    Some knowledgeable bugger just bought a scope from overseas, no permit needed. If under $1k it just comes straight in.

    Correct, you no longer need any permit to bring in a scope. If under $1000NZD you won't pay GST or import duty, but if over $1000NZD they'll sting you.

    You did need a permit initially. I suspect police were happy to make things as difficult as per their usual M.O. this has changed for scopes, I subdue to the volume of work generated that only a complete idiot could see coming.

    You didn't need a permit, then you did need a permit, then you didn't need a permit again.....not sure if we back up to need one again.....Police seem super slow on permits after being pretty good last 12 months
