    So did you reply to them ??
    Not yet but we have to before they will release the three parcels they have there now. I guess they have stopped leaning on their shovels and are making a go of things with the increase in imports leading up to Christmas. Email just said they would like to know if the items were being imported for monetary gain and then had an attachment outlining gst obligations if the items are to be sold etc

    I informed them that just last month I successfully ordered the exact same parts with no issue. "We don't nab them all" the lady said to me.

    Where does it specify in the act about these particular parts requiring conformation and or permits??

    On we go, the never ending story.
    So reading own the page and hearing the experience of others in this regard, it appears that you have a couple of options. Demand a letter from police stating that you do not need a permit to import these firearms parts, and get the facebook response or a helpful letter. The face book response would be the most valuable in proving police are making shit up. The information that you have violated the arms act though importing these parts, should result in a charge and the cancellation of your firearms licence. There can be no other outcome. Either you have broken the law or you haven't. Police do not have a choice. They have to either agree that your parts do not require a permit, or charge you with breaking the law, and thereby admit that they are making shit up again.
    The other option is to walk away and take the loss of the money, parts and shipping, and just accept that police can do whatever they want in the pavlova paradise.

    Nah seriously I don't have a clue about this Victoria's secret. But if you reckon I'm being bad, it might need researching on goggle.
    And the fact that Maca wears Victoria's knickers really has got me scratching my head.

    You and your bloody fetishes Maca. It was you that stole my undies the weekend of the Sika Show wasn't it?
    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

    Possibly, trouble is those in charge most likely have no clue or real world practical experience to be able to make these decisions correctly

    Those won't go through either, in case the firearm in question has an evil bayonet lug!
