    That's cheaper than my build by a long chalk.
    Anyone know why the ammo store is a no-no? I was under the impression that ammo could be stored ok in this set-up

    Unsure on this as the firearms act state, When I read this it doesn't really say you can't as they are separate requiring a different key

    Every firearms licence shall be subject to the following conditions:

    (a) the holder shall not put a firearm in such a place that a young child has ready access to it:
    (b) the holder, where he or she has both a firearm and ammunition for it in his or her possession, eitheró
    (i) shall take reasonable steps to ensure that the ammunition is not stored in such a way that a person who obtains access to the firearm also obtains access to the ammunition; or
    (ii) shall ensure that, where the ammunition is stored with the firearm, the firearm is not capable of being discharged




    Anyway I'm sure an Ammo safe is better than how the army stored there ammo

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/3908...n-ammo-storage

    I did find this mentioned and it more be related to endorsements

    Holders of endorsed licences are required to meet a higher security standard and are checked periodically. Ammunition must be stored securely and separately from firearms.

    Yeah thanks Trevs, that was my take on it too - presumably someone copied an error

    At the end of the day always best to ask your local AO, but then you can get different answers from different AO. From reading above I take it that you can store ammo in the Ammo safe... that's why everyone advertises it as the Ammo safe.
