    Endorsement audits continue.

    Just got a call from Firearms Licensing to arrange the routine 3 year audit. Seems a bit odd they're still doing them since E cat endorsements no longer exist and MSSA's no longer exist.

    do you have to pay for this audit or is this part of the police not in sync with the new law and amnesty?

    Behind the 8 ball I would say. I emailed NZPHQ to advise them I had imported items listed in my import permits and they replied saying thank you for advising, but the permits are now cancelled following the law change.

    WTF?

    So you only have(had) E, not B? If they are checking E only, this should suggest E is currently still in existence perhaps until the end of the amnesty? Have you asked them to explain this? MSSAs still exist, just a whole lot more of them than there were!

    The inspections for E endorsement holder will still occur to confirm the location for the MSSA firearms that are registered and not collected yet.

    It kind of makes since to me.

    Except there is no such thing any more as an MSSA. The former MSSA's are now legally just as any other outlawed semi-auto centrefire. There is no E cat and therefore no E cat audits in law. Also means you can store the now-unlawful firearm as per A cat standard of storage -- which is the only legal storage standard , aside from B cat which still exists.

    Continuing to store the firearm securely is probably a condition of the amnesty.

    I would have protested, but if it's the same guy as last time I'll enjoy the chin wag

    Of course the irony of Police auditing former E cat endorsement holders to ensure secure storage of prohibited firearms is not lost on people this week.

    If you know the fellah well then you have a chance to probe how he and his associates on the ground feel about what has happened in the last couple of months. I for one would like to know.

    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

    probably been checked and passed as fit for storage due to the enhanced security of the police sign out front.

    I just had my storage( A cat) checked last week. Guy doing the check did not seem too enthused about the whole thing. Think he was pretty septic over the whole your fired..... sorry please come back thing. Said going away from dealing with people face to face was a big fuck up.

    Stupid thing is MSSA endorsement is now defunct/void and mssa's banned due to their law change. However if you are a "professional pest controller/culler" you can still have them.
    So what endorsement are they covered under then?
