  • Victorian Storage requirements

    Just want to check something.

    I recently bought a plastic Spika Dry storage ammo box that is lockable. The regs say that any cartridge ammunition must be stored in a locked container. Does anyone know if the construction of the container is checked etc? Will my plastic box be ok?

    A lockable plastic box is OK in Victoria -for Ammo.

    Does it need to be secured to anything?

      Nope; as long as it's lockable your good to go plastic & all, as crazy as it may seem.

      I enquired with FAR recently as to whether a sealed steel tin of milsurp ammunition would be OK to store as it is & was told to either fit a lock to it or store it in a lockable plastic/wooden box; so a sturdy steel container which requires specialist cutting tools to open is not to code, but a flimsy plastic box which can by broken open with a screw-driver (or even just smashed to pieces by throwing it against a hard surface) is fine so long as it has a tiny $2 padlock fitted.

      Just keep the firearm out of sight. I just put mine behind the front seat of my ute.....unloaded...and no passenger can access them. That will do. Don't put ammunition in the glove box.
