such as a museum, historical society or RSL.

    Any weapons held must be made temporarily or permanently inoperable (depending on the category of weapon) and cannot be operated or discharged under this licence. A collector’s licence (heirloom) is for a person who has been handed down a single weapon as part of a will or bequest. The weapon must be made permanently inoperable. Only one weapon can be registered to this licence.

     

    Blank-fire Firearms Licence


    Blank-fire firearms licences allow the use of blank-fire firearms for two purposes only – to start sporting events, or for use in theatrical productions. A blank-fire firearms licence can be issued to a theatrical organisation, or an athletic or other sporting organisation.

     

    Visitor's Licence


    A visitor’s licence allows you to use a weapon while you are in Queensland as a visitor. If you are visiting from another Australian state or territory, you do not need a visitor’s licence, as long as you are using the weapons as part of:

    A shooting competition, including training for a shooting competition,
    Recreational shooting (hunting) on rural land with the written consent of the owner, or
    A requirement to shoot on rural land for an occupational purpose.
    For all other reasons, interstate visitors to Queensland must apply for a visitor’s licence.

    If you are an international visitor and you wish to use a weapon while in Queensland or elsewhere in Australia, you will need a visitor’s licence and a special permit from Australian Police. You must be entitled by law to possess and use a weapon in the state or country where you normally reside.

     

    Miscellaneous Weapon's Licence


    A miscellaneous weapons licence covers weapons in the E and M categories. Category E includes bulletproof vests and body armour. Category M includes crossbows and some martial arts weapons, as well as some historical or military weapons. If you want to possess a crossbow for sports, target or recreational shooting or historical and military re-enactments, you need a miscellaneous weapons licence.

     

    Firearms Licence (Instructor) Licence


    The firearms licence (instructor) licence allows you to possess and use firearms to deliver approved firearms training. To apply for this licence, you must be authorised by a registered training organisation and have completed the relevant course/s. You can then possess and use firearms within the categories endorsed on your licence for use in training. Legislation also allows students taking an approved course to possess or use a firearm supplied by the licensed instructor, under supervision from the instructor as part of the training course.

     

    Armourer's Licence


    ​​An armourer’s licence is for a person or organisation that operates a business storing, manufacturing, modifying or repairing weapons. The armourer’s licence may be endorsed for weapon categories A, B, C, D, E, H, M and R.

     

    Group Licence


    ​​A group licence allows the members, officers and employees of the group to physically possess and use weapons for the purpose stated on the licence. However, the members, officers or employees must hold a current licence that allows them to possess and use weapons of the same type allowed under the group licence. A group licence can be issued for two genuine reasons – either because an individual or organisation has an occupational need to possess weapons, or for a sports or target shooting club.

     

    Security Licence (Guard)


    A security guard is a person who patrols, protects, watches over or guards (protects) their own or someone else’s property, as part of their own business or as an employee of a security business. There are four types of security licence:

    Security licence (guard) - employee: a security guard employed by a security organisation.
    Security licence (guard) - sole provider: a security guard who works as a sole provider.
    Security licence (guard) - business: relates to a person protecting their own property and not providing security services to others.
    Security licence - organisation: relates people or organisations providing security services by licensed employees.

     

    Theatrical Ordnance Supplier's Licence


    A theatrical ordnance supplier's licence is for a person or organisation that supplies weapons on a temporary basis for use in theatrical, film or television productions. The supply of the weapons must not involve a change of ownership of the weapons. This licence allows the possession and supply of blank-fire, replica or permanently inoperable firearms.

     

    Dealer's Licence


    A dealer is a person (other than an armourer or theatrical ordnance supplier) who operates a business that:

    Acquires, sells or disposes of weapons
    Displays weapons for sale
    Possesses weapons for sale.
    A dealer’s licence allows you to operate a business buying, selling and broking the weapons endorsed on the licence, except for category R and restricted category M weapons. It allows you to act as a broker for a theatrical ordnance supplier to acquire permanently inoperable or blank-fire weapons in category R. It also allows you to receive, dispatch, repair or store weapons.
