    Your last sentence there is a cause for concern, I think. Welcome to NZ, I suppose...

    This. Only real advice that will count will be your knowledge of these 7 rules. Get these mastered and nailed and the test almost becomes self explanatory. Memorise these rules. KNOW these rules forwards, backwards. Understand them. Do this and you will be fine with the test. And as mentioned it is a Firearms Safety test with the emphasis on safety. If you are unsure which answer might apply the best think of this question for your instructor..."What is this question asking?" That will get you clarification around what they are looking for.

    It all comes down to the SEVEN BASIC RULES.
