Anyone wishing to join and later obtain a firearms licence must complete a Weapons Safety Course. The Queensland Military and Rifle Club (QMRC), located within Belmont Shooting Complex, hosts regular Weapons Safety Courses for Category H firearms.
You will need your Australian Government Unique Student Identifier (USI) to register into the courses. Create a USI for free from the Australian Government website.
Visit the QMRC booking page for more information, or to reserve your place at an upcoming course.
Note: Many organisations are conducting Weapons Safety Courses, but not all of them include the category H (pistol) component, please check to ensure that the course you are attending will cover all categories of firearms you intend to possess.
Prerequisites: When attending the range to do a Weapons Safety Course, you must have a photo ID. You will also need to have covered footwear, and a shirt/top with sleeves, singlets, cammo or military style clothing is not acceptable on the range.
