    Bound too of happened eventually ...... ​​​​​​ look like the real deal when numptys repaint them. So Joe blow can't tell the difference.

    The powers to be just change the game when it suits.

    I remember when we had too scale cap guns etc and no one batted a eyelid, but in today's world..... The world's gone bonkers.

    Don't care much for the toys, but what ever flaots ones goat. Real ones are better anyway lol

      Check out the conditions you must follow to hand them in.
      Magazine removed, battery removed, stock if possible and concealed to not cause concern.

      They sound like a very dangerous toy.

      Never heard how the blokes were going in court, fighting the serious illegal firearms charges for selling them in NSW

        Those blokes in NSW were cleared. A bit of bureaucratic bungling from NSWPOL about the case too.


        Part of me is laughing like a hyena that toys will now be considered a dangerous weapon. The more that the authorities do it, the more likely they water down the laws until the legislation means bugger all.

          Good to hear they got off.

          I wonder if spud guns made a comeback and were classed A, would the gel blasters have to be class C or D?

            yeh this pissed me of at first like most. but then i realised that this will increase the number of licenced shooters in the state and i am sure that many of them will think well screw this if i have to go through all this bs i might as well get some real bang sticks and it may just backfire a little on sapol . who knows...pd.

              I had to look it up. Paintball guns... Bloody hell haven't they changed over the years.

              Is the image in the SA POL poster a 'gel blaster'. If so, then all this 'Tactical Timmy' shit has well and truly brought them undone and up that road... You can be guaranteed some 'arse clown' would eventually get shot playing 'gang-bangers' in their lowered Toyota Supra, igniting some sort of coroners inquiry.

              Paintball is fun but looking at how far it's gone in the fashion department. It's become a wanna-be 'strop fes'... Pretty cringe worthy.

              What classification would they come under?


              Just rigged up four rods got a boat booked and off to take the young fella fishing. He'd better keep that 'Aay Kay' of his stashed under the his bed... It's got a detachable mag even though it only makes that 'drive mum mad' noise.

                .

                Prebloodycisely , All this tactical look alike and Rambo crap has done untold damage to LAFO as well as the spin off damage to hunters etc it` infuriating to say the least.
                Hijacked by all and sundry with an axe to grind ...environmentalists ....grrrreeeen slime.......and a complicit media who generally hates our guts.......

                Another rule for the public serpents to wring some more control from and get paid to do it as well as with our tax $$$ as well as create more jobs for some slack arse to do it all from the comfort of an office....complete with all its rules and safe guards.

                The kids swallow it all the fun side of things and yes that`s fine but eventually we are brought down by our own actions.

                Bring back Tom Mix and his horse Cement and pop guns and lets all wind the clock back 70 odd years when kids could play and people could just get on with their lives and use some common sense.....OHHHH `ang abart.....he died .......

                PS : naturally if you F&^%$ed up with your TOY then the next thing was a boot up the arse by billy's dad if your own dad missed your stupid..... followed by do it again and I will take the fuc^%$# thing away
                PSS : kids valued their toys back then ,,especially if it was the only one you had or you couldn`t buy one ,so made your own it had even more value.
                Sort of like a Junior Work ethic lesson for kids......
                That eventually carried over into adult life .....in most cases with a good adult mentor driving it.
                NOT todays mentors Academics and bloody Entertainment Media and laws made to follow to control the stupid.

                Whether we fail as parents or simply allow the system to take over our duty is debatable but its vital that strong parental guidance and leading by example has never been more important than today......If you can keep up.

                Don’t poke the snake, walk around it and come back later with a double-barrelled shotgun and blow its [email protected]#!ing head off!.

                Australia in future, the outcome is the same, a bloody dictatorship run on the whims of a very few ego-centric pathological elitists.

                  We should have fought the appearance law as it was always going to go bad for us and they can use it for anything with no proper law for them to use.
                  That was its purpose.
                  They could add a little amendment and ban chassis rifles if they wanted and thought the city antis would vote their way.

                  As they are just a toy and prob don't even need PPE like in paintball, the manufacturers should have just made an Aussie nanny-state model to get around it like the real gun makers with straight pulls and semis with a little catch, lock mechanism, love it.
                  All they had to do is put a biggish orange suppressor on the barrel and label "not real gun" or "toy gun".

                  Looking at them, the real look would have been part of the marketing.

                  Must have a look at how paintball guns have evolved as they were pretty wild years back but looked more si-fy than AK

                          I think they just banned them outwrite or the sale of them under NSW looks laws and then charged a few little shop blokes for selling illegal firearms.

                            Strange that the Customs Fed's let them into the Country after inspection and possibly no need for the States to be advised, because maybe they are classified as toys to the Feds.
                            The TRUTH is out there,

                              Here in W.A. there is movement afoot to get airsoft recognised the same as paintball - using the paintball licensing regime as a template.
                              When that happens, the gel slingers will probably be next next in line.
