Australian model’s priceless reaction to shooting a firearm on Texas gun range says it all

“We’re not in Australia anymore, Toto.”

Professional Australian surfer and model Ellie-Jean Coffey did something this week most people from “down under” rarely get the chance to experience.

She fired a high-powered, semi-automatic rifle, and by the look on her face, she found it fun and exhilarating.

Coffey, who’s also ranked number six on Playboy’s Top 21 “Hottest Surfer Babes on Instagram,” posted a video of her experience on that very same social medium with the caption, “We’re not in Australia anymore, Toto.”

Following a mass shooting in Tasmania in 1996 that took the lives of 35 people and injured an additional 23, Australia restricted private ownership of certain types of semi-automatic and pump-action weapons and forced owners firearms to dispose of them in a government buy-back program.

According to Wikipedia:

A person who possesses or uses a firearm [in Australia] must have a firearm licence. Licence holders must be at least 18 years of age, have a “genuine reason” for holding a firearm license and must not be a “prohibited person”. All firearms in Australia must be registered by serial number to the owner, who also holds a firearms licence.


Coffey wasn’t subject to these restrictions on Tuesday when the video was shot. She was visiting the range at LaRue Tactical in Leander, Texas.
