TEMPORARY FIREARMS PERMIT – MAKING IT EASY FOR YOU
Any competitor attending the 2017 Australian Sporting Clay Nationals to be held at Echidna Park Sporting Clays, Geraldton on 8 to 10 September 2017 will require a Temporary Firearms Permit.
As a courtesy to all competitors attending the Nationals, the WA State Secretary Sue Green will assist you with all the paperwork required and help you every step of the way so you can lodge your application with WA Licesning Services.
Under the WA Firearms Act 17A, the officer who we will be dealing with says the application must be made by the group or individual and he has approved our State Secretary to assist with the applications.
If this permit is done via an Interstate Group Permit Form 6 Section 17A there are NO FEES. However, if you prefer to go it alone and apply as an individual there will be a cost of $58.00 in fees. It is highly recommended to go through the Section 17A permit. Just get your name on the list and if you have to cancel your travel plans that’s OK, just apply and get your name on a list.
