This firearms safety course covers the safe usage of Category M weapons (Crossbow safety).
10618NAT Course in Firearms Safety (approved for firearms licensing in Queensland) – CATEGORY M CROSSBOWS
Crossbows are classed as a Category M weapon in QLD. They can be used for sports and target shooting, as well as recreational shooting on a property. Unlike firearms, they are quiet and the bolts travel shorter distances than projectiles making them a great alternative to firearms on smaller properties; or perhaps something for the avid bow hunter to consider.
A basic introduction to crossbows, this course encompasses the essential skills and knowledge in relation to weapons legislation, crossbows in the community, licensing requirements, safe handling, safe storage and transport as well as a range of additional information that is essential for all arbalests. The course content is covered through a range of mediums including classroom-based theory, practical handling of a crossbow and a live fire activity on an approved range.

“Please pass my best thanks to Mark for the reloading course on Saturday.
From his dedication to teach, I learnt a lot in a short time and I feel confident now to go into reloading by myself. I won’t hesitate to come again for another course.
