Hi guys. I'm from Australia and own a Glock 17A Gen 4 (one after the bugs where fix) I have been shooting since 06 but have in the last year and a half started getting into the full on pistol thing and it has taken me that long to start shooting with my own gun due to our laws . So I hope I fit in with you poeple from the holyland of firearms :p Not sure how many if any other aussies are on here but I hope I can be part for the forum...

Welcome! So are you allowed to conceal carry over there?
No. We are only allowed to use handguns at a range for sporting use. And we must shoot a minimum number of shoots per year in Order to keep our handgun licence. Some farmers and hold a CAT H ( that's what we call our pistol licence here) an only a small few for dispatching live stock but again the handgun must not leave the property it's registered to unless for going to the gunsmith/shop or been handed in to police. No huntin with handguns for us :-(. We are also restricted to barrel length of no less then 12cm for s/a and 10cm for revolver then comes the caliber resections. No cal over .38 unless we shoot metallic silhouette and get a high cal endorsement on our licence. @ happysniper it says made in Austria.

Yep great land, nanny laws. Our court system hands out slaps on the wrist for drug offenses and assault offenses.

Congradulations on your Glock but sorry there are so many regulations, it is almost like California....
