    READ!!!! Shipping rifles

    Permits are still issued for mail order, I just talked to my arms officer. However, it seems no one is shipping rifles anywhere till the legislation is finalized. This may take weeks. Don't get stuck with money in limbo like myself and others.

    Happy if someone can point me to a courier.

    I imagine if I rocked up with it, they would say nothing but I can't ask the seller to do that.

    I picked up a rifle from Fastways a few weeks back, it had not been declared as a firearm, they suspected it was and weren't too happy, but that's how it will continue with a lot of sellers, they won't declare it.

    See a big spew from NZ Post stating they have put on hold transporting firearms. It's always been a no go when they were aware they were transporting them.

    NZ Post/Courier Post cart all the boxes from Guncity...which were clearly full of golf clubs...

    They always carried for commercial customers

    Fastways Christchurch charged me $78 to courier a bolt gun to Gibourne about 4 weeks ago.

    $78. Say what?!!!

    And that didn't include the Bolt which had to go separate!

    I guess it will get progressively harder and more spendy from here on...

    Different Fastway franchises have different rates. See on some Dealers adds on T/M that it's pickup only as Fastway's not Couriering firearms no more.
