I work at the international airport here in Perth and during the last couple of months i have seen a massive amount of Nerf related products come through our screening room. This is very disturbing for me because all Nerf blasters come under the heading of "Prohibited Items", as they resemble something that may be identified by another person as a real weapon.
Now most of the Nerf community is sensible, we all understand the outcomes of mistreating our blasters and how we use them in public. I personally have confiscated these following items in the last month.
multiple recons (i lost count)
2 raiders (one stock one heavily modified including all black paint)
Multiple buzz bee double shot shotguns
buzz bee tek3
buzz bee tek6
and some no name branded items.
All these items are confiscated and destroyed by the Australian Federal Police. Pleasse be aware that these items (as much as we love them) can not be taken through any airport in Australia as cabin baggage. Check you state laws they should be able to go in your check in baggage. Alot of these items confiscated are brand new in their box's intended as xmas presents. There are no excuses, they will all be confiscated with no renumeration.
I thought i would bring this to everyone's attention as i hate to see good blasters go to waste
Thankyou and merry xmas and a happy new year to all Nerfers everywhere.
