    Right. Have been searching the internets for an hour trying to work out what type of pistol i could get with a pistol license in Queensland.

    The legislation i read says barrel length needs to be above 12cm (or something). I dont want a bullshit sporting pistol, i want something that looks good and isn't obviously for sporting shooting (Yes, yes i know).
    I like the look of the glocks but everything that is "legal lengh" looks like absoltute ass.

    Anyone got some experience with the law and has some suggestions?

    you just said it. Everything that is legal length in that shithole you call a country is going to be 12cm or longer. I personally think your only option for a decent-looking pistol is going to be like a "race" gun from STI/SVI. Those look good.

    Or you could move.

    ID GET A 357 RUGER REVOLVER

    Or a silver taurus 9mm or ruger 22.

    who cares what it looks like are you gonna take photos of yourself with it?

    Sounds suspicious man. I dont like the sound of people wh want to buy good looking guns sounds sneaky

    Sydney's a shithole

    Australia is a good land mass but the country is shit.

    America has a better country.

    I think of country as an idea , laws,etc not a place.

    australia's good because of its resources per capita

    Any reason you couldn't get a Glock 34? It's got a 13.5cm barrel.

    barrel length != slide length.

    A glock 22 has a 3" barrel.

    WHAT Sort of bullets should i get for 357 or 9mm.

    grains,etc.

    we can own because our lever guns are chambered in pistol calibres. COWBOY GUN

    we can own bullets designed for defence rather than lighter sports bullets as well.

    .357 magnum or .357sig?

    for 9mm, 115gr is pretty standard for plinking but for home defense i would go 124gr +P

    ...that is IF you can defend yourself :sad2:

    yes, I know. I suggested a "race" style STI/SVI. Very first reply. Scroll up, and shut the fuck up.

    Actually the Glock 22 has a 4.49" barrels (114mm) and the overall lenght (slide + muzzle is 7.32" (186 mm)

    Anyway lets stick to 9mm because from what I remember they can't have 40 s&w down in aust.

    Minimum legal barrel lenght is 4.72" (120mm) for semi-automatic pistols, thus the Glock 34 with it's 5.32" barrel (135mm) is good to go.

    so the chamber counts on the barrel? Because I just measured mine and it's ~4.5" with the chamber, and only 3" of actual rifled "barrel".

    Not at all, i just dont want something thats been developed for target shooting and looks like ass.

    If you must know, i want one so i can develop the skillset, and also be prepared for zombie attack / shit happens.

    Those glocks with the huge barrel lengths just look like shit. I dont want a revolver, would rather mags.

    On a semi-auto, yes the chamber is included. Revolver barrel length is barrel only, measured from the front of the cylinder.
