QLD PTA before choosing the rifle

Post by RunRabbit » 25 May 2019, 7:37 am

Hi All,

I've just applied for my A&B licence and I'm going to submit my PTA for a .22lr & .223.
I have pretty much chosen my rifles but I was hoping that I can just apply for the PTAs without having to choose the dealer that I will buy them through. Is that possible?

I was told over the phone that I just need to know the caliber and action but now that I'm filling in the online form, the field to put in the dealer licence number is mandatory.

Is there a way that I can get the PTA without it?

Yes there is ways to do it. (so ignore people's posts that don't know or haven't done it before)

2 ways;

Do it online put a dealer then call them up and tell them you would like it changed to "Any QLD dealer" as the dealer hasn't got the firearm I was looking to purchase anymore.

Or do a manual paper permit and fill it all in tick "QLD dealer" box then put "Any QLD dealer" in where it asks for licence number.

These ways have worked for me in the past so i know from experience. (Unless things have changed lately) Here's a link for the paper PTA form too, Hope this helps

Thanks for the info! I might give them a call to confirm before I do it. I'll see if they allow it online too.

I've had a look at the Form 28 PTA, and it wants a lot of information about the 'Disposer', can this mostly be left uncompleted if "Any QLD dealer" is entered into the license number field?
And for the Weapons Details section, clearly category is needed but how much more detail needs to be included?


Any advice appreciated.

Category A or B
Type: rimfire, centre fire, shotgun, air rifle etc
Action: bolt, pump, lever, revolver, break or air
Calibre: 22lr, 223 or 12g etc
Hope this helps.

I called them and I was told that I really should put the dealer on there and if I change my mind, just submit it for an amendment. The lady was helpful and insinuated that if I didn't nominate a dealer then they wouldn't approve it.

I submitted it with my local dealer as the vendor and if I need to change it then I can for a small fee.

How long do you have to wait before its approved again if one wants to change the dealer.
I have an application in nominating one dealer , but I am now thinking dealer B has a better deal.
So I have to wait till the PTA gets here then send it back for ammendment. Is that how it works?

The more simple and straightforward you make things by working within the rules of the system the less problems you’re likely to have . Find a dealer with the firearm you want , or order it in through that dealer and it’s straightforward with no phone calls to licensing or grey areas . Use the KISS system
