    You have at least six months. Don’t rush.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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

    Sell a great headline from "STUFF" stating "over 2000 illegal firearms" have been handed in, do they mean firearms that were purchased legally and have been offered to surrender for buyback.

    They might have tried to say "over 2000 legally-purchased and -owned firearms now reclassified as illegal" but stuffed it up.

    Theres been no details released about the buybacks yet. Police arent even geared up to take them yet either.
    Dont hand anything in yet or even fill out their form. Wait till more is known

    Do not fill out the on-line form yet. The current one makes no mention of payment so you are effectively surrendering your firearm for no payment . Still think its a good idea to rush in ?

    Had some advice from a real Policeman one that owns and shot AR15's, He said don't fill in any forms, There are some court cases looming that could change things, as usual with these idiots
    that overreact there are mistakes in the new laws so DON'T until the buy back is sorted and you know what you are getting, I would get in touch with your arms officer and get your file and see what
    firearms they have you listed as owning if you are lucky it will be wrong,
    He also said the firearms handed in at his station are all junk not worth anything.

    The rumor is (heard this from a farmer an hour ago) that guns handed in, in good faith, will not be eligible for compensation, even if you filled in the online form. These are the guns handed in before the announced buy back, even if you entered your bank details. This reflects the email sent out by police where A-cat just need to hand in their "illegal" firearms with no mention of compensation, while E-cat states "to participate in the buy back".

    He also said the local engineering firms have been approached to cut up the rifles.

    Yeah it does, it asks for your bank details and asks you to specify whether you are surrendering without compensation (a gun that was illegal already pre ban) or whether its a former A or E cat that is illegible for compensation.

    Well if that's the case it will be changing my view of this country / government / police.... I have never had any major issues with how the country has been run but if as a law abiding citizen I get screwed over.... Well maybe it's time to disconnect the Speedo on my diesel and a few other things...
