Becoming Licenced

Within the scope of Combined Services Discipline, competitors are involved in matches involving both rifles and pistols. To attain a firearms licence in NSW, there are a number of steps.

The first and most important is to determine what type of shooting you wish to be involved in – whether it be target/sporting, hunting/vermin control or both. Each type of firearm fits into a Category, and each of these categories requires a genuine reason prior to a licence being enacted. The categories of licence relevant to Combined Services Discipline can be found listed below:

Category A – Air Rifles, Rimfire Rifles (other than semi-automatic), Shotguns (other than pump action/semi-automatic), Shotgun-Rimfire Combination Guns
Category B – Centrefire Rifles (other than semi-automatic), Shotgun-Centrefire Combination Guns, Muzzle loaders (other than pistols)
Category H – Pistols

Genuine Reasons:
For every Category of licence you wish to apply for, you must have a genuine reason or both reasons should you wish to engage in both activities. For Category A & B genuine reasons include but are not limited to:

Sport/Target […]

A type of food gathering that’s been used worldwide from the beginning of time is now illegal in Tasmania. Do not be fooled. Do not think “I don’t bow hunt or I don’t hunt, I’m ok”. Be vigilant. It’s a short step to a countrywide ban, and then a ban on all hunting. And then further draconian gun laws. Let’s unite and meet them head on.Bowhunting has been banned in Tasmania!

We support Bowhunting and we'll fight any moves to ban bowhunting in other states and territories.

Tasmanians, remember this the next time you go to vote!

Thanks, Ben Hillbilly Pitt. You’re saying exactly the sort of things we don’t need. Are you an hunting activist? Are you a member of a pro gun organisation lobbying government and private enterprise? I am. I ran for government in the last State Election for the SFF Party. The SSAA is already working hand in hand with the SFF Party and has been lobbying FAR to fix things, not to mention building ranges and working with hunting clubs. Less whinging and more personal effort equals action. That’s why the frickin vegans are getting their way. Because they aren’t all hot air. They’re always on the war path. You’ll have to forgive me if I’m to the point because I speak to a lot of people who whine about government and registry but wouldn’t even take a couples of hours from their day to hand out fliers at the election. “The cat’s sick,” “We were planning to go down the coast,” “Mum & dad are staying that weekend,” “I’m going to the football,” and then gripe for the next 3 years.

A bunch of muppets here tonight.

Nobody: Absolutely fucking nobody: Not one single soul: Government: Hmm. The peasants are too quiet. Better arbitrarily ban something before they start getting ideas again. 🧐🤔

Justin Tran it’s typical really. Always zero personal responsibility for their guns rights and the blame game on everyone else. I was at the NSW AGM and know SSAA NSW is getting political. Robert Borsak was the guest speaker!

Lol. Try and stop people on their own property. So is the ssaa going to finally get political. Or are we still wasting our membership money


and if they ban hunting the country will be over run with feral animals and the government has no idea how to deal with them now

A bit of Kiwi ingenuity, New Zealand started WW2 with no tanks and only a few Bren gun carriers so the Govt decided to build their own.

The Bob Semple tank was designed by NZ Minister of Works Bob Semple. Due to the need to build military hardware with limited materials, the tank was built on a tractor base. Designed and built during a period of uncertainty in which NZ feared having to defend itself from Japanese invasion without external assistance, these tanks were a civilian effort to design and create a means to protect New Zealand. Designed and built without formal plans or blueprints, it had numerous design flaws and practical difficulties, and was never put into mass production or used in combat.

After the loss of most British tanks during the Fall of France, there was no spare production available for New Zealand. Rather than obtain tanks from America, it was felt tanks could be produced locally.

It was decided that a 'tractor-tank' would be an adequate design. The first prototype was built on a Caterpillar D8 crawler tractor, a type which was readily available. The Public Works Department had 81 D8s, and another 19 were also available. The Tank had two layers of Armor, 12.7 mm of corrugated manganese steel atop an additional 8 mm of armour. This combination was effective at stopping 20-millimeter cannon rounds and small arms. However, the crew was vulnerable to bullet particles ricocheting through gaps in the gun ports. The tank was armed with six Bren guns — one in each side, two facing the front, one in the turret and one at the rear. The crew of eight included one gunner who had to lie on a mattress on top of the engine to fire. The vehicle was very tall at 12 ft (3.5 m) and performance was poor.

The tanks were constructed without the use of any formal plans or blueprints. Working from an American postcard depicting the conversion of a tractor to a 'tractor-tank', Bob Semple and TG Beck (Christchurch District Works Engineer), improvised the design of the tanks. Using resources available to Bob Semple as Minister of Public Works, the first tank was quickly produced in the PWD's Temuka workshops. The additional two were built at the NZR Addington Workshops.

The plan was discarded after the tanks attracted public ridicule; however, Bob Semple stood by his design and even stated "I don’t see anyone else coming up with any better ideas."
