How to Join the Ipswich Pistol Club

Ipswich Pistol Club welcomes new members.  Not only is being a member of the club a great social experience, a firearms licence is not a requirement to become a member.  However membership of a pistol club is a requirement for a H (Pistol) firearms licence application process.    The application process is as follows:

  1. Complete membership application and submit with support documentation.
  2. Pay membership fees
  3. Committee Approval
  4. Get involved!

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our secretary at

2.0 Membership Fees

A $50 application fee is required as part of the application process.  This is non-refundable in the event your application is non re-fundable.   If the application process is successful, the first year's membership fees will be pro-rata amount based on your application date and membership type (individual, family etc)

Once the secretary has confirmed your membership application and supporting documentation is correct, your application will be circulated to the committee for consideration.


If the Committee determines to proceed you will be invited to a Committee meeting (usually second Saturday of each month) to meet and greet.
