    That is a bloody good deal.
    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

    I got told by my local AO (Tauranga) that the minimum thickness has to be 3mm to pass the inspection.. Is this correct?

    0.8mm thickness? Be almost as safe as wrapping your rifle in tinfoil

    Looks more like a locker than a safe.

    I would be suprised if that were the case. As far as I am aware for a Std Licence you only need a lockable cupboard or cabinet. No thickness specified although it seems AO's love to invent "rules" or "interpretations".

    I think the requirements may have changed for what is suitable for storing firearms?

    I use an old locker bolted to the floor and wall, the AO who inspected it said it was perfect for the job.

    I made a cupboard out of mdf and the AO told me the rules had changed recently and mdf wasn't allowed but solid timber and plywood are, I asked to see the new rules as I can never find anything in writing and have still never seen anything.

    He passed mine but told me to run a chain through the trigger guards with a padlock, technically I wouldn't even need the cabinet if I had the chain

    Did the Police learn nothing about making up their own rules from the whole MSSA saga?!

    I have a thin sheet steel locker with a padlock, was passed fine

    It also says "of stout construction", anything under 3mm you could probably get into without tools just by booting it. Good on the AOs for turning down some of the pathetic attempts at firearm security. I personally think E-Cat regs should be the standard or at least a decent quality safe.

    It's not like you're just trying to keep the Tim Tams away from the kids.

    Security precautions for A cat firearms need to be of stout construction.
    Min 3mm steel cabinet
    Min 17 - 21mm plywood wooden cabinet
    If the safe in question is only 0.8mm steel, it won't comply.
    I was told that your security for an A cat firearm was mainly to hinder an opportunistic thief. Also historically, 'secure' probably meant secure from children more than anything.
    'Recommendations' are here:

    I dislike regional variances and see this booklet notes Bay of Plenty/Waikato Police Districts.
