    Mail Order Firearm Form

    Just been informed by local Police that all Mail Order Firearms forms are being processed by Wellington Arms Office only and seller is informed from Wellington.

    Got the same from the arms officer yesterday.

    This might help in working out how long you have to wait:

    Doesn't help much if none of the courier companies are carrying firearms.

    Local station said Wellington had been handling it since the 18th March even though they weren't informed until today.

    So day four still nothing from the AO, usually is a 2 day turn around. Looks like they are just sitting on them.

    Meant to be processing them. They have a huge pile and a new office. I was told "don't worry for three days" yesterday. Mines been in for two weeks. Already cleared by my AO then sent on to be done again by new central office.
