Nah bud wouldn’t worry yet not sure their is a set time scale for ID checks, and recon Easter would have slowed things down,
If stressing leave it a couple weeks then contact them

Hi all I lodged my application on the 31st of March 2019 I received a call from weapons License last 2 weeks ago something about my photo wasn’t acceptable and advised me to get passport photos which I did on the same day and sent them the photo cause there in the process of doing my application but haven’t received word for my Id check yet ? Wonder how long it takes and I put a pta out for a howa 243 more then 28 days ago and haven’t got any word of that either

I believe they do a sort of quick check at the start to see if they have all the basic requirements,
Reckon not much happened in weapon licensing over Easter break lol
Doubt you’d hear anything from the PTAs till you have your licence

Hi I have just moved to a new property and was wondering on a location on the safe to be bolted can i have a safe that's bolted to a concrete wall but off the ground around 300mm the concrete floor and concrete wall is a bit odd shapped where they meet and doesn't sit flush but if I lift it off the ground it sits flush against the wall I can have it in another location but it would be more out in the open

Cheers bud am happy emailed that PTA’s are approved, spoke to gun shop today and they have the pta so as soon a license comes I go get my la101


Addz I’d just bolt it to the floor and have a gap like I do, but would start a thread to try get more info, maybe with some photos so people can see what you mean and give you a hand

How big have you got your gap dagda the rest of the floor is level it's just all the corners. I just would have much preferred bolting it to the ground and wall but the floor will be fine its pretty tucked away in a locked cubboard with storage boxes surrounding it. It's gunna be a nightmare come storage inspection time unlocking 2 padlocks to the cupboard then moving all the boxes out to final be able to get to the safe hahah

My wife is somewhere between me and you so I'll update when she gets her email

As for your safe mine is only bolted to the floor. The is what the brochure form Qld Police says:

'it must be securely fixed to the frame or floor of a
permanent building'

I got a PTA back at lunchtime today that I put in lunchtime yesterday (sunday). Thats right, the PTA took less than 1 business day to get approved.Crazy.

Also, I noticed that the PTA online form process may have changed. I'm pretty sure the last time I put one in a month or so ago it said they would fax it to the dealer. Now it says they will email it. Weapons licensing coming into the 2000's!!!!
