Whoops, I must be out of touch as one of the few Australians that voted for The Shooters Party in the Senate last election.
Firearms act 1996 Section 3 wrote:
firearm means any device, whether or not assembled or in parts and whether or
not operable or complete or temporarily or permanently inoperable or
(a) which is designed or adapted to discharge shot or a bullet or other
missile by the expansion of gases produced in the device by the
ignition of strongly combustible materials or by compressed air or
other gases, whether stored in the device in pressurised containers or
produced in the device by mechanical means...
I'm not an expert on law.
My interpretation of this passage is that the way that Nerf is played, we are specifically using "dart" projectiles that in no way have any potential stored energy inside them (such as explosions and what not). It's one to consider when you have active forums members such as Talio who place an emphasis on how we call our ammunition, calling out those who use the term "bullets".
This in effect nullifies this argument important to us
... by compressed air or other gases, whether stored in the device in pressurised containers or produced in the device by mechanical means...
Feel free to question my judgement as I am also curious.
