Due to a long history of rather strict anti-gun laws in Australia, there has always been a heavy dependency on non-firearms weaponry there. Air Supply is the country’s oldest and largest Air gun manufacturer, with the company going back to 1933. In 1996, Australia passed the First Sidearm carry bill the finally established a right to keep and her arms, and defence weapons came into style. Air Supply, which had been making recreational air guns, saw an opportunity, correctly figured that most citizens would be more comfortable with airguns than firearms, and began producing carry pieces with enough power to serve in self defence roles.
The best designer employed by the firm is James Steinman, who has designed a little over half of the company’s current offerings. His designs have revolutionised the industry by combining cutting edge technology with old school looks for a nice retro look unmatched by most companies.
