THE NATIONAL SHOOTING COUNCIL now offers shooters in Queensland, New South Wales (R licence) and Victoria hunting as a genuine reason for holding their shooters licences.
It means that more of your investment in shooting will go towards protecting the future of our sport than before – and might even cost you less.
Leading our political fights
In a little over two years, The NSC has carved its place out as the leading organistions for lobbying, taking legal action against dud gun laws and covering every election campaign.
This is action that has been badly need for a long time, in the face of opponents who simply don’t see the positives that come with firearm use.
Sick and tired of seeing inaction erode what they do, shooter have repeatedly asked the NSC to provide genuine reason. The most common complaint is about what existing shooting organisations who claim to be fighting for our rights, simply aren’t doing that – and that many of you would jump ship from where you are now, if we were able to offer genuine reason.
Three states down, more to go
Well, the great news is that we’re now able to offer genuine reason in Queensland, NSW (R licence) and Victoria.
To do this, we partnered with the Hunters & Shooters Society of Australia (HSSA) who provide the genuine reason (inclusive of $20 public liability insurance), for a total cost of $85 – which is cheaper than some other organisations (SSAA’s base for regular members is $93),
Or, if our genuine reason isn’t right for you, you can continue to enjoy NSC membership without these frills for just $35 for regular membership or $25 for pensioners.
What we do
The NSC doesn’t run shooting ranges, so we can’t offer that to you.
However most shooters don’t have access to a range or need one, so we’re hoping our membership offering will have a wider appeal among shooters than is currently offered by most shooting organisations.
What we provide is real representation for shooters through legal actions, political action and the provision of pro-gun voting advice at every state, territorial and federal election.
Simply put, the NSC offers real political benefits for shooters, regardless of whether or not they shoot at ranges.
The long term goal
The NSC aims to continue to make genuine reason for hunting even more accessible in other states and territories – and eventually expand into target shooting and gun collecting.
We will also be ramping up our political actions – and take an increasingly harder line against unfriendly politicians.
