The Shooters Union has established a branch in South Australia, adding to its activities in NSW, Queensland and Tasmania.

The Shooters Union is a not-for-profit organisation that fights for positive change in firearms legislation around Australia, with a growing membership of more than 10,000.

The move will be a boost for SA shooters, who often bear the brunt of excessively restrictive laws and often controversial decisions of the SA Police Firearms Branch.

Peter Heggie, the proprietor of The Gunnery firearms dealership and shooting range in Adelaide, has been appointed as the Shooters Union’s official SA representative.

“We want to make sure shooters as a whole are looked after – and currently they’re not, but that is changing now,” Peter said.

“I want to achieve fairness for shooters, and to give South Australian shooters an alternative that is transparent and not working behind closed doors.”

Shooters Union Australia president Graham Park praised the organisation’s new representative. “Peter is passionate, dedicated, knowledgeable and has been part of the South Australian shooting community for many years,” he said.

“He believes in a fair go for shooters and making sure their voices are heard.”

In Queensland, the Shooters Union was very active during the recent state elections, where it put its support behind the Katter’s Australia Party, an actively pro-firearms party.

In NSW it has renewed its efforts with the appointment of Craig Golding as the state’s coordinator.
