All firearms and explosives must be licensed and there is a total ban on offensive weapons such as knuckle-dusters and flick knives.

It is also against the law to import:

  • High voltage electric ‘stun guns’.
  • Pepper sprays, CS gas canisters and other self-defence sprays.
  • High-powered air rifles.
  • Martial Arts weapons such as death stars and sword sticks.
  • Knives that have a concealed blade.

You may bring component parts of firearms into the country unless you have a licence for the weapon for which the parts are intended as components may be put to illegal uses.

All firearms must have a police shotgun licence or firearm certificate.

Please do not attempt to bring any of the above-mentioned products to the show. Failure to heed this warning will result in immediate expulsion from the show and possible prosecution.
