    My local dealer doesn't have this set up with fastways although they're on the list, so I still have no way of shipping firearms.

    Yep, I've had a rifle sent to me from SI to NI both shops were in the network. Went via fastways.

    I've also just sent away another I used a local member of the network and arranged to have them send it to a shop in a town that never had a store that was part of the network.

    The local shop (network member) prefers to use Toll couriers.

    Have had one thru Fastway's and one thru Tolls. Fastways had the Police mail order form in a envelope on the outside. Tolls didn't, they had also removed the word "Gun" off the receiving shops name. System seems to work, main thing with it make sure the shipper sends you the tracking number.

    Make sure you add extra packaging around your firearm as Fastways are rough pricks. They roughed up my latest acquisition, not bad but still damaged a small amount.

    Got one sent from H&F Palmerston Nth to Kelly Country in Brightwater. Such a simple system.
    Shearer - H and F stores are totally excluded from this system - the method of delivery you used was not this Dealer Network. Pleased it worked for you , all the same .

    Give SAI in Auckland the thumbs up, they are doing the right thing, just charging freight costs. Had firearms both sent to and received from Christchurch by SAI, and both times no problems.

    Just watch out as some dealers are really profiteering. I mean I don't mind paying a few dollars in handling fees, after all the dealers are not a registered charity. But one Christchurch dealer whose name doesn't appear on the published list, is really putting the boot in. I was charged $35 on top of the freight cost, for both sending and receiving.

    Despite being a long time customer of this particular dealership, I'll definitely be thinking twice before buying from them again.
