People of Western Australia

Over the course of two days, approximately 2,400 WA residents have signed our petition, expressing their wish for Airsoft devices to be excluded from the scope of the Firearms Act and for the sport of Airsoft to be self-regulated by a dedicated State Airsoft Sports Association.

In addition, we know countless letters, Tweets and emails went out to Local Members of Parliament and the Minister for Police.

Furthermore, we have had a significant number of club morale patch purchased from WA and wider Australia.
