(a) 5 semi automatic pistols (38 mm);[sic.]*
(b) 20 semi automatic pistols (22 mm);[sic]*
(c) 50 semi automatic pistols (9mm);
(d) 10,000 rounds of ammunition;
(e) 50 handcuffs, 50 whistles and 50 batons.

2) Commencement

This Act is taken to have commenced on 12 July 2000.

[Editor's note: *These two calibres are more likely to be imperial than metric. For 38mm read .38 inch, and for 22mm read .22 inch. The .38mm 'semi-automatic pistols' could instead be revolvers in that calibre.]
