    Most a check in don't give a monkeys but you do get the one who is a vegan our safe member now and again.
    Last time I came into nz all the cop wanted to know was my X spot funny bugger
    Most of my flying issues have been entering of leaving NZ. Mostly no probs elsewhere although I did have the Oz Federal Police temporarily confiscate my guns once on arrival there. But that’s another story.

    The average cop here unfortunately knows nothing about FAs. That was proven on one of my flights out from Auckland where I contacted the cops to advise of my departure with a FA. The young guy came to me in departures area, read heaps of people, to do his thing. Unbelievable. On getting the rifle out of the case a clear zone of 15 meters around me immediately occurred. The rifle in question was a muzzle loader. He instructed that I “break open the action” (shotgun speak maybe) so that he could determine the rifle was not loaded. I said it was a muzzle loader and it didn’t open up like a bolt gun. All that did was cause him to instruct again in a louder voice and the people free area around me expanded. Eventually I was able to convince him by using the ram rod down the barrel that the rifle was charge free.

    When we eventually returned to NZ to live I had 5 FAs with me. They took me off to one side and thru a separate lane, showed no interest in the rest of our goods, and sent us on our way miles ahead of all the other poor passengers.

    Sorry, bit off topic.
