Section 15(2)(b)(ii) of the Firearms Act 1996 provides that persons who are, at the time of application for a General Category Handgun Licence with the reason of target shooting, the holder of a licence in another State or Territory that authorises the possession, carriage or use of handguns for the reason of target shooting, do not need to apply for a Probationary Permit and can make an application for a licence immediately. Evidence of the interstate licence must be provided at the time of application. These persons are also authorised [pursuant to s.187(2)] to posses, carry and use any handguns they were authorised to possess interstate for a period of 7 days after notifying the Chief Commissioner of Police (CCP) that they intend to permanently reside in Victoria. Furthermore, persons who apply for a General Category Handgun Licence within this 7 day period are able to continue to possess, carry or use any such handgun until the outcome of the application is determined.
