General Questions:


Q. Wasn't there originally a $10 annual registration fee?


A. Yes.  At the launch of the website there was an annual $10 subscription fee to cover administrative costs and the annual major prize giveaways.  Unfortunately we hit a technical problem with the subscription page and only 25% of members ended up being correctly subscribed.  The easiest way for us to correct this was to simply scrap the subscription payment so that all members enjoyed the same benefits.

Q. Is Gun Depot PTY LTD a licensed firearm dealer?

A. No... we are not licensed firearm dealers and we do not store or handle the transfer of firearms.  There is some confusing information out there about who can advertise firearms on the internet.  Rest assured that we take our business seriously and have consulted with the relevant authorities in regards to this matter.  Being based in Victoria, Australia, we are required to comply with the rules and regulations set forward by the Victorian Police Licensing & Regulation Division.  This requires that we:

1.  Advertise only.

2.  Are not involved in transferring firearms between buyers and sellers.

3.  Each firearm transaction goes through a Licensed Firearms Dealer

4.  Each advertisement on the website will include the details of a Licensed Firearms Dealer (including their Firearm Dealers License number) who will facilitate the sale/transaction of the firearm/s.


Q. Why aren’t sellers firearm license number displayed on listings?


A. We take your personal security very seriously.  Although we require that any person who lists a firearm for sale includes their firearm license number, we do not display this information on the listing.  We also don't recommend that you post your personal contact phone number on listings.  This however is totally up to you.  We understand that for some people it's easier to be contacted by phone rather then email.

Incorrect: MY Username
Correct: MY-Username

Or, it says that the username selected is already in use.

Usernames are unique. Two users cannot share the same username. If you get a notice during registration that your username is already in use, you will need to select a different username.
