Negating the possibility of any kind of firearm; I'd probably go with a large club of some kind. Aluminum softball bats are pretty good.

Odd as it may seem a fire extinguisher is a surprisingly effective tool Spray someone in the face, or all around them, and it sucks the oxygen away from them. Inhaling most types of fire extinguisher material can send someone to their knees gasping for breather rather fast. It's easy and quick to deploy, it covers a large distance in a small amount of time, it can blanket a room and allow you the chance to run away, etc.

You had "A safe inspection"?????

What exactly does that mean? What does it entail? How often can/does this happen?????

It means the police come to inspect your safe and the firearms within it.

It happens as often, and whenever, the police want it to happen. No warrant required.

its part of the Australian firearms laws and as SamboRoberts stated whenever they feel like it

But it happens almost every time you put in a PTA(Permit to acquire)....yes we have to apply for every additional firearm we want to own...

they are "meant" to check every time you apply however that would mean about ten inspections a year just for me as i like to buy a cheap rifle play with it then sell......trying to make a small $ every time

Part of the particular state's or territory's firearms laws.

The federal government is prohibited by the Constitution from enacting firearms laws.

Which I find both fortunate and frustrating.

I'd love consistency with the laws across the nation, but by the same token I want accountability just in case of another knee jerk reaction..

Yes, but in Queensland, you can store firearms in a timber safe.

Yet a collector mate of mine had a double brick windowless room, back to base alarm, bar reinforced walls, plate metal ceiling and a vault door and the licencing branch decided it wasn't up to scratch. He ended up having to fill it with commercial safes (60 something mostly U/S rifles and shotties).

At least I know where I want to be when the bomb drops

Here in NSW at least the cops have to make an apointment with you to inspect your firearm security, they cant just rock up and barg in. If they turn up un anouced and want to see your guns, dont let them in without a warent. Different situation if your licence has been revocked, then they will turn up un anouced and demand to take you guns, but they are still not alowd in the house without a licence, you can make them wait at the door and hand them the guns. You guys should be more aware of your rights and dont just roll over to let the cops scratch your belly any time they want. the laws are bad enough without makeing them harder on your self.

Definitely. That is why the xbow (Excalibur) is my main weapon of choice these days..has enough power to take down any animal on the planet and it's silent...makes a lot more sense than a rifle in many cases, esp those where a rifle isn't always easy to obtain...

Mate, Cross bows and Air Rifles DEFINITELY need a firearms licence lol.

Bows can be bought and owned when ever you want, but yeh, Air Rifles fall under A & B Category, and I don't even know what you need for a crossbow, but I am pretty sure its even harder to get than a A & B firearms licence.

I think you can get crossbows in WA without a license

Air rifles do need license is all states though.

Unless you can immediately get it into their eyes, they have enough time to disembowel you with a spoon before it takes effect.

I take it you have never seen it used!
And hope like hell it aint ever used on you!
It is almost instant in effects, it splash's and vapourises on impact.
Very similiar to high pressure steam burns!


And like I said EVIL, WICKED, MEAN and NASTY!!!!!
