The accused was given one week.
She will be transferred to the prison should she fail to obtain bail within the specified time.
Her trial is set for April 19.
It is alleged that the Hatton resident imported the 9-millimetre pistol and gave it to Kurt Michael, a manager of a large supermarket at Perry Bay, between March 9, 2017, and January 20, 2018.

He was convicted and fined $20,000.
