ACT Firearms Legislation – Paintball change update!

kieran AP 4 July 2008 47

G’day ….this is another paintball update, so as always, if not interested please feel free to look elsewhere 🙂

The ACT Firearms amendments passed last night, including three paintball specific provisions:
1. The approval of personal ownership of markers in the ACT.
2. The recognition of interstate/international ownership eg you can take your martker to NSW and vice versa.
3. The participation age has been reduced to 16.

Now, I don’t know the final wording yet or any conditions attached to the above, but it is a step in the right direction!

I will post updates at when I have them, for those interested!

We will look at having a ‘gala’ day with demonstrations etc some time soon!

cheers, Kieran

ant051 – talk to kieranap on this site, hes down southside, or theres a field at piallago which is reasonble.

Every 6 months or so Im involved in a game so I’ll post something closer to when we are going to play (definetly not the season at the moment to be playing).

New to this..been playing rec paintball for a while and keen on getting into it a bit more, so i’d be up for a day on the fields if anyone is looking on making up numbers or putting a day together.

Nah, they just like to hide in the bushes and ‘spray’ members of the other ‘team’.

2 in one. Aim for the head, fire, out comes the moron.

Sorry, should have said ‘spray’.

I played indoor paintball in Canada (think laser tag with paintball guns, I mean markers…).

Any chance of that happening here?

I’m keen if it doesnt clash, only played the one time at outer Gungahlin.

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 11:53 pm 05 Jul 08

Never said I didn’t, Maelinar. I just pick good targets.

Mælinar Mælinar 10:55 pm 05 Jul 08

Jakez, when it warms up we’ll let you know when we are next painting. – same comment goes for Jazz.

Since the last paintball session I organised was undersubscribed, we’ll limit the attendance to people who have paid deposits beforehand. I can guarantee the RA Admins will meet somebody that they all know, but has not ever posted on this site – a keen paintballer though.

Otherwise, as Thumps said, when it gets warmer we will send around a relevant email.

P.S. Katy, Simon and Jon, you play for free. Come meet some constituents.

Mælinar Mælinar 10:46 pm 05 Jul 08

Great job admitting you fire missiles deekhead. Welcome to the mouse-trap.

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 10:42 pm 05 Jul 08

Great job ignoring my missile. Best not get involved when you haven’t the brains to reply 😉

Mælinar Mælinar 10:01 pm 05 Jul 08

Wow, somebody’s missle must have been a dud, on account of its still on the ignore list…

@bigfoot – gratz.

@admins – is there a rank above protagonist ?

and btw Thumper for Admin.

and Che, don’t forget I respekt you, and so should everybody else. I’ve just not been quick enough on the dial to get in on time.

Thumper Thumper 9:11 pm 05 Jul 08

Cool, I can get a decent gat…

bigfeet bigfeet 9:00 pm 05 Jul 08

Wow, I moved from Newbie to Troublemaker.

How exciting…….

I cracking a bottle of shiraz to celebrate.

What? I can’t call it a gun? I can’t say I am shooting at someone? I can’t make fun of the person I shot by saying I totally wasted them? There is no more red dye, simulating blood?

Where has all the fun gone?

use green and think that you “killed”them underwater….

Mælinar said :

yay I can shoot 16 year olds now

I’m not quite with this comment – does it mean :

Yay I can play, I’m now 16 ?
Yay, I am able to play against 16 year olds ?

Also, you don’t shoot people on account of shooting people is currently illegal. Read my post above re: terminology and paintball for some nice hints.

ok, what if we say we are going to pepper some poor sod until they look like a leopard at the gym / exercise / summer with all the bruises?

The comment about 16-year olds is that the entry age is 16, not 18. 16-year olds seem to have far more violent tendencies than older people, or at least they think so.

I personally have found that the only people who shouldn’t participate in paintball are the ones that don’t listen to the rules – getting to line up and blast them after they are caught lifting or removing their helmet / mask “in play” is very satisfactory….

then again, I just look for a handy vantage point and save my paint projectiles by picking people off one by one, must be the reason I don’t play much anymore….
