I think game numbers here higher yes, even per population. Pigs and roos each outnumber humans, plus worlds largest wild populations of horses, goats, wild cattle, donkeys, camels. I think NZ wins for Deer though.

I think its a moot point really, there is abundant game in both countries. Good luck every eradicating goats, possums,rabbits, hares, deer and pigs in NZ - even post event.

Drifting back on topic. .. is there any clauses to allow for private collection of body armour perhaps? Outside of security use, just as part of a historical militaria collection perhaps?

The Kelly gang doning armor and going head to head with the cops in the 1880's really put the wind up the powers that be in Australia, and ever since then they want the ability to shoot any crook at will.

Historic style armour can be owned, even modern made stuff. Meat works use chain mail. Kevlar motorbike gear and cut resistant safety pants for chain saw use are readily avaliable. Shouldnt be to hard to cobble together some effective armour if one really wanted to.

I think the gubberment is concerned that with the vests you will be more inclined to break the law.

3d printed guns are now a viable option. 3d printed bullet proof vests aren't.

You can buy Plate Carrier Vests in Aus. You can also buy 6mm 400Bis plate either as a plate or as a rifle target. Store the two parts in very separate areas and if SHTF well up to you what you put in those plate holding vests
