I have an air rifle... I shot myself in the foot to see how much it hurt... Now I'm fairly certain I won't ever shoot anyone else with it... unless it's really REALLY funny... but f**k me that hurt! I still have a scar...

My Grandpa used one to wake me up when i was a kid. It wasnt loaded and he just shot it into the air. Scared the shit out of me though.

Cause I wanted to shoot my friends with it... I thought I would do what seemed like a smart idea at the time and find out how much i was hurting them... can't laugh at a joke at someone elses expense if you couldn't laugh at the same joke done on you...

Plus I was drunk...

i used to have a diana one.... except it wasnt really powerfull. i think i hit someone with it. about 30-50m away, left a small bruise and thats all. it was good for one thing only. but my cousin's cheap knockoff was more accurate and powerfull.

ahh yeah..... i swear i havent laughed hard enough when i read that you need a firearm licence in australia to own an air rifle..... :wub:

hehehe The fact that you stated that you are after it just to shoot in your garage will never secure you a shooters license , as it is illegal too discharge any firearm in a designated built up area (assuming you are)....

The only way you are able to get a shooters license these days is to prove that you hunt (or intent to hunt) by written consent by a farm owner . Otherwise prove that you are (or intend) to shoot on a range i.e. by being a member an approved shooting range or being a member of SSAA (sporting shooters association of Australia) .

Once you have the reason part of the requirements , you need to then sit the standard license test for either an A or A+B license .

The license test is very easy (basic gun safety really) its the same test for a 12-year old to get a shooters permit as it is to get a full license at 18 years .

(assuming its still the same).

I used to own a Gamo 440 hunter in .177 (when i was young) It was very accurate with or with out a scope mounted . i used it for anything from targets to shooting small game ... was very potent on rabbits , feral cats and even foxes up-to around 40 meters or so depending on the ammo used ...

You can pay anything from $40 to a couple of thousand on an air rifle , I think i payed around $350 for the one i had ...

In reality with buying a new air rifle , there not the old piece of shi# that you could shoot your mate in the ass with at point blank range and at worse leave a bruise ...

With the majority reaching velocities of around 1000 fps and more ... only around 200 fps off a .22 rim fire ... there something that you hope not to be shot with ...

hehehe ...

    • Hey everyone, hows it going?   I currently own a 1972 Skyline/Hakosuka (which is now for sale) and a S13 Silvia! From Sydne, Aus. Not really sure what else to put here!
    • Ahhh, technically the way in Victoria is you are supposed to Engage the engineer (VASS) before you register the car. This is why you can't engineer only a specific mod, the entire car as a whole must pass with all modifications done to it. You then have a VASS cert and a RWC and you can then register your modified car. I did my conversion and had the registered, but off the road while the V8 went into it. I did have to drive it to Sydney to get the Emissions test for Victoria (lol - IM240) so during that solitary drive if I got defected well, it'd be moved around on a trailer most likely after that. But that didn't happen, so here I am. I am very jealous of the more lax emission laws in WA, and as a bonus you can get it done inside your own state!
    • Hey all having some issues with starting and keeping my r34 idling checked n changed the usual    just wondering if anyone in eastern to northern suburbs VIC has a fc-hako or datalogit so i can have a check over my power fc will reward with $$ and a 6 pack of your choice from Dan Murphys car is located in mill park lakes    0411119492 JET    
    • Yeh, here they want you to get approval before you start modifying. It isnt illegal to upgrade your turbo or ecu or anything like that, but you are supposed to fill out a form with a list of your intended modifications to apply for 'pre-approval' which is basically a letter from the head of the Department of Transport that says yes you can do these modifications, provided you meet such and such conditions. That letter then enables you to engage a mechanical engineer, without that letter you aren't allowed to get engineering approval on any modifications.   Then the engineers job is to make sure you comply the conditions listed on the pre-approval letter, which will always include the maximum 180hp/tonne rule, and emissions testing, etc. And can also include other things that the Dept. Of Transport just throw in, like swept volume tests etc.   Easy and straightforward if done the way they want you to do it. Hard, frustrating and expensive if you've already done the modifications.
