An important message regarding vaccination restrictions

In some states including Queensland, shooters do not legally have to be vaccinated to attend a range and a range may allow non-vaccinated shooters to attend, potentially with additional social distancing requirements in place.

However, they do not have to allow non-vaccinated shooters to attend and are legally within their rights to restrict access to vaccinated shooters only. We know a number of ranges have chosen to do this, for various reasons. While we agree with the Government (in this instance!) that excluding unvaccinated shooters is unnecessary, Shooters Union respects the right of clubs to run their ranges as they see fit.

If you do face difficulties, then your options are to discuss the matter with the range/association, and either get vaccinated or find somewhere else to shoot if they refuse to change the policy.

  • Shooters Union Australia is a not for profit organisation which represents thousands of firearms owners and users across Australia. We are actively involved in the political scene, lobbying against the unfair, unreasonable and unconstitutional vilification of firearms owners at every level of government. Our aim is to work towards a co-operative system of effective gun control, and together we are affecting positive change on firearm legislation in Australia. Help us to change the social dialogue around firearms, firearms ownership and the shooters themselves.
