There is a big difference between the different states, W.A. Used to be the strictest but now it is the easiest. I have a deact mg42, a replica mp40, and a deact 303 none of which require a licence here and none of which have to be kept in fun safes. I also have a K98 and an 1851 colt navy revolver, both of which are fully working and must be kept in my gun safe. I have the necessary licences for these two.
