    Storage requirements.

    It keeps eroding peoples confidence.

    There has been several instances of it. I had to laugh when ron mark at the colfo debate called them incompetent in their administration of the act.
    Hold the phone...Skidmark called someone incompetent. Takes one to know one, I suppose.

    Don't fret, guys..the document refers to "Firearms Storage GUIDANCE", not requirements. For me, I want to make it as difficult as possible for a ninja to access my firearms. Good stout construction, bolts and screws inaccessible, keys, ammo and bolts secured in other parts of the house.

    Part of the issue is that you can allow for every situation, and I know of a couple of instances now where kids have unscrewed the trigger guard on a firearm in a rack and sodded off with it leaving the triggerguard locked up securely.

    Against that, the standards are pretty bloody arbitrary - the difference between a 3mm steel safe to 16mm mdf that you can break apart with a table knife is huge levels apart. I am not sure why they arrived at 3mm steel - the Police lock boxes in the cars are about what a good old-fashioned locker is made of (not the new fangled tissue steel ones). I dunno, seems to me a lot like they are filling time in before the new agency takes over and would be glad to see the back of it. More trouble than it's worth maybe?

    I wouldn't count on another agency taking over soon or for quite a few years yet. It's going to cost multitudes of millions to set up and as we all know, the country isn't rolling in spondoolies.
