I have a question regarding PTA's I have 2 currently processing, both are for the same dealer. I want to change dealers, can i do this over the phone or will I need to put a new PTA in? This is for QLD.

Hum, good question and I'd suggest you ring Licensing Branch and explain the situation. Interested in the answer... :)

The only thing I could find reference I could find re changing a PTA after it's been issued is -

Modifying a PTA

If you require modification to a PTA (i.e. you have changed your mind about the weapon to be acquired) you must return the original PTA to Weapons Licensing for modification.


Now, while this doesn't specifically mention changing the dealer, this may be broadly interpreted to cover all modifications of a PTA. NSW has a similar rule.

This no doubt may crop up - Dealer has lost the agency and can no longer get the firearm, Model has been discontinued/ out of stock but another dealer has it, Dealer has ceased business.

How did you get on? :thumbsup:

If it's before it's sent, phone calls are fine. Once they send it they ask you to post it back.

I applied for a 308 bolt. Then the lgs sold the rifle i wanted so i changed to lever 12g then was called by the lgs to say the 308 i wanted wasnt sold. So i called and changed back to the 308 drove to the shop to pay for and secure the rifle to be told it was sold... so i put money down on a 12g again and once again called wlb and had it changed.

From now on im only going to put the pta in after i put a deposit on the gun and after i change the shop i go to.

How long did it take to get your PTA back? I recieved my PTA in the mail yesterday however they listed the wrong dealer so I had to express post it back for them to change the dealer and Ive asked them to fax it directly to them. Needless to say I was a bit let down being my first PTA.

QLD Police lost my PTA twice. Worst part is, the action listed is wrong so I'll have to send it back once I finally get it. Applied 02 Feb and still waiting.

Yo Substance, what was so special about the 308 bolt that the dealer couldn't get another one? i thought 308 BA's where as common as.

What we don't know is whether or not a serial number was noted in the PTA application. If so, it was for a specific firearm.
Any PTA that I've applied for, even if it's an interstate transfer, I've NEVER noted a serial number. The dealer will note that at the time of the transfer.
We don't know the whole story.
