New Zeland? That news video was Australian. (if thats what your talking about)

About that video, do you think we could ever get together with a cam corder, make a video that educates and send it in to a major news station? or sticking to "being invisible" and having the chance of being found out better?

You can't play in australia? I thought the rule was that the guns had to be semi auto so they converted their EAG's to semi?

EDIT

Holy shit, your right! it is NZ, my bad.

Making a video and sending it into a even a minor news outlet would be most unwise.

News outlets are not generally looking for good news to report.

Can you put that plan into action now instead of later?

But airsoft is banned there!

Personally, I don't find that milsim at all. They won't ban paintball here, so if worst comes to worst, I'd milsim a paintball gun.

Or we could just all buy paintball BBs and play the 'We're paintballers" until this blows over.

airsoft is resticted in australia NOT banned you need the proper Licence,
CAT A: Bolt Action rifles
CAT C: Shotguns
CAT D: Semi-automatic weapons (*including semi-auto replicas that look like they have been designed for a military purpose)
CAT H: Handguns (including semi-auto)
CAT R: Fully-automatic weapons (*including auto replicas that look like they have been designed for a military purpose)

*This means that even if the original weapon was designed without a military application in mind, if it can reasonably be mistaken for a modern military weapon of that type, then it is considered as such.

info from QLD police in regards to the law as applicable to Airsoft Weapons.

Airsoft is legalized in Australia now. Check this site.

On the side of putting a disclaimer, I totally agree on that.

You don't need to be an ASA financial member - or even in Australia for that matter! So long as your pics have something to do with airsoft feel free to post them here. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we would be particularly interested in seeing some more pics from "Sir Toby" our Denmark connection.
This guy is all over! :lol:
