The kids aren’t going to be in the same country as me for US father’s day (I get two this year!), so they gave me my present early. I now have a complete set of UK police riot armor — the helmet, shield, and leg protectors. This has already come in handy whilst parenting hyperactive children. I wonder if its legal for me to own such things in Australia?
Digging a bit further, it appears:
I can’t see any mention of riot armor (which wouldn’t stop a bullet) though, nor a reference to militaria, apart from militaria fairs needing a permit. I wonder if anyone else has thoughts on this?
