Police Raid ‘The Stockade’ Gun Shop In Sydney, Seizing 180 Pistols and Rifles


Police have raided a well known Sydney gun business which has built a reputation as a major supplier of “theatrical” weapons to popular TV shows and movies.

Officers from the NSW Police Firearm Registry seized 180 real pistols and rifles from The Stockade gun shop at Terrey Hills, on the northern beaches.

The shop has supplied replica weapons for about 50 TV series and movies, including Water Rats, Australia’s Most Wanted and Superman Returns.

The registry — which is responsible for administering the state’s firearms and prohibited weapons legislation — also audited more than 2000 firearms sold or stored in The Stockade.

As as result of the raid owner Tony Garland, who has been outspoken about amendments to some state gun laws, has been temporarily suspended from holding a firearms’ licence while investigations continue.
