Application forms relating to shooting clubs and shooting ranges.

Firearms Registry requirements now apply

Shooting clubs and shooting ranges will need an individual firearms licence holder to register club firearms under their individual account in the Firearms Registry. This could be split between multiple people, but if one of these people resigns from the club, the arms items must be transferred to another member of the club with a firearms licence and any required endorsements.
