a firearm is classified as a object which is able to fire a projectile using a gas or spring or some way of lauching the projectile that could case harm. so technically a nerf gun becomes a firearm acording to the defintion of the law, so when you stick a traditional stefan that has some metal in it and is poking out of the hot glue, but don't tell them that. So stick with standard darts or informers' darts. according to the law a powerhead is a firearm, a explosive tool [a nail gun that uses a .22blank] is a firearm, so we tread a very thin line in Australia when it comes to nerf so don't shoot any police with your singled 4b using stefans that have been improperly made and we should be good.
Yep, probably time you checked a few of your references. A combustion "nail gun" is not classed as a firearm
- as I'm sure a few member's that are chippies will attest to.
I think you're confused with:"A powder-actuated tool (often called a "Hilti gun" or a "Ramset gun" after their manufacturing companies) is a nail gun used in construction and manufacturing to join materials to hard substrates such as steel and concrete. Known as "direct fastening", this technology relies on a controlled explosion created by small chemical propellant charge, similar to the process that discharges a firearm."
Your definition of a firearm is a fair way off too."5. A toy firearm that is not designed to fire metallic projectiles is not included in the
definition of "firearm" in the Act unless, in the Registrar’s opinion, it should be regulated as a
firearm under the Act and is the subject of a declaration to that effect by the Registrar published in
Your advice is absurd..." we tread a very thin line in Australia when it comes to nerf so don't shoot any police with your singled 4b using stefans that have been improperly made and we should be good. "
If you possessed any common sense whatsoever, you wouldn't point anything resembling a weapon towards a police officer. I'm also curious as to your theory that it would be okay to shoot a police officer with properly made stefans?!?
And, yeh, I'm not only coming from a fair bit of experience with NERF. I've spent quite a considerable amount of time as a competitive local SSAA member, and spent my childhood on a farm, where pest eradication was an important part of everyday life.
Seriously - thanks for attempting to contribute. But, we need facts, not opinions.
On-topic - we have had a thread for over 12 months outlining Australian customs laws with importing NERF related paraphenalia, laser diode's, imitation firearms etc etc. But, due to the ever-changing attitude of our laws, it just seemed easier for people to research themselves, so they had the most up-to-date information available.
Camo - nice work mate, but as mentioned above, the laws change that often, that making this a sticky will only give people a false sense of what is legal. Maybe edit the OP to identify the ever-changing laws, and that people should follow the link, and check for the most recent definition/prohibited articles.
