  • Public consultation on Gel Blasters and other Replica Firearms

    The Queensland Police Service has observed a concerning rise in the number of incidents involving replica firearms, including gel blasters, in public. Gel blasters are typically designed to replicate actual firearms that fire water absorbent pellets. While many enjoy using the devices for recreational purposes, as with other replica firearms, their close resemblance to actual firearms may cause alarm when seen or used in public.

    The Queensland Government acknowledges the legitimate use of gel blasters for organised recreational activities, however is mindful of the need to protect safety and avoid the alarm that the devices can cause.

    As such, feedback is sought regarding the ownership and use of gel blasters and other replica firearms and seeks views on regulatory measures recommended by the Queensland Police Service.

    This survey contains 7 questions and can be completed in less than 15 minutes.
