NZ post will inform customs , and customs would then do their thing via NZ post . Then one of them would say the parcel was here , and import duty was X . SO , I pay one of them the duty and Then the rifle would just sit there because NZ post wont deliver it .
    So, what I dont know is . Will one of them say thanks for the money , drive up to Auckland , go to airport , knock on shed 32 door and ask nicely , or what ?
    Your rifle will be taken off the plane and sent to the Auckland International Mail Centre, 9 Laurence Stevens Drive, Māngere, Auckland 2022 - about a two minute drive from the Airport. Pay the Duty/GST, send them your Permits and go pick it up from there. You can also authorise someone else to uplift on your behalf, who can then take to a Dealer to ship to your local Dealer but you'll need to have an S43a form.
    In longrange riflery, trajectory is the pure science part. Gravity is a constant for our purposes.
    Wind is in the art department.
    Light is pure fucking voodoo.

    DHL courier shouldn't hand it off to nz post unless they dont have drivers in your area, we get lots of things from them and they handle everything
