You could try and import some from NZ by buying them of www.trademe.co.nz which is like eBay if you don't know it.

Illegal in all states,you could be looking at upto $5000 fine and possible prison time.So weigh it up,go without or risk it.

And it is common belief that "Sniper Bolt Action" Airsoft weapons are legal to own in QLD,but the truth is very far from that.

Customs aren't stupid, they x-ray packages.

That pen would barely penetrate a single sheet of paper, it's really not worth the risk. Plus running around skrimishing with pens would be. Well, ghey. You're better off making a couple of low pressure strafers.

Ive heard they are a group that are trying to bring airsoft into aussie legally. Maybe if they have enough members and petitions then the laws may change, i dont know but what have you got to lose?

well by luck i managed to get a Tokyo MArui Glock 18c Airsoft into Australia from Japan, but it is underpowered compared to an expensive gas airsoft pistol.But it still Hauls ARSE!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: .
I just chucked it in my baggage and if they asked a question about it i'd say, "oh i didn't know these toys were illegal in Australia, oh i'm sorry you can't handle toys."

@experiment-U2, Glove guns are hella innacurate, fun, but innacurate.

YaY! APEC long-Weekend off! :D
