Queensland legislation restricts the use of handguns with calibres of more than .38 inch but not more than .45 inch for sports or target shooting. For such weapons, magazine capacity is restricted to 10 rounds or less and they may only be used for the following “accredited events”:
- A metallic silhouette competition
- A single action competition
For the purposes of obtaining a Visitor's Licence, the Authorised Officer of Weapons Licensing requires all concealable licence (Sports or Target shooting) holders to establish the barrel length of each category H weapon that the licence holder wishes to use.
You are not permitted to use concealable firearms for recreational shooting.
