    thanks heather

    just went to the police station to fill in my 1st mail order form since some tv reporter named heather decided to break several laws but got off scott free and we are the ones that got the punishment which we are all well used to now when anyone dose something dumb

    what used to take 5mins now takes 20min with all the extra info needed and then they have to snail mail it to the arms office who ok's it
    what a hassle lol

    thanks heather really appreciate your good work....... not

    firearm details,
    I needed my firearms licence, address, phone numbers email, drivers licence or 2nd form of id, and other info to that ive never needed

    and its got to be sent to the arms office to be signed off apparently before getting sent to him

    That drivers license bit isn't necessary, they have a box on there for kids or airguns or whatever

    I'd be pretty surprised if she came up with the story.

    Have to say it's easier and faster now at our local station, they email it to our AO, who checks/signs it off, and emails it to the seller. Only extra info needed is a couple of details about the seller and their email address which you get through trademe etc anyway.

    Most people selling airguns dont seem to bother about needing the mail order form to verify age, it is interesting that the Police form states that it is the only way to take reasonable steps to ascertain age or FAL. I also have no idea how their restricted airgun system works, being any airgun that looks like a pistol, that kind of reads like anyone buying an air pistol off tardme has to belong to some sort of club?

    Edit, ok that is from a licensed firearms dealer, still kind of strange

    I had it sent through to me in as little as 45 mins when I bought my AR. All depends on your AO I think. In the Welly office they seem to be pretty quick, I'm currently waiting on the Chch office to approve a seller and email me their form, that should be tomorrow apparently.

    Within a couple of days for me. Was faster than the old system, hence why I thought it was a good thing! Lol

    I own 2 pcp airguns which are classed as firearms so you need a licence to own so i think thats what they mean by restricted airguns allso i think full auto bb guns can be brought /used now maybe them too
