What are gel blasters?

 

The sport of gel blasting is a fun and exhilarating activity enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels.

 

Gel blasters are lightweight toys that are powered by a rechargeable battery or manual spring and shoot non-toxic, biodegradable gel balls. Meaning they are safe, environmentally friendly - with no mess to clean up.

 

Gel blasters are an affordable and fun activity that can be played at home or in gel ball venues around Australia. Small and very affordable packs of 10,000 gel balls can provide endless hours of fun for you, friends, and the whole family.

 

 

Is a licence required?

 

As of December 2017, gel blasters have been classified as toys and are legal in QLD. TacNation possess the legally required permit to import gel blasters into Australia, so you can feel confident purchasing your gel blaster from us. As laws vary with each State/Territory, we advise customers to consult with their local law enforcement.

My Gel Blasters keeps jamming, is it faulty?

 

Issues related to jams are usually attributable to the gel balls. Ensure you follow proper instructions when growing and storing gel balls. Use a recently hydrated batch of gel balls as they are more likely to be at their correct size and hardness. Please keep in mind that gel blasters are toys and experiencing some jams is normal.

 

How do I transport my Gel Blaster in public?

 

In public, please keep your gel blaster concealed at all times. When transporting your gel blaster, we recommend keeping it in a rifle bag or storage case. These can be purchased from our website. Mistaken gel blasters for actual firearms may raise alarm and authorities to be called and possible charges and/or fines to be imposed.

 

How long does it take to charge my Gel Blaster battery?

 

Charge times will depend on the current battery level. Generally, batteries take 1-3 hours to charge from low and sometimes longer if the battery is fully depleted. We recommend charging the battery as soon as you hear/notice it is running low. To maintain optimum battery life and for safety, disconnect the charger as soon as it is full and do not leave your battery charging unattended.

 

Is there a minimum age to use/own a gel blaster?

 

There is currently no age limit for a person to possess or use a gel blaster. However, clubs, ranges, field operators and associations may have age restrictions for persons using their services.

 

GEL BALLS

 

How do I grow gel balls?

 

A small packet of 10,000 gel balls can be grown in a 3L container/bottle. Place the dehydrated gel balls in water for at least 4 hours. They will grow to 7-8mm and then be ready for use. Drain the water before loading your magazine. Water in your gel blaster can rust and damage your blaster.

 

How do I store gel balls?

 

Store un/drained gel balls in an airtight container/bottle after they have been hydrated. This will keep them at their ideal size and avoid shrinkage. The gel balls can be rehydrated if they do shrink but won’t be as hard as originally. For long term storage, storing in the fridge is recommended. To avoid damage to your blaster, remove gel balls from the magazine and blaster when not in use.

 

Standard (milky whites) vs Extreme Hardness gel balls

 

Extreme hardness gel balls are firmer and have a higher crush threshold than standard milky white gel balls. Because they are harder, they will also hurt more on impact. We recommend using these gel balls especially as they have less chance of breaking when fired.

 

Can I pick up?

 

Unfortunately, at the present time, we are an online only retailer. Please place an order on our website for fast delivery Australia-wide.

 

Are gel balls safe?

 

Yes, gel balls are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. They break down and leave no stains or residue.
