Even though they use blanks, our Gumbiment would freak out about the pointing of firearms in directions other than at a defined target with backstops. No one would get a permit for this without a major shift in attitude from the Powers that Be. Sad, but there it is. Cheers

Never heard of this. They must be using some sort of small snake shot or something.

No, they use Theatrical blanks with Black Powder and Smokeless, it will pop the balloons from 20 feet, still needs great skill.

Since buying a gelblaster my missus has been trying to find out if they make lever action blasters to set up something to involve our horses like a cowboy shoot. Would be a hoot riding thru the scrub shooting each other . I wonde.if the hardened gels would pop a balloon. For some type of event similar to the one shown above ???? :unknown: :lol: :drinks:

Or get some of these, https://www.renegadeblasters.com.au/sho ... blue-ammo/
If you put food colouring in the water that you soak the gel balls in, would you have the same effect as paint balls eg they leave a coloured mark on who ever they hit?
