Welcome to the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia Sunshine Coast
Branch Inc., Australia's peak body for sporting shooters.
It’s SAFE because everyone involved with the sport takes the safety of
all participants seriously. In fact, shooting is one of the safest sports
around! We, as law abiding firearms owners, are regulated by some of the
strictest gun laws, not only in Australia but worldwide.
It’s FUN because it’s a sport that allows anyone (over 11 of
course) to participate on a level playing field; that makes it a great family
sport. The shooting sports also offer a large variety of different disciplines
that are challenging in many different ways and also encourage a strong sense
of camaraderie amongst competitors.
And it’s UNIQUE because it’s one of the oldest Olympic sports
and is a sport that you can enjoy in a group or as an individual. It
doesn’t require a shooter to be the fittest, or the fastest or the
tallest - everyone is welcome to participate. However, it does require skill,
accuracy and consistency which makes for a very challenging sport.
The SSAA can help new shooters get involved in one of Australia's most
challenging and exciting sports. Staff at our shooting range can help you
through the membership process and conduct safety training to help you qualify
for a firearms license. Once you have been issued with your license you are on
the road to a pleasurable and rewarding sport.
