Fingers crossed for sure,the changes in laws could go either way...Hope it's good for us spudders.Also so I can get an Airsoft gun,as they look fun as heck.

Fingers crossed.


Ohh does anyone else have some Solid evidence about laws in other states as I would like to inform people about the laws all through out Australia.

in NSW its illeagal to even have pneumatics......but is it legal if you keep your spudgun in your own property because a cop did say that it was leagal in an unpleasant situation, but i dont know if what he said came out wrong and he said that by ......im going to ask my friends dad who lives down the road, hes a cop (sergent)......hopfully he will let me keep making spudguns in exeption that i dont take it out in public.

We can only hope that spud guns get sweept under the rug or even buried in some obscure classification that can't be pin pointed on any paticular spud gun. It has happened befor we can only hope it happens again.

Twitch,Ya know here is an idea.Probably won't work but its worth a shot.Australia has a major rabbit problem does it not?And since they are an invasive species the cops(and game wardens) may not have a problem giving you a license under the pretence of using the cannon for rabbit hunting.Agree to use marbles since they pose no threat real threat to humans (compared to nail darts). Marbles are plenty to kill rabbits.You may get your license and dinner.I may be totally off,sorry if I am.Good luck on the licenses fella's.

RSPCA (animal crulty mob) would have a problem with it. It's ok to shoot em with bullets but not marbles! Plus you have to apply for a seperate licence that allows you to kull rabbits in your area. The you have to prove that your using the carcuses for some worth while use you can't just leave em where they drop. Last time I cheaked the local butcher was paying $5 per rabbit and the fur mob was only paying 50c for the hides.
So in theory you could make some dollars but you have to report to the rangers every week. Good thorght but the authoritys over here would'nt like it one bit.

O dang,That is strict just to kill a nusience.I pay 5 bucks to get a county hunting license. I shoot the junk out of the little buggers.That's funny that you can't shoot them w/ marbles.A rabbit is about the easiest thing to kill.Throw a stick at them and they die. :D Well sorry i wasted ya'lls time I figured I'd try and help.In Kenya(where I'll be living soon) they let ya kill rabbits no problem.
