Section 95 of the Weapons Regulation 2016 refers to the storage of weapons not in a licensee’s physical possession when away from secure storage facilities.
If a suitably licensed person is visiting Queensland from another state or from overseas and is unable to reasonably return their weapon to their safe storage facility, all weapons, when not in their physical possession, must be stored unloaded in either:
- a securely closed container with the bolt removed or with a trigger lock fitted; or
- a locked container.
The container must be either:
- out of sight in a locked room of a permanent building; or
- locked in the boot of a vehicle; or
- out of sight, locked in a vehicle that does not have a boot.
Note: This does not replace your usual secure storage facility as defined by section 94 of the Weapons Regulations 2016.
