    I mean if you look in my truck I am sure if you looked hard enough you could find a live round or 2 rolling around in the dash or under the seats and that would mean my wife could effectively be in possetion of ammo as a non licence holder WTF
    yes she can be...it has been this way for quite some time....Ive always said if I was to vist someone in prison I would have to get local copper to search my car first as there is bound to be a few rounds floating around and definately a knife or three.

    You want to find a definition of part in the Arms Act? Ha.

    Try finding a definition of how each 'part' must be indelibly marked. That little fuck around refers you to about 4 different sections each referring to something different that doesn't relate to marking of parts. The legislation is a total embarrassment and an utter joke, if that is the best the bloody woman can come up with whikle claiming she's doing it to save the population don't expect any deals on maori land, housing prices, land shortages, council governance issues or climate change any time soon. That sheila is all sad looks and cheap talk, there ain't no substance behind the rhetoric at all unfortunately.

    The more you delve into the changes to the arms act here, the more unworkable and the more convoluted and disjointed it is. The end result is the entire time the powers that be, will be trying to comply with their own rules head down arse up trying not to fuck things up and they will not be head up looking where it's going. And that is how accidents are made!

    Have to agree with this one. I'm based in Taranaki and spend a fair bit of time in the Hawkes Bay. Only the Bell Block farmlands had any significant range of ammunition. The others had a couple of pack of 22, maybe 223, 303 & 308. The amount if shotgun ammo depended on how close duck shooting was.

    They didn't have enough to make it worth going in there to look for ammo. Not their core business or interest.

    Bell Block only has a decent range of ammo because one of their staff is ex H&F. It's his interest.

    If we had all bought more ammo from farmlands, maybe they would have kept selling it.

    But it was never their main business, and it's become too much work and too expensive for them

    Another one bites the dust. A great example of changing ammunition available bymaking things expensive rather than illegal. easier to get under the radar

    Im pretty happy with Farmlands. Been a member since '75. Recently got a good discount off a Ford Ranger - over and above trade or fleet discount.

    I watch their specials and pick up some good deals on stuff I need (and don't need).

    And Ive always wondered why they bothered with ammo given the hassle for a small turn over.

    so....if you unemployed or finding current job not quite cutting the mustard you COULD go to farmlands/wrightsons/ITM and say you have FAL and would love to work for them......it might be the little bit extra that gets you the job.

    I think it's a bit harsh blasting farmlands for making a financial decision. They are getting screwed by legislation changes just like us.

    We gave in our farmlands account recently, their service was turning to shit, they didn’t want to order stuff in and when they did they either ordered the wrong thing or it was faster to drive to another area yourself and pick it up, I heard great they took over CRT’s systems after they went under/bought out? They really only seemed to care about lifestyle blocks and horses, gone to another supplier now

    Tend to agree with nickbop. Ammo is the least of Farmlands issues. They have gone downhill since CRT bought them out. Processes have become far more convoluted, many more middlemen clipping the ticket. May well go elsewhere .

    Farmlands staff moral seems to be at an all time low too. We've been members so long we've got a 3 digit member number starting with a '2'. It's not the same co-operative structure it was when it started, and sometimes we find ourselves going across the road to PGG for better prices. I ordered 200 cyanide pellets through farmlands last week and 10,000 arrived, this is the kind of stupid stuff up that is happening all the time. I suspect Farmlands may be on the way out.

    I hope you are wrong about Farmlands being on the way out. Wrighties did a dirty on us back in the nineties and the only way they will ever get my business is if they are the only option.

    That's a common occurrence there mate.
    Our local farmlands has also taken a turn in the last few years to be fair.
    Seems a bit like walking into a h&f store 10 people behind the counter and no one wants to serve ya.

    Hardly use Farmlands now. Local RD1, sorry, FarmSource prices are comparable plus they are 10 minutes away versus 35 minutes drive for Farmlands.
    Noticeable for some time and given I don't use them much but each visit to Farmlands sees mostly new faces behind the counter. My FarmSource has had the same core of staff for years.

    Their nice things like discounted phone bills are well gone although Spark stopped that.

    One thing that has always annoyed me with my Farmlands is we have to load (overload?) our animal feed on to a trolley, checkout at the counter, take out to our vehicle, unload. FarmSource is drive thru and usually with staff assistance for loading.

    Just wish FarmSource would stock Hansen fittings instead of the poxy brand they sell.

    May be time to cash in my FL shares...
