    After Sept 25 any renewals will mean the FAL will be for a 5yr period instead of the usual 10yrs.
    You should send that to kiwi gun blog. I believe the act says first application is 5 years and 10 years for renewals after.

    EDIT - Checked arms act. If it's a renewal for non expired license its 10 years.

    Yes, I have been in contact with Mike.

    Was also made very clear to me by the AO that if I didn't comply with whatever they asked for I would have my application refused

    I suspect that will be the norm until someone with deep pockets challenges them on it and they get slapped down in court. Again.

    They have been monitoring this site and kiwi gun blog for years.

    The bro in law who did his application back in march emailed them the other day for an idea when he might see the vetting part done. Did the test and was due a visit when it all went to shit. New application and never had a FAL before.
    Basically saying what we all know, about doing renewals first yada yada, it will be yonks etc, Finished off with a bit snarky "this is non negotiable".
    WTF? why even say that. Lets face it, I can albut guarantee you it will be a form letter response so someone else out there might have the same thing, but he was only asking.

    This is a fundamental thing we should ALL be doing at the slightest whiff of unfairness, order inconsistency, unreasonableness or failure in the licensing process.

    The simple reason is that it creates an auditable record of Police's failings in the administration of the Arms act. No senior Management likes bad stats against their accountabilities, and politically (especially after Chch) Police should be bending over backwards to ensure they're on top of this. But they're not.

    Every chance you get, fill in this form.

    I have my practical and theory test in 3 weeks. Someone told me that I must know the 7 rules of firearms safety "word for word". Is this true? I can rattle off all the rules off the top of my head, but not verbatim.

    nearly seven months since i paid the renewl fee and waiting.
    if its fair for the vetters/cops to remind me its covid and the terrorist that caused the changes/delays .
    its fair for me to remind them that if vettted properly under the old rules retardo montalban would never have got a licence.
    ps they cant make your referee travel according to the ashburton arms officer the file can still be sent to your referees local office

After a couple of phone calls and an email a very nice lady contacted me to apologise for not being in touch sooner, confirm they had received it and the vetting officer would be in touch. He called me within a few days to arrange a time to suit both me and my wife. Less than a week later he was round to interview me and my wife and check my security. He didn't over step his authority and was friendly and efficient. He had over an hours drive to my place and visited after we had got home from work. He had already been to see the club secretary.
    He said the file would be reviewed but could see no problems and hoped my card would be with me in 2 to 3 weeks. He said to allow a month just in case.
    He did say they did have a backlog of renewals but they had cleared most of it now.
    I must say I'm impressed and pleasantly surprised after hearing of the problems others are having. Really can't say enough good about the arms office in Whangarei.
    I received my new card today, just over 3 weeks after the visit from the vetting officer.
