Change to requirements for airguns purchases
[24 Jan 2018] Police mail order guidelines for form S.43A previously required people to prove membership of an airsoft club when purchasing an airsoft gun. After feedback from the public, Police has reviewed this requirement and found it is not a requirement of the Arms Act. Therefore, Police has now amended the policy to remove this requirement and updated all relevant documentation. Changes effective from 24 January 2018.
