Shooters Union Australia announcement

I’m now happy to welcome TAS category to the forum following this news from Shooters Union Australia.

Our hard work in Tasmania has paid off!
TasPol have confirmed that gel blasters which are not imitations of real firearms will be treated as TOYS - they are no longer banned, and the Launceston Gel Ball Club and all other gelsoft enthusiasts in Tasmania are free to legally enjoy their activity.
This is an excellent result which would not have been possible without the efforts of Shooters Union Tasmania, Shooters,Fishers and Farmers Party of Tasmania the Launceston Gel Ball Club, as well as a common-sense approach by TASPOL to the issue.
Next on our list: South Australia. Stay tuned! #gelsoft #gelblaster

Wonder if this means you could just repaint an existing one bright colours?

Or add weird external attachments that overall change the look or mask the original hardware

Totally not future proofing a certain recent expensive purchase…

Spray it with that automotive colour rubber paint so you could peel it off and change colours as needed

Excellent news. Well done to all involved. As suggested, now move the focus to South Australia, and then who knows where, common sense coupled with will, will prevail.

Can’t wait to see some of the blasters that the Tassies have created. Tasmanians, show us your blasters!

Yeah, this is good news alright, but still restrictive as you are not allowed realistic looking blasters at all. Great to be able to skirmish in Tas regardless, theoretically you should be able to do a similar thing in Vic too, as long as they look like nerf blasters ?
