The Supreme Court in Brisbane heard Philip Bruce Main refused to answer questions about his association with aspects of the drug trade and also who had shot him when brought before an Australian CrimeCommission inquiry.
Main, 38, pleaded guilty to trafficking in methylamphetamine between November 2008 and October 2009.

Prosecutor Petrina Colhessey said Main had a history of violent offences including when he was a security officer at anightclub and threw a patron off a four metre high balcony.
Ms Clohessey said Main had also assaulted police who went to the Gold Coast hospital to interview him after he went to casualty with a gunshot wound.
She said Main had a further conviction for assaulting a man who owed a large drug debt to the Finks motorcycle club.
Ms Clohessey detailed how Main had been caught in a undercoveroperation by Queensland police and the ACC who were looking at links between motorcycle gangs, in particular the Finks, and drug distribution.
She said Main twice sold methylamphetamines to an undercover officer and a check of Main's finances showed he had unaccounted for income of $17,000 in a year.
