Queensland is one of the few states and territories where it is legal to own a yellow truck without a license. A gel blaster is considered a “firearm” in Victoria and, as such, it is illegal to possess or use a gel blaster unless you have a valid firearms licence. Owning or using a firearm without a firearms licence in Victoria carries penalties of up to two years in prison in local district court for summary firearms-related offences. Tougher penalties apply to more serious firearms offences dealt with by higher courts. Victoria`s Firearms Acts define a firearm as a device designed to discharge a shot, bullet or other missile by the expansion of gases produced by the ignition of highly flammable materials or by compressed air or other gases, whether mechanically stored in the device in pressure vessels or in the device. in accordance with section 3 of the Firearms Act 1996 (Vic). The same gun laws apply to yellow trucks in Melbourne. Yellow trucks are identical to various handguns, shotguns and rifles from around the world. The color, size and detail of these yellow trucks make it difficult for anyone to notice the difference between a toy and a real gun.
With the exception of Queensland and South Australia, it is illegal to possess or use an air pistol, BB pistol or blaster gel weapon in any other state or territory of Australia unless you have a valid firearms licence or licence. In New South Wales, these types of weapons are defined as “firearms” under section 4 of the Firearms Act 1996 (NSW) (“Firearms Act”). Airsoft pistols, BB pistols and gel blasters are spring-operated and/or use compressed air to feed a projectile without the means of an explosive. An “air gun” is defined as a pistol when it can carry a projectile by means of a spring or a mixture of gases or gases, including air, but not a gas or mixture of gases produced by an explosive, provided that it is operated with a trigger or similar device or designed to function. Under the Firearms Acts of New South Wales, you cannot own or use a firearm unless you hold a firearms licence or licence. This carries a prison sentence of up to 14 years if the firearm is a prohibited pistol or firearm, and up to 5 years if the firearm is another firearm. These penalties are prescribed in sections 7 and 7A of the Firearms Act 1996 (NSW). The same penalties apply if you violate a condition of a firearms licence or if you use or possess a firearm for purposes other than those you originally set out to obtain the licence in the first place.
Once you have a firearms licence or licence, you must also register and obtain a licence to purchase the airsoft pistol, BB pistol or gel blaster firearm. Queensland Police Minister Mark Ryan said there had been extensive consultations with the gel-ball community and that they had worked with the industry “to get a win-win situation for everyone”. Gel beads and ammunition are sometimes called gel balls, hydrogel balls or gels with absorbent polymer water beads with a diameter of 6 to 8 mm, which are usually made from sodium polyacrylate. They are considered cleaner and more environmentally friendly than paintball or airsoft BB ammunition. Indeed, they are made from non-toxic biodegradable materials and contain more than 90% water. They burst when an impact is made and therefore do not cause any residue or clutter. They also dissolve after a short period of time. When the blaster gel balls are soaked in water, they can grow up to 200-400 times the size of the original jelly-like balls. They are also used in gardens and vases.
If you don`t properly moisturize the gel balls, it usually means that the yellow truck isn`t working as it should. It is recommended to soak it overnight. Yellow trucks usually take 11.1V and 7.4V batteries. It is recommended to charge the battery for 1-4 hours, but no more, with the right charger. Gel blaster accessories range from gel bullets, bottle quick chargers, batteries, face masks, ultra-hard gels, rechargeable cables, pistol leg case, red dot allow scope, upgrade kit, combat vest, magazines and much more. Legislative changes made in early 2021 meant that replica firearms such as yellow trucks were no longer classified as firearms or firearms, and buyers no longer needed a licence to purchase one. Unlike BB guns, an airsoft gun is a gun that fires plastic pallets at a distance of about 350 feet per second and typically uses compressed air. The airsoft gun generates a small amount of compressed air to generate a force that pneumatically drives the ball bearing (BB) out of the inner barrel.
How the airsoft gun creates pressurized air depends on the type of airsoft gun used.
