    Farmlands

    Not sure if this is the right place for this

    CHANGES TO AMMUNITION AND HUNTING SALES AT FARMLANDS




    From 1st December 2020, new legislation states that any person managing a business which sells ammunition must have a current firearms licence*.**

    Farmlands has made a tough decision to move away from selling ammunition and hunting supplies, due to:*

    The ongoing cost of maintaining staff firearms licences*

    Compliant storage facilities in-store and in the homes of license holders*

    Risk of personal fines for non-compliance. **

    To comply with this incoming legislation and clear our existing stock, there will be 25% off ammunition until 30th November.*

    Farmlands understands the convenience of being able to purchase ammunition and hunting items when shopping and we thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of your co-operative. We will be in touch soon with how Farmlands can ensure your hunting and ammunition supplies are taken care of through our Farmlands Card Partners. **


    John Campbell*
    General Manager*Sales and Retail

    Also note that ammunition sales and quantities are to be recorded along with the fal of the purchaser in the new ammendments.**

    The link didn't copy I should have checked. It gets worse
    Ammunition
    New provisions relating to the sales, purchase and possession of ammunition become effective in December 2020.

    Ammunition Possession
    Ammunition Sellers


    From December 2020 any person who is managing a business that includes the sale or supply of ammunition and who is not the holder of a dealer’s licence needs to be recognised by Police as an ammunition seller.

    That means the person must have a current firearms licence, and apply to Police if they wish to start or continue a business as an ammunition seller. This is so Police can verify the person’s security – such as appropriate facilities to ensure the secure storage of the ammunition – and record keeping arrangements are satisfactory.

    An ammunition book must be kept by the seller / supplier of ammunition to record the name and licence number of the purchaser / receiver and the quantity and type of ammunition (s22D). Records must be retained for 10 years after the last transaction in the book (be it physical or electronic).

    An ammunition seller’s records and stock can be inspected at any reasonable time subject to Police giving seven days’ notice (s22D).

    So if you belong to a club that buys in bulk to pass the savings on to its members your committee just got a shit more work to do

    Farmlands will stop selling ammo to farmers to use on their farms. Why am I not surprised. When they stopped selling cyanide they at least had a good reason (someone almost died). This is just Govt BS interference for no logical reason.

    Wasn't it police that approved the sale of ammunition to Tarrant? So they fuck it up, and we pay the price.

    The additional administrative burden to the businesses that sell ammunition will be a significant cost to business. I would expect the cost of ammunition to increase accordingly as it is a user pays world we now live in. The stupidity of the legislation that has brought this upon us does not escape me. I predict that there will be some on line ammo supply businesses up for sale soon. Watch this space.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Or it means that instead of being able to buy 1 pack of ammo as you can just go get another packet when you need it you will have a bulk lot on the property. Then you get broken into instead of getting one pack they end up with.....

    Had great hopes for Farmlands when I became a shareholder 10 or more years ago. Overall, they have lost the plot though, probably around the time of amalgamation.

    A farm supply outfit not selling ammo, sheez.

    FarmSource is my go to supplier nowadays, despite me not being a Fonterra fan.
