Please note that we are unable to ship Gel Blasters to Western Australia at this point in time. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Gel blasters have been classified as a "prohibited weapon" by the Honorable Paul Papalia on the 3rd of July 2021. This means there are restrictions about how to lawfully use gel blasters in Western Australia. It also means are unable to ship gel blasters into the state.
We have begun the process of arguing the validity of statements made by WAPOL over this decision, but as it stands currently, it's not possible for us to ship gel blasters to Western Australia.

Gel Blasters in Perth - FAQs
Are gel blasters legal in Perth?
The legality of gel blasters in Perth is a rapidly evolving situation. Western Australia has recently classified them as a prohibited device, meaning that a permit or appropriate permission will be needed to own and use gel blasters.
However, we have begun the process of questioning this in court, so (hopefully!) this may change in the future.
Can I get fined for using a gel blaster in Perth?
The short answer is “yes”. Breaches of the legal requirements can carry fines under the Weapons Act 1999.
While you don't need a firearms permit to own and use gel blasters and airsoft in Perth, you do need the correct license. You may be fined for not having the proper licensing, or otherwise using the gel blasters in the wrong way - such as shooting at a person without their permission.
However, this is a rapidly evolving situation - the restrictions themselves were only recently implemented, and we have begun the process of arguing against them in court. Check this space to see if the regulations change for Western Australia!
