Licensing & Permits
Australian firearms licenses are regulated by state governments under the Weapons Act 1990. In Queensland (QLD), firearms licences and permits are processed through QLD Police under the name of 'Weapons Licensing'. Permits are often abreveated to 'PTA' for 'Permit to Acquire'. To legally acquire a firearm in QLD, you must hold a valid QLD firearms licence and for each firearm you must apply for a PTA.
