    Can anyone confirm this rumor

    A friend of mine with his helicopter ticket has told me that according to "someone in the right place" the tahr cull is underway and that the cullers are using semis, its second hand info but can anyone actually confirm this.

    Wouldn’t surprise me, The word is that the wording of the new law rammed through doesn’t actually prohibit you from using your prohibited guns during the amnesty period, someone on here that attended a NZDA meeting where Nic Taylor spoke said that’s what he said, during the Order in Council they WERE banned from being used but that’s been superseded by the new law? Despite what the Police are saying.

    Someone should OIA Sage and ask her what are they using and how?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Sorry but you can’t use the word ‘Crusade’ since the happenings in ChCh. Please choose your words more wisely 😆

    Why ever not, Crusader Meats in Te Kuiti still have their name and their logo is a crusader on a horse with shield and lance.

    I am too far North to hear a rumour like that so no.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    My interpretation based on many many hours of research on here is: by the time this passes page 1 it shall be truth

    Ms Sage will get sent a letter on monday, evidently they are the best method of delivery according to the oia website. You dont have to put a stamp on it either. But they recommend keeping a copy.
    I have a good idea of what i will politely ask for,although I feel like channelling Derek and Clive about this and a lot of other stuff at present.

    There was a guy on here a week ago skiting that he had his. Guys that have their livelihoods depending on it have been given priority. I’d say it’s possible that some people have theirs.

    You'll be wasting your time Marty, you wont uncover some great conspiracy involving DOC using illegal firearms. i know of several guys in the pest control industry that have their prohibited firearms endorsement. DOC would have pushed for their shooters to get them from the get go.

    Crusades were a legit self defense against a military expansion. What that means is that the Crusades were about as shameful as WW2 participation or a trip to the Falklands. Not perfect, not nice, but legit.

    I'd put $50 on that being bullshit, because, well, he's a bullshitter.
