    Is it renewal or new application?

    If it’s a renewal I saw this which is saying expired licenses are being extended 4 months

    Cool, the last update on the Police website about processing was from early April in level 4 lockdown so that won’t be of much help. Hopefully those other threads mentioned will have more info.

    Just read this off the nz police site.


    Deferral of first time licence and endorsement applications, and the firearms safety programme for first time applicants.

    Be proactive and contact your area Arms Officer A.S.A.P. Ask why you haven't received your licence; be polite but firm and resolute. Also, it's possible, although unlikely, that your licence has gone missing in the post.

    'It has been caught up in a new review/approval system that we are currently implementing.'
    This is the reply.

    When I rang up my AO , which was when the virus first hit. He said all the firearms teams have been sent elsewhere in the police forces to help with the covid issue.

    Im sure my licence was JUST about to be processed too which is the kicker. The police have now said they are concentrating on renewal of existing firearms licences before they get too the new applicants.

    I guess it will be here soon Like I said , im going to give them a couple of weeks and start making noises.

    thats ridiculous !
    a few years back i introduce my chinese workmate to shooting, he was so enthralled he actually did his license test 100k away just to get it quicker. by that stage he had a 22 and a 20gu on hold at the shop. i dont think the ink was dry on his licence before he collected them.

    Thats just bullshit, they have non warranted cops doing the relicensing so no they are not being used else where, its a fob off.

    Just picked my rifle up. The shop owner only had to ring the FAO to check.
