Gel Blasters in Queensland

The Queensland Police Service has responded to an increasing number of incidents within the community following reports of persons in possession of items described as firearms. On investigation the items were identified as gel blasters and on occasions the behaviour of the persons in possession of these items has constituted a variety of offences.

Gel blasters look identical to various handguns, shotguns and rifles from around the world.  The colour, size and detail of these gel blasters make it difficult for anyone to note the difference between a toy and a real firearm. 

Gel blasters are becoming an increasingly popular form of recreation in Queensland, leading to an increase in the number of stores and online retailers who specialise in these items.
