    E-CAT Endorsement Requirements

    I've been looking into exactly what is required to get the E-CAT endorsement.
    I can't be looking for the correct thing as I can't seem to find much at all.
    What I can't find is application requirements, and a form for any endorsements.

    What I did find so far......

    -Storage requirements
    http://www.police.govt.nz/sites/defa...nts-pol67n.pdf

    -Endorsement Fee's
    Standard licence endorsement(s): $204.00 - For one or more endorsements to a standard firearms licence, for the posession of; Target pistols ("B" endorsement), Millitary-style semi-automatic rifles or shotguns [MSSA] ("E" endorsement), a collection of pistols or restricted weapons ("C" Collectors or Museum endorsement), Pistols or restricted weapons for performing a play/film/re-enactment ("C" Theatrical endorsement), Pistols or restricted weapons for hire or sale ("F" endorsement - dealers or their employees).

    If anyone has more to add, please do

    Go to your local police station and ask for the form for an e cat endorsment, thats the start and there is a number of questions on the form. Ring your AO and he/she will answer any questions you may have before submitting the application.
    Belong to a club that shoots military rifles and have two referees that shoot have E Cat thats the start. Will need an E cat safe or course. Good luck. Took 3months to get mine this year.

    Trying to do as much homework as I can before going in to see the AO.
    Having them actually be there would make things easier though.

    Getting info for A-CAT is straight forward, but any endorsement seems to be excessively hard.
    I would've thought there would be info readily available.

    I have emailed the Police for all the info, so I'll see if they reply with anything helpful.

    Join a Rifle Club .... even if it is only for a short period.

    Don't mention anything about Hunting on your application form.

    Do mention Membership of a Rifle Club, competing in Military and 3 Gun matches and/or Pest Control.

    Don't pick Referees that will mention anything to do with Hunting

    Do pick Referees that will mention Rifle Club membership, Military competitions, 3 Gun matches and or Pest Control.

    Oh and dont say anything about needing an MSSA for Hunting when speaking with the Interviewing Officer.

    Upgrade your security to meet E cat requirements, 6mm steel safe is easiest/cheapest, purpose built strongroom is hardest/dearest.

    Good Luck.

    Cheers

    Cheers guys. Your advise and experiences are appreciated

    I'm not applying yet...... I am getting my security upgraded while waiting to see what they will implement in the near future before going ahead with applying.
    Just trying to get as much info together as possible for now.
    Plus hopefully making it easier for others to follow as well.

    I'm hoping, with the new "rules" coming soon, they will do some sort of deal for those who already have firearms that will be reclassified by the changes. Whether that be waivering the referee requirement or something else to make things easier......???

    PTP reasons stated can become conditions attached to the endorsement. If you dont state anything about hunting then by twisted logic you may not be able to use it for that purpose.

    As compound said, list everything you can think of, ill find what I wrote and post it up as its a common cover all statement. Also don't be discouraged when you first go to your AO to get the form, its their job to talk you out of getting it - mine was anti me getting it when I first went in but he's ok now he knows I'm a legit shooter.

    About as much as what books I have does. It's an awfully small section to fill out with that information!

    Yeah they are profiling you.



    Obviously they are in yesteryear as well. I dont subscribe to any physical mags, I am subscribed to a lot of sites like this though where the information is up to date and archived and hence searchable and I can ask Qs across the world and be pretty much guaranteed an answer within 24~48 hours...though usually 6 answers, some or all different, LOL



    Anyway it pretty much tells you how to answer,

    Ar15, because its competitive (is there anything more competitive?)

    Reloading well go buy a setup, $800ish....load a few rounds, who knows you might like it, I do fascinating if a bit frustrating.

    The correct answer to question one is....

    1. Why do I need a MSSA?
    For hunting, target shooting, SRA shooting, collecting and such other lawful uses that may from time to time interest me.

    Oh and here is a PDF copy of the form - though I typed mine out in Word as it was a heap tidier than the form.
