The National Shooting Council leads the fight in legal and political battles against bad gun laws. We’re doing what no-one else has been able to do for the shooting sports – and we’ve got the results to show it.

In the past 2 years we’ve launched nearly 30 legal actions, helped shooters work out who to vote for at state and territory elections and had issues of importance published in the major media.

Shotgun, pistol, rifle. We cover the lot.

The National Shooting Council is Australia’s peak political and lobbying group for shooters and shooting organisations who are sick and tired of the political attacks on what we do.

The Council is led by people with significant political experience from both sides of the political spectrum – and with track records showing what can be done when the right people come together.


We support candidates at elections who support the shooting sports, and oppose those who want to bring in more restrictions.


We advocate on your behalf for better laws and more resources to help you keep shooting.  We liaise extensively with the media.
