I don't appreciate being called a moron, I'd like an apology.
Your sarcasm detector is busted. You should look at having it repaired.
Sarcasm detector broken much?
Hurley, if you have a look at the link I posted earlier, you don't need two references, you only need the owner of the property to sign an annexure of your application stating your "genuine reason" for owning a firearm is to use it to shoot recreationally on their property
Lol sorry mate, realised it was a sarcastic comment but I was posting drunk. Always a bad idea
Edit: And after some of the random clips I've seen on youtube, I'm fairly confident that some people would use a .416 Barret on foxes and consider it sporting .
I laugh at your .416 Barrett.
.700 Nitro Express is what all the cool kids use for fox hunting.
well it's not going to feel pain i guess, so it's still humane if you consider turning a fox into a cloud of red mist humane haha
Seriously though, I do agree with you though. target shooting with that thing would be pretty fun though! Expensive rifle but
does anyone have a picture of the round from one of those .700 rifles?
that would be INSANE....
not legal in aus either, is it?
Lahti_L-39 fires a 20mm bullet (approximately .78 calibre). Think it's considered to be about the limit for shoulder fired weapons (though I wouldn't want to be the one firing it )
Found a picture of the actual cartridge:

20mm Lahti on the left, 50 BMG on the right, 223 at the front
Can anyone tell me the reason why we first even had firearms allowed in Australia with the license ?
on the smaller side of the scale i just picked up my new .22 CZ

cant wait to take it fox hunting!
You haven't made yourself very clear. Do you mean why we allowed firearms in Australia period, or why we introduced firearms licences?
Good choice. What's that, a 452 American?
Sorry, I mean to say
Does anyone know why we were allowed to have firearms without license's previously ?
The same reason we didn't need licenses for anything before they were introduced, there was not a perceived need by government for one. Unless I also misunderstood your question?
Exactly. I guess it was never much of a worry back in the day... The same reason why seatbelts or motorcycle helmets weren't mandatory, you could smoke anywhere you wanted, etc.
Until it was identified that shit like this needed to be regulated, no-one really batted an eyelid.
I laugh at your ignorance, .50BMG has more power than the .700NE. I am also fairly sure the firearm in the video is chambered for .577 Tyrannosaur
The case formed .50 fat mac was pretty wild if you wanted big power without the problems of owning a destructive device
That article gives a bit of a history of the issue.
Ive fired a 40mm many many times.
Realisticly your choice of weapon depends on what you want to do with it. If all you want to do is put holes in paper at the range to pass the time get yourself a .22. Cheap ammo.
Not ignorance. The reason that people started talking about the .416 was as a (legal) alternative to the .50 BMG. So I one-upped them with the .700.
Is the .700NE even legal here?
I cant imagine getting a purchase permit for anything over 10mm would be easy. Biggest thing realistically available would be a rifle for .375H&H.
yeah its the 452 american. shot it a few times at the range and i really liked it, cant wait to take it out in the field!
