Finally approved for my crossbow license

133 days since I submitted my application, 126 since I submitted the “additional” paperwork they required - which they already had - I finally have an email stating my crossbow license has been approved.

I did the Category M (crossbows) safety course on the 2nd of July, got the certificate of attainment on the 7th and submitted it on that night. I’d really love to know what took so long, but given that any question to Queensland Police Weapons Licensing end in ridiculous hand-wringing and misinformation, I’m just over it.

Only a few more weeks until they print the card and send it to me, I guess. Good thing I’m not a new shooter and have already got three other licenses they can check against, hey?
