Forbes Wholesale...
  The company has been trading in one form or another since 1983 and continues to trade in much the same area of business, ie the import and distribution of firearms & accessories, mostly for target shooters and black powder enthusiasts.
  We supply and support our products to the wholesale market, licensed gun dealers and retail to end users.
  All sales of firearms are subject to applicable State and Federal laws, there is no compromise on this point. Sale of firearms within Victoria may only take place from our licensed premises or at venues where we have a permit to operate away from the licensed premises.
  Interstate firearm sales (other than at Arms Fairs where we have the relevant Permits) can only be delivered via a Licensed Gun Dealer, we will supply shooters but must deliver to a dealer in your area.
  For firearm accessories we will generally deliver via post direct to you although we have stockists in many parts of Australia, see
stockists for a comprehensive list.
  We are able to export our product range without Australian taxes, all firearm exports require an Export Permit from the Australian Defence Department under the Waasenaar Convention (this covers such stuff as military & nuclear weapons, you know, the agreements to stop Saddam Hussein from buying muzzle loaders from us etc, gross overkill for most of what we sell but required).

To get this Permit usually requires an Import Permit issued by the relevant authorities in your country, inquire for advice locally as we don't have access to the required information for many countries.

Performance when it counts, that is our motto here at Clearidge Optics. We strive to make sure our products meet the high standards that every sport person expects and deserves. Here at Clearidge Optics, we are not only business men and women, but hunters and shooters just like you.

Clearidge Optics will continue to grow and expand to provide the highest quality, most dependable sports optics that will perform when it counts!


The Federation of Hunting Clubs came into being in November 1996, after the then Shooters Party MLC, John Tingle, pointed out to Premier Carr that some 90% of all firearms licenses were taken out for the purpose of hunting.      He was able to persuade the Premier that the incoming firearms laws would disadvantage these people – especially the large  number of ethnic groups, who were, basically the only firearms owners organised into hunting clubs, because hunting clubs would not be recognised.

The Legislation was amended in November 1996, even before it had been proclaimed, to recognise membership of a hunting club as a “genuine reason” for a firearm licence.

The Shooters Party encouraged and helped organise the formation of hunting clubs in many part of NSW, and formed them into the Federation of Hunting Clubs, which is a recognised umbrella group under the Firearms Regulations.    The Clubs are able to organise insurance, register members’ hunting activities for justification of the firearm licence, and most provide training meets, including sighting in facilities, trophy dressing and safe hunting.

The Federation is affiliated with and supported the Shooters Party, and is represented on the NSW Game Council

Longshot Shooting Supplies...

Is a new Importer of high end rifle Chassis and equipment, these include XLR chassis systems and Hart Barrels. We are also proud to be the DISTRIBUTER for Ruger Rifle Chassis. Other chassis we use are Whiskey 3 Chassis, Accuracy International and MDT.

This Brisbane based business is designed to supply hunters and shooters of all levels with the right tools to make that long shot just that little bit easier.

We use Stiller and Remington 700 Actions in our rifle builds with Rifle Basix and Timney Triggers. We also use TSE Barrels. TSE is widely recognised as one of Australia’s Premier Barrel makers.

Personally I enlisted in the military in 2000 and discharged in 2010 after several deployments. In that time I completed the sniper course and a number of LR courses down Sth. I've trained and competed in tactical LR and short range competitions in Australia and the UK. My intentions with LSS is not only to make quality gear available but help people use that gear and better understand it, so in the field you can be confident in making that first round count and take down that once in a lifetime stag, OR STEELY.....

I look forward to chatting with you guys and eventually meeting some of you.

The Huntsman Aus business model is aimed at keeping overheads low and passing the savings to the shooter. The concept means we don’t operate a large “high traffic” retail space. The business consists of a central showroom and storage facility, supported by secondary distribution warehouses. The Townsville storage site and showroom is licensed under Queensland Firearms legislation.

All Huntsman staff are keen shooters and hunters. Almost all of the staff are Veterans. Each member draws on unique military, industry, and product experience. Most importantly we maintain our sense of humour and enjoy ourselves, we understand there is much yet to learn and we are always looking to increase our knowledge.

Our product offerings are tailored toward serious sporting and Government and other occupational shooters. We supply military snipers, police marksman, and select government buyers. Some niche products are sourced primarily for our Government customers. This allows us to offer shooting enthusiasts some of the world’s most advanced precision shooting accessories, aids, or equipment. Regardless if you are paper punching at 200 yards, stalking a trophy Sambar, or a small team member deploying into harms way, we offer the best available equipment to contribute toward your success.

The Australian Shooters  and Fishers Party...

The Australian Shooters and Fishers Party (ASFP) hopes to repeat the success of its New South Wales counterpart, in the Federal election on November 24 2007.

The NSW Shooters Party doubled its representation in the Upper House of the State Parliament in the election in March this year.

The upcoming Federal election gives sporting shooters, anglers and 4WDers a new opportunity to strengthen their political voice and protect their sporting and recreational activities from the threat of the extreme Greens.

The ASFP has teamed up with the Australian Fishing and Lifestyle Party (AFLP) because the two groups share many common objectives, including a strong opposition to the Greens’ idealistic, skewed and dangerous vision for the future.

In Queensland, ASFP preferences will be directed towards the AFLP and other like-minded groups such as the Christian Democratic Party, which are opposed to the Greens’ irrational attitude towards the shooting sports and legal firearm ownership, as well as usage of state forests and marine parks
