There's quite a catalogue of incidents showing you're not alone - emphasising the need to take all possible precautions when using spudguns.

Zeus wrote:LoveableAirGuns, I'm seconding Inonickname's post, you NEED to do a basic firearms safety course, I presume you're in Australia, if you're over 12 you can attend the 2 hour course required to get a license.

It's completely free, you get a certificate, and you can get a firearms license at any time. I can see you were never taught that if you have ANY doubt, you NEVER discharge any arms.

Sorry for the rage post, but people not knowing the very basics of projectile launcher safety really annoys me.

i live in australia too and you its not so easy getting a firearms license , you need 6 months experience at a club and to join the SSAA... im currently going through mine oh and a police clearance

I think thats just for handguns or your state, because all i needed was to fill out the form get a mental state examination/report and have a person you have know for 5years other than your family sign a form and fill it some details. then i think it was 2 months later they sent back my licence, then i can go pick a gun then the gun shop sends in a form the cops review the gun takes about a week then if they accepted it you can go pick it up.

It depends on the class of license, class A and B are easy, H is a bit harder as you need to be part of an SSAA approved pistol club.

Class C is very difficult, impossible for non-farmers. Fortunatley I'll be in the position to get a class C soon.

For those unaware, a class C gets you one semi auto rimfire<sup>1</sup> with a magazine or clip capacity of no more than ten rounds, it also gets you one pump/semi auto shotgun with a 5 round magazine.

So you Americans, consider youself lucky. You can walk into a gun store, get a quick background check, and walk out with a 10/22.

<sup>1</sup> Rimfire is only .22 CB, BB, Short, Long, Extra Long, LR and Magnum. No semi .17HMR/HM2 for us either.

Edit: Stuffed up the superscript tags.
