A warning to all Australian spudders.

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 6:06 am

I'm speaking behalf of my good mate. All of you know him as RNA Duelers. This is a warning to every country to that has spudguns of any shape and form, banned and illegal.

RNA's mate just got caught by the police with a simple golf ball gun. His mate is now up for up to 10 years in prison. I just lathed a o-ringed aluminium piston for my 600psi gun and after I found out, calling it quits is the best idea. Tomorrow I'm giving away every fitting I have. My mate is a plumber so I'm sure he can use the fittings. It's just not worth ruining my life. Time to take up a new hobby...

Be careful!

Mitch.

:shock:

How did he get caught with one? I seriously hope he doesn't get a custody sentence for playing with a spudgun.

I have no idea. I just heard it from RNA. He's completely stopped coming on here ever since he found out so I brought up this announcment on his behalf. It's scary stuff...

I think it really depends on the context in which he was caught. There's a difference between firing golfballs into and empty desert and firing them at your neighbours car, do you know more of the situation?

JSR The cops tried to put me in juvy for having them. I only got off for acting like I didnt know and saying it was for a school project. Im kinda on the down low so I go out into the bush on a private property to shoot mine.

Raise your horns if you love metal.
spudgunning is like sex, once you've tasted, you can't wait til next time.

I think thats just a bunch of CRAP!!! For a air gun! Its not like he or we as a comunity are killing or hurting anybody or animals. Making criminals out of young people with a fun pass time. Baseball bats can inflect just as much dammage as a spudgun, but bats are not banned. :angry4: :brave:

Agreed, to an extent. But the guy knew what he was getting in to when he started the hobby. He knew they were illegal when he built one. It's sort of like driving a car and speeding. You know it's wrong but you still do it.

i can't stand the cops anymore! to say it out right i HATE them!

that makes me want to call them and tell i have a homemade nailgun i am building a house with and look if they gets here.

strange that i as a "kid" can walk in a hardware store and buy HILTI smokeless cartriges that i play with..

fork the cops! (when it comes to spudguns that is)

BTW does RNA have a msn or something that i can reach him on?

COPS WOULD BE TRANCELATED TO SPUDING LAW HERE!!

sorry to the ones that did misunderstand ^ that

If its illegal in Aussie then I think its as illegal in Singapore. After all, we do have extremely tight arms laws. *sigh* and I was gonna start building a new gun after so long. :(

SpudFarm: I think you should consider reevaluation of your post. Obviously, you fail to realize that cops do not make the law; they only enforce it.

Aye it's not the cops fault, they get to much crap...


It's unfortunate that there are such tight arms laws in Australia, but it is a weebit safer down there no?

i would hate to have a run in with the cops over spudguns (or anything) so i'm careful when i use them, and i only shoot them properly when i'm at my grandpa's because they have a large garden.

I cant take someones head off at 100yds with a baseball bat...

here in the US we have gun laws, requiring you to register guns when you purchase them, and when they are sold. Making something that can cause as much if not more destruction has good reason to be illegal... I dont think guns should be illegal too though...

Wow that sucks. I think I can face a $4000 fine and/or 6 months in prison. So i'm slightly better off :)

If he was caught in a public place with it, where there are other people around, I say fair enough on the police confiscating the 'weapon' and giving him a fine. But a jail term is ridiculous unless he caused harm.

If he was on his own private property and he was only destroying his own property or not firing outside his property when the cops caught him, I say anything more then a confiscation and maybe a small hundred dollar fine would be enough.
