    Strange bunch...I wonder what makes it all safer by courier...and then back to the rural NZ Post for delivery.

    The reason given for destruction of item is because there is no safe way to return item to sender.

    But they would only being returning to sender because they refuse to deliver it - which their website says they will. It's easy to safely return a scope, stock, suppressor, etc. If they destroy it they are being a-holes, and it's their fault if they have failed to update their website, not the sender's.

    There should be no problem then .
    I always thought a rifle was a firearm part so appropriately packaged it should be fine?

    PM on its way to you..............As for the Post Shop. Be honest, tell them it's a two legged thingie for stabilising pipes which your great Aunt Amanda, Bless her soul, left to you in her will and as you don't want it you are sending it to someone you dislike as a belated birthday present. :>)

    The newspaper will assist.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Nope, firearms and ammunition are prohibited items for post and courier

    Well, since gun oil is basically sewing machine oil - sending a few sewing machine parts through the post should give the dogs a 'sit' opportunity or four. What a stupid statement, detector dogs smell gun oil - detector dogs smell everything they only respond to those scents that they are trained to. Every tool that's been used near oil, car bits - sheesh poor bloody dogs would have flat arses if that was the case.

    I don't know how this complies with the consumer guarantees act. If you order something from overseas and you have the appropriate permit. The item is then legal, the delivery service has been paid for (you paid the shipping from overseas). How can they then refuse to deliver a legal item that you have paid them to deliver? Shouldn't you at least get a partial refund for the shipping?

    Naaaa A 14 inch heavy duty "facial massager" that looks suspiciously like a horses penis, lubed and given a protective coating of gun oil and two D cell batteriy sized dog chew toys should suffice quite nicely.....And to make the point write "F_ck off NZ Post " on the "massager"

    I am not aware of any such comment from COLFO and i do keep my ear to the ground........Shakes head and 2 ounces of gravel, 3 bottle tops and a small snail answering to the name of Basil fall out.
