General firearms safety

One of the first steps towards obtaining a firearms licence, and participating in the safe, fun and unique range of shooting sports that SSAA NSW offers, is to complete a Safe Handling course.

This is a mandatory requirement for anyone seeking to obtain a Firearms Licence in NSW.

SSAA NSW has instructors from all corners of the State who can assist you with this Course. You can find a list of these instructors, along with contact details HERE.

Once you have contacted your local SSAA Safe Shooting Instructor you will be given a Safe Shooting guide to prepare you for both the theoretical and practical components of the Course.

Your Safe Shooting Instructor will be able to provide this to you, but if you would like a copy please contact our office on 02 8889 0400.

This manual will give you an introduction to the different types of firearms and their parts and operation. It will also discuss safety rules surrounding the use of firearms and well as relevant NSW legislation.

All of our Safe Shooting Instructors have been endorsed by their local branch and recognised by the NSW Firearms Registry, and they will be happy to give you all the information you need to get started in the shooting sports.

If you have any questions about the Safe Shooting course or would like more information about applying for your firearms licence please give our friendly staff at SSAA NSW Head Office a call on 02 8889 0400.
