Semi Auto shotguns for IPSC

Post by Dess787 » 09 Sep 2023, 2:00 am

I know Semi autos are legal for IPSC in WA. It does seem close to impossible to get a new one.

The Benelli M4 is one of the best shotguns ever made and given the alternatives are all Turkish made shotguns (which i am sure are fine and good value), they are of course several notches below a Benelli.

How hard is it to obtain an new semi auto shotgun in WA ? You have to import it yourself ?

I know it would be a lot of hassle but if you will definitely get it in the end, i feel it would be worth it.

WA is such a PITA to ship to, are you able to travel interstate and take one home with you?

Importing -

It is much easier to find something that is already in country, rather than trying to gain permission to import.
