When the The Long Range Shooting Club Mildura was started, we worked with Licensing and Regulation Division Victoria to provide genuine reason to be able to own a 50BMG rifle in Victoria.
The 50 BMG rifle are only to be used for target shooting. This is where our association with the Fifty Caliber Shooters Association of American started. With permission of the FCSA, we started running and hosting FCSA match events. From here we were then able to submit a proposal with LRD that provided a genuine reason to own a 50 BMG in Victoria.
