Australian Airsoft Media

See. Now this is the media attention we need in Canada. By the sounds of the video It looks like these guys are having to put up with the same crap we are here.

Um, that's New Zealand. Airsoft is completely illegal in Australia.

Edit: To be accurate, that should read, "Airsofting is completely illegal in Australia."

No,
Because this is not a valid reason under the “Firearms Act”.
Where as we can legally own AND legally play.

Chairsofting is no fun no matter how many legal guns you own.

This was posted a long long time ago.

NZ has restrictions on what they can import (namely no full auto) but airsoft is otherwise considered Airguns there, and anyone 18+ (or 16+ with a license) can buy/import them.

It's very much not the same as in Canada.

no not the same of course but calling it completely illegal there or here is both false. that was my point.

Sorry then, I'll change that.

Airsofting the activity is illegal in Australia. Transfering and owning airsoft guns is not.
