    Nah, it’s cos I told the vetter you were a dodgy bugger.

    Just received a renewal application form from the Police. My licence expires on 15/9/20 but I renewed my licence in March as expected cost to skyrocket and be harder to achieve. My new FAL and old FAL are the same number, so sent a Email to one of the 2 contacts listed on the letter to receive a can not be delivered reply. So sent another to the second contact for a cant be delivered reply again. Now if they cant keep trace of the FAL system how the hell are they going to keep a gun register up to date. I am very tempted to fill in the Hereby surrender my firearms licence form and send the old licence in.

    By FAL number do you mean the date or the FAL number itself as that shouldn't change?

    3mths since putting in my renewal and still nothing been done to process it.
    They told me the backlog is huge and still lots in the que to get done.
    I asked if they planned on doing something as 3mths to wait is criminal. Zero f**ks given by them. They just dont give a rats ass.

    When I also asked if any new applications were being processed, they told me no. All new applications are going to the bottom of the pile and they could be looked at possibly 6mths to 1yr away.

    My son wants to put his application in asap and I asked if he would be able to do the MSC course part of the licence before they process his application. Short answer was No. The MSC needs a police authorisation number for them to invite him to do the course.

    I don't think they liked it when I suggested he will apply in Dunedin as I heard its a lot easier and quicker to get down there....

    Had a call from the cops supposinglyB, yesterday morning. They said that they were just checking the data base and if my information on there was correct. I told them that to talk to me it had to be in an email format as the Police now have pretty much zero respect from the hunting public. I agree with you sir was his reply and I will get on to it with a proper email format. Still waiting ,so I wonder if this is not part of some email scam to keep tabs on us. Any body else had this correspondence from the Police.

    Applied for my renewal just before lockdown, and got interviewed last week. Seemed pretty reasonable all things considered. The arms officer was very accomodating!
