How to Become a Member

Welcome to the Australian Clay Target Association (ACTA), information page on becoming a member.

To contact your nearest club to see what is involved with clay target shooting, click on the map of Australia on our home page and this will link you through to your nearest club and association list. Most clubs have provisions for non-shooters to come and try the sport, which may include the use of a loan gun. However, to shoot regularly you must obtain a firearms license and join a club.

The Police in each state issue firearms licenses and unfortunately the requirements for each state vary. Click on the link below to take you to the Firearms Registry for your state. That registry will have details on what you need to do to obtain a firearms license.

Residents of the ACT can contact Firearms Registry in Canberra at www.afp.gov.au/firearms or contact the NSW Firearms Registry.

Once you have joined a club you can then participate in club shoots, practice days and any other shoots held by the ACTA affiliated clubs. Should you wish to buy a gun, members of the Committee of your local club can advise you on the type you require and where to purchase one locally. Your state Firearms Registry will be able to tell you what the legal requirements are to buy a gun in your state.

Your club membership will include membership to the ACTA. When you join your club the ACTA will issue you with:

1. A shooters record book (depending on category when joining) in which you can record your shoot results from any Club, Zone, State or National competition shoot that you enter.

2. An ACTA badge (depending on category when joining).

3. The current ACTA rules can be downloaded from our website.

4. A monthly copy of the Clay Target Shooting News, the official journal of the ACTA (E-news only).

For further enquiries regarding joining a clay target club or the Australian Clay Target Association, contact us on 02 6938 2121 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
