I'm looking at starting a paintball team on the north side of brisbane. How do i go about getting my class A licensce and can any one recommend any contacts in the US that i can import a shipment of markers off? Also...what are the customs rules with importing markers.

The first thing you need to do is to call your local police department and they should give you a few peoples names and phone numbers of people who do wepons training courses. You will then have to complete one of those courses then go down the cop shop and pick up the reletive froms for the firarms licence (there are two forms, on is for personal ID and the other is about the firearms licence itself) fill them out and send them to the firarms department and wait to get it back, and as for getting your class B licence if you have no luck with finding somone in a rural area for pest irradications you could just become a member of your local shooters club and this would be adequate to get the class B licence.
Hope this helps.

Thanks mate...i just want a property so we don't have to worry about bloody rifle range fees and all that. What about imports?

Any contacts in the US or is it too difficult with legal parafenhalia

you dont need to contact the US....call dealers right here in OZ.....look in the for sale section or call one of the business listed.....
While you can import yourself, there are quite a few traps for the unwary.
I would recommend getting a Licensed dealer to do the importing.

But imports are cheaper...right?

Without sounding too pedantic, must there be talk on this forum of shooting guns that kill rather than mark? :/

just figured that while i was here seeking info on the markers...i'd seek info on places to use them as well as for some other recreation. sorry mate. didn't mean to offend anyone. Another big reason that we want a property is so that we can do camps and the like...such as a 3 day stalk, or running battle...or team building exercises, or the like. That's why we want to import around 20 markers...and with the new laws it looks good.
Once again...no offence meant by the inclusion of recreational shooting as a subject. Just lookin for some answers, that's all. Figured this would be a good place to kill two birds with one stone...so to speak.

Also...licenced dealer = firearms dealer or paintball specialist? And i am looking to import 20 or so markers...not just one and doing it under the name of an existing community organisation (a church as a matter of fact...). Guessing i would save heaps by direct import. What say those in the know? We can handle paper-work.
From someone in the know, i say if your serious go down to your local field, or PM RIPS paintball Pete Martin and he will tell you everything you need to know.
Bris North: Skirmish Samford or Top Gun Paintball fields.
Bris West: National Paintball fields in Blacksoil near Ipswich
Dude no offence but you don't sound to me like you have played Paintball before???
Click on the RIPS paintball link in my Signature for Pete's email address and phone numbers and he will be able to EXPLAIN EVERYTHING for you.
But imports are cheaper...right?
They can be, on the other hand if you make a mistake or the markers fail to comply they will be confiscated by customs.
Thats why I strongly recommend a licensed dealer.
You may save money doing it yourself, or you may endup spending a lot of monmey and getting nothing.

THanks for your help on the RIPS dude. I'll chase him up...
