As a direct result of lobbying and representations by Shooters Union South Australia, suppressors are now available for contract shooters in South Australia, even if they are not shooting on Crown Land!
Shooters Union South Australia has been lobbying SAPOL on the issue and successfully made the case that suppressors were a necessity for contract shooters.
SAPOL agreed and have said applications for suppressors will be considered on a case-by-case basis but we can confirm permits are being (and have been) issued for contract shooters who are shooting on private property.
This is fantastic work by Shooters Union South Australia and we will continue to lobby for suppressors to be made available to ALL licensed shooters across Australia.
In the meantime this common sense change by South Australia is an important step in ensuring professional shooters have the tools they need to do their jobs effectively.
