The Bellingen Rifle Club conducts a number of courses on an “on demand” basis, including the mandatory safety course required for obtaining a firearms license. Contact the club for more information on, or to arrange:

  • SSAA Safe Shooting Course (also see link below). This is a prerequisite for a firearms license.
  • Minor’s Permit (ages 12-17)
  • R-license and G-license for hunting in approved NSW state forests
  • DPI courses, including Making A Successful Shot and Safe Butchering of your Game Meat

Membership of the Bellingen Branch of the SSAA can be used as a genuine reason for target shooting, hunting, and collecting licenses.

The cost of the Safe Shooting course is $80.00 (cash), which includes your range fees for the practical component of the course and ammunition. You will be able to use a Club .22 rifle for the practical component of the course.
