Not sure if you have located a Very Pistol yet?
I have 3 x Orion 12# flare pistols, and would be happy to sell you one. Google
will show you what they look like. But first, double check that Tasmania allows them, and also see if you can locate any flares to use.
I have a bunch of 12# flares past expiry date that I'm about to dispose of, and need to source some replacements
. Existing ones were bought in USA and brought into Australia
on the boat
. They have 300' altitude and 15,000 candela.
Border Force does not restrict importing the flare pistols, hopefully someone will have the flares in stock. I know that they can't be shipped, I will have to pick up in person. I've spent an hour or so looking for a supplier of 12# aerial flares, but without success to date. I'll visit Whitworths tomorrow, but they don't appear to stock them.
