Become a Shooter

Why start shooting?

Shooting is one of the few sports that encourages and caters for the participation of the young and old, males and females, able-bodied and disabled.

Sports Shooting is a family-oriented pastime and as Australia’s largest and most active shooting organisation, the SSAA recognises the importance of encouraging people of all ages into the recreation.

The process for becoming a shooter, obtaining a firearms licence and registering your firearms can differ depending on the state or territory in which you live. To kick start yours in Queensland, become a member of SSAA Sunshine Coast now here: SSAA Members Site
