    There is nor reason to use the 6 letter version of the C word for Cahill. That is like using the term PIN Number. (Personal Identification Number Number) Remember, Cahill is a C word!!!!!! And so is Chris..... so his name is now C word C word?

    Dont need variety if they have Howa and Tikka. Tikka are guns for just about everybody, and Howas will suit those with more discerning taste.....

    Thanks for all your help. The revisions you mentioned have been made to the document form of this list.
    However, I am still unable to edit my initial post and therefore I cannot update the list on here.
    I contacted the website administrator but it's been a while and I haven't heard anything back.
    I'm not putting any faith in that getting sorted out so I may have to just repost the entire list in a new thread once I've finished updating it.
    I'm just getting more information on whether any other Smiths City branches sell firearms at the moment.
    Once I have all that info I'll finish updating the list and likely post it on other forums as well.

    Thanks again,
    Kiwigunguy

    I was speaking to a Branch manager of a Smiths city. What has happened is that they (Smiths City group) have expanded into the North island. The new North Island stores are not carrying a sports dept. And with all the media print advertising being applied to stock all stores carry and paid for by every store, the sports and hunting gear is not being put into the mailers. As such this department will not get any mention in the advertising, so rather than try and sell the department without any form of advertising, a lot of the stores have decided to follow the North island and clear out the sports gear. I saw that Blenheim had a 40% and 50% off on what they had left. Not sure about Kaikoura, but considering it is right next door to a H&F I would not be surprised if they dropped the dept as well. I suspect Chch will simply transfer its stock to the South city Branch rather than clear it out. But if you live near one that has / had a sports dept it may be worth having a look at what they have.

    I had noted Smiths City Invercargill seemed somewhat significantly reduced related to firearms stuff. Makes sense now

    A pretty savvy company, my due respect for that, but only Americans refer to McDonalds as a restaurant.

    On balance, just, it's probably not helpful to the LFAO cause, nor in general, to speak of a serving police officer that way.

    I disagree with him, he seems manipulative and economical with the truth... but hold back from C words, if nothing else out of respect for every cop past and present who has worn the police uniform.

    Just re-post the working list on the thread while working on it. It takes up very little memory compared to graphics.

    Fair call @Cordite. I dont use obscenities on typed posts except on rare occasions, and usually in a more humorous context. While he is clearly misrepresenting as much information as comes out of his mouth, I concede that its possible that he believes what he is doing and is potentially being (mis?) informed by those around him. Even so, he is not doing enough to justify being called the C word. I was just suggesting that his behaviour and distortions of truth are reflecting on him and that his name is starting to be used as a description or example of someone who lies in the same way as the words politician or lawyer is associated with dishonesty.

    As for his motives....Well if he is genuinely primarily trying to protect the Police officers to make sure they come home safe then I am fine with that, I simply and wholeheartedly disagree with what he is doing, and how he is doing it. If, however, he is using his position to further his own political agenda then I think he and the Police association needs to seriously reconsider his position as he is doing more damage to their cause every time he is caught misrepresenting the truth.

    Some of his desires have serious financial repercussions and while in principle I struggle to find reasons why not to try them, I feel that the resources involved could make a far bigger difference elsewhere.

    One reason given to me by a colleague for a register is apparently a person managed to buy nearly 70 firearms from stores and supply them to gangs, and this would have been picked up by a register as they would have wondered why he had that many firearms.....which made sense until I asked where he bought them from. Assorted gun shops, to which I pointed out, these are registered as effectively as an firearms register is already. Each sale is recorded by firearms retailers and audited by the police. So there is already a record of which firearms he obtained. And when I questioned this colleague, he admitted that this was how the fellow got caught so the system we have in place works as well as any future register anyway......

    I have not seen the article so I apologize if there are inaccuracies, and if anyone remembers the article or knows where it is, post it here as a reply and we can discuss the actual situation if need be.

    I just need to stop you guys right there. I will not have anyone defending that prick on this thread. He is indefensible.
    Chris Cahill is not misinformed or ignorant or naive. He has access to all the facts and knows full well that what he is saying is false.
    He is a dishonest, duplicitous, lying fucking cunt. I don't use language like that lightly or often but he has earned it.
    He is a disgrace to every police officer that has ever worn the uniform.
    Police officers are supposed to have values like honesty and integrity.
    When they don't, it only serves to drive a wedge between the police and the communities they are tasked with protecting.
    People like him are why we often struggle to see police as the good guys that are on our side, like they should be.
    He isn't just misleading the public, he is purposefully trying to create an us-versus-them mentality amongst police officers.
    If he can get police officers to see any person who has firearms as a "bad guy" or a threat that needs to be stopped, then he will have succeeded in his mind.
    Chris Cahill needs to go as soon as possible. Period. Thank You.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say here. I'm not stating any opinion on McDonald's as a business. That isn't really relevant here.
    I'm just using it as a standard for comparison here as it is ubiquitous. Everyone is familiar with McDonalds and how prevalent it is.

    Thank you, I will add West Shell Sports to the list.
    However, this list includes only retail stores that sell firearms, so Waitaki Engineering will not be included.
