    ...applied for my gun license!!!
    Well to be more specific my "Recreational Hunting and Pest control license".
    All forms have been posted today along with the letter signed by the owner of the property of where i'm going to do the most shooting.
    Now to wait 3 months to get processed and hope i didn't fill out anything wrong. :wtc:
    This is the best way to own a firearm compared to applying for my target shooting license where i have to attend regular meetings, pay club fees etc.
    Then to choose my first gun, probably a CZ .22, although i'll have to wait another month to recieve it. Then i'll probably get a .303 or .223 or 30-30. Still tossing up.
    Can't wait to get out to my mates farm and do some hunting :bigthumb:

    That blows you have to jump through all those hoops. You'd think in a country that has umpteen of the world's deadliest creatures, that gun ownership would be pretty common...

    awesome, hope it goes smoothly.
    tell your political representative (not sure how government works in Australia- elected parlaiment?) that second point. it's not about what cause is best/right/whatevs; it's all about what cause gets the most good publicity

    I came in here to say something similar.

    Laws don't matter if you don't get caught. (I am not saying break the law)

    good for you for going through with it and showing them that people DO wand to own guns legally.

    sucks about everything else, though
