    yes dave its very strick here in australia , the police want to know everything about you, your history, where you live , what you would like to collect, a legitimate reason why you want to collect it, what type, how many, why so many, got to do saftey course, join a gun club, join a historical collectors club, lodge an application for a permit to police who do a back ground check on you, if you pass the check you get your permit. you have to be a model citizen, any trouble & you loose your permit along with your collection & you cannot reply for another 5 years, what more can you ask for? australia where the government watches everyone very closely, i think they have more freedom in russia lol. cheers james

    Be VERY careful... even with objects bought from collectors. I bought a Greman AZ23 8.8cm fuse from a collector in France and when I opened the package I found it was live. Now I'm stuck with it. Another friend who collects Japanese ordinance bought a PERFECT large Japanese mortar round from a fellow collector. It say on a shelf in his house for a year before he decided to play with it. When he unscrewed the fuse he thought it strange that the fuse still had a gaine attached. He looked inside the round and realized the round was still 100% live. He realized how lucky he was that the round hadn't detonated when he unscrewed the fuse. Has to have EOD remove and disarm it.
