    Used to spend holidays on the westcoast as a kid, granddad had a rusty old .22lr with a bailing twine sling and a slug gun.

    Thankfully granddad would notice missing .22lr because when we were left alone and would lob slug gun pellets off the deck into the bulls arses to get them worked up and then start fighting.

    So Im all for locking them up, haha.

    It,s all turning to shit these days & some of the aboves posts are a perfect example of that being safe with a firearm isn't rocket science there called the 7 basic rules for a reason maybe a helpful lawyer can put there spin on it & make them the 7 complex & complicated rules to save us all , common sense will be gone & probably illegal , I like to teach young people to shoot but sometimes they focus on the shooting side more than the safety side 1 minute a gun is pointed safely next minute it,s not & that is my que at arms length if need be to stop that , its these legal fuckers pulling things to bits that are ruining this country .

    What's wrong, @systolic? Nobody stroking your ego so you have to DIY? I think a large majority of us wish you'd just fuck off.

    I learnt long ago not to worry too much about what people I don't know think about me. There may be an ignore function on this forum for you to use if you like.

    [QUOTE=kotuku;578276] cowboys&itchybums

    Yes ! Im adamant that we ( as 4 year olds ) did refer to the indians as itchy bums , my Dad said that anyone doing that much whoopin' and hollerin' must have piles ( didn't find out about them till later )..................no other bugger remembers that ..... 'cept you Kotuku...... thanlyou


    I liked the way they used to slither over, under and around rocks ( cartoons ) , I think , now in these politically correct days that should be taken as a compliment to their sneakiness and ability to outwit cowboys ( who didn't exactly reek of intelligence )

    IIRCthe younger itchybums used to come roarin outta the long grass hurlin long green things like flax with a galdioli bulb on the end at ya.bloody things stung if they connected.the occasional toitoi arrow(blunt off course also met a target,with cowboy leaving battlefield temporarily (no bloody yellowcards or concussion tests) for mum to sort it ,then bugger ya back to the fray!! barefoot &shorts all summer,shirt and gumboots in the winter and it was a real shit sandwich when ya bloody sisters beat you at ya game.no wonder our rugby wingers developed such good sidesteps.
    BTW which of you buggers was an ace tree climber-higher up, thinnest branches or the best Ive ever seen-bloke i knew used to climb pungas(aka bungies)and perch in the crown whilst we took to it with tomahawks.a loud whoop and timber mickey would ride her down.
    there was the odd trip which rendered him stone cold but he always got up so that was fine by us.
    hehehe try that today you so called tough boys!!!!!!!!!!

Happened on several occassions/visits. Had received firearm instruction on many outings with Dad (ex serviceman).
    - Aged ~ 15 years, on L&S farm behind Taupo. Dad and mate headed off with one 22. Mate and I given box of bullets and other 22 and headed off in opposite direction. Met up later and compared numbers shot (in those days teaming with rabbits). Jokingly chastised if the ratio per bullets fired wasn't 1:1.
    - Aged ~ 14 years. Staying on L&S farm during school hols. Out every day on my own shooting rabbits with farm's 22 Gecado Plinker. Meeting mate from adjacent farm of similar age also armed. More rabbit dead.

    Cringe now when I think back. Supervision, even down to the finer point of how it should occur up close - NOPE.
    How common in those days - pretty common from my recollection and comparing notes with mates.
    Sounds very familiar, Zimmer. And I remember how proud I felt when the old man trusted me enough to say, "Go and get us a couple of abbits for dinner, headshots only" while handing me his old Cooey single-shot .22. But that only came after about 3 years of VERY close supervision and whack round the head instruction.

    What you lot fail to understand it seems is the cops have fuck all idea about the laws. You do realize it's illegal to leave a firearm in a vehicle, even a locked one. You are meant to take it with you. Cops are actively telling people to break the law by telling them to cover them and leave them in cars. WRONG. Very fucking wrong.
    Hell, a lot of cops have no fucking idea about firearms themselves never mind the law that goes with it...

    Then you get the dropkick townies that have decided they want to live out of the big cities or have a holiday house 'in the country, because we are fucking cocks'. They are the bane of my existence at the moment. Between a few guns and dogs what a fucking nightmare, if it's not the cops it's the spca. Then we also get asked about thing's when it's other people doing dumb shit.

    Just remember, the arms code is just a guide it's NOT law. It's NOT illegal to have ammo in a vehicle as by law it doesn't have to be locked up.

    Arms Regulations 1992

    19 Conditions relating to security precautions

    2 c) ensuring that no firearm in the holder’s possession is left in a vehicle that is unattended.

    If the firearm is in a vehicle and there is someone in attendance (hopefully not someone who intends to steal the firearm) then that should be legal. It's reasonable to assume that attendance means in the presence of? Therefore, someone in attendance could be someone next to the vehicle, whether locked or unlocked.

    I would think that's correct, although I don't know what the Land Transport Act 1998, if anything, says about it because I'm too lazy to look it up.

    I was referring to what you actually wrote. You mentioned nothing about being unattended.

    If you're travelling alone, you obviously can't take a firearm into a service station like BP if you needed to use the toilet. If you asked an attendant to keep a close eye on the locked vehicle and that the firearm was covered up while you're temporarily occupied, that shouldn't be a problem.
