Membership FAQ

To own a firearm in Australia you are required to full the requirements of a ‘genuine reason’. Each state is a little bit different but most of them require you to either have access to a LOT of land, or be a member of a hunting club that’s providing you with insurance.

Through the clubs insurance you gain access to a genuine reason to hunt and can cite your membership information when applying for a firearm license.

Step 1: Application.

When seeking to use Australian Hunters and HSSA membership as the genuine reason for a new (or renewal) firearm license application, eligible members must first complete the insurance and genuine reason‘ application form on the insurance and genuine reason page. (Note you will need to be logged in to do this)

Note this page is only available for premium and platinum members. For monthly premium and platinum members this page is unlocked after 92 days, for annual members it’s available immediately after registration.

Step 2: Confirmation.

Once this form is submitted the information will automatically be sent to the HSSA for processing. After processing your application the HSSA will send you an email confirming that your insurance and genuine reason are now active.

Prior to receiving this email confirmation your certificate of membership is not valid evidence of genuine reason for owning a firearm and cannot be used in a firearm license application. 

Step 3: Evidence of genuine reason for firearm application/renewal.

Once your insurance and genuine reason is confirmed you can now proceed in attaching your membership certificate (which was emailed to you as a pdf attachment the same day you signed up for membership) to your firearm license application or renewal.

Note, each state has different requirements and processes when it comes to presenting evidence so be sure to read these requirements carefully. If your membership certificate is insufficient evidence for genuine reason please contact us

The Australia Hunters membership only offers genuine reason for category A, B and M (in QLD) firearms. This includes rifles and shotguns, it does not include handguns.

We currently have pending applications via  the HSSA to be able to provide genuine reason for  South Australia and Tasmania and hope to offer this in the future via our premium and platinum membership tiers.

At this stage we do not have any pending applications to provide genuine reason in Western Australia or the Northern Territory. Hopefully this changes in the future.
