    Anyone else get a note from reloaders Regarding Tikka T3 giveaway?

    Got my catalogue in the mail today from reloaders and found a note slipped into the catalogue which read the following

    "Dear Hunters and Shooters
    By now you will have recieved our 2012 annual catalogue, with a Tikka T3 promotion on the front cover. We have since been informed that this is a breach of the "gaming act" and we can not give away a firearm in place of this rifle prize on Friday the 21st of September 2012 we will offer the lucky winner a in store credit of $1175 to purchase whatever he or she wants from our store. I sincerely apologise for the misunderstanding.

    Kinds regards

    Scott Stonex"

    Bit of a bugger aye but at least there is an alternative to the original prize being offered. Never realized that the gaming act affects a giveaway promotion such as this I thought it only applied to casinos/establishments that have gambling machines and the TAB.

    Also impacts on schools giving away donated booze prizes in fund raising raffles. I.e. they can get told off for doing so.
    Seems alright for SkyCity etc and pokies to fleece the community though.

    Exactly right it is ok to provide to the community something that will empty their bank accounts of its contents in order to try and win money and baiting them with progressive jackpots ETC. Also providing a place for problem gamblers to go and lose everything they own to feed it is morally wrong but i guess the sale of booze and promoting of winning big money to get some poor bastards hopes up is ok in the eyes of the government.

    The booze prizes offered in raffles I do not see a problem with as obviously you would have to prove your age in order to receive the prize, same as the reloaders offer you have to obviously provide a firearms license to receive the prize, but most of all I thought that this sort of thing would have fallen outside of the gaming act and been fully within coverage of the firearms act as it is being offered by a business that holds a firearm dealers license and is the owner of the prize offered.

    In a way the gaming act is hypocritical in what it allows and disallows but the act has to be in place as a set of rules we all have to abide by

    Well, I'm window shopping through the catalogue on what I could spend the $1175 voucher on. Don't really need a new rifle, so the voucher is a damn good idea.
    Those new Loopie VX6 scopes look good. The 1-6x24 would be good on my Vepr.
