    Dropbears mate, dropbears. The deadliest kind.

    This is one of those threads where I have to actually read my own posts as to not derail too much.
    But i will allow myself this;
    Yes i like archery as a strategic and methodical sport. Yes i tinkered. No i didn't get too far committed unfortunately.
    Surely enough that looks like a good starting kit to me.

    Question: Did they ever end up putting in the requirement for a firearms permit to purchase archery equipment like they were talking about a few years back? Or was that just for crossbows?

    I'm not sure about crossbows, I think they are probably a prohibited item in NSW.

    I find it to be quite relaxing. Some of my club members don't. I can hear the guy that shoots next to me swear like a truckie every time he lets a bad one off.
    They are definitely a prohibited item in NSW - along with pen guns, tazers, tannerite, etc

    Crossbows require a prohibited weapons permit in Victoria

    If you are a financial member of an authorised hunting club you don't require an actual firearms license per se but you do need to have exemption in the form of a permit issued by the commissioner of police . http://www.police.vic.gov.au/retriev...&status=active
    You pretty much need to be a member of a club which supports crossbow use to legally own one, an individual with no lawful excuse to own one will be denied the permit.
    "Just Cos they are Cool" doesn't cut it lol .

    rest of states as summarised in link below

    Prohibited Weapons
    EPM V2-18490 (X2 ),GP Spheroid V2.5 and GP Piccolo V2.5 ,BBCB, Provari mini's, REO mini V2.1, 18490 REO , Jazz Carto Pipes ( fitted with GA tank and churchwarden stem Totally Evil!!! ), Meerschaum pipe ,e-holly35W,Phideas, AIOS,Taifun atties, PC Pipe mods.PC Squonker, Svapiamo squonker, GP Paps Heron combo.
