Number of Handguns in South Australia

As at June 2010 there were 18,480 handguns registered in SA. As noted in previous media articles,* the original figures given for SA at 40,000+ were incorrect because of changes to counting rules etc. Changes to the counting rules has now occurred and the figure provided is now accurate.

[*A figure of 41,519 was also cited in Bricknell, 2008.1 In GunPolicy.org tables and charts, this has been corrected].
