Thousands of air rifles bound for Ngunnawal intercepted

johnboy 10 June 2005 6

ABC Online is reporting on what must have been a very disapointing day for someone in Ngunnawal who’s consignment of thousands of air rifles was intercepted by Customs.

Nearly 2,000 BB guns destined for Canberra have been seized by Customs officers who intercepted the shipment of illegal goods in Melbourne.

Indeed, 2000 less potential noisy dangerous lunatics.

It’s amusing that these are completely legal (currently) in the UK and there’s a whole (albeit small) industry built around buying, selling and using them for paintball-style skirmish games.

id hardly regard bb guns as dangerous weapons. what a beatup. for a laugh you should go to the customs website and look at the language used to describe certain seizures.

We had them as kids and nobody ever got hurt.

I had one when I was a kid. Funny thing is, it actually taught you to be responsible with firearms.

Also had a BB pistol when I lived in the States. That was cool for shooting cans of fences!
