    Fastway (Castaway Couriers)

    Sporting Shooters Association of New Zealand shared a post from Gunz

    We had disturbing news this morning. FASTWAY COURIERS has new bowed to the Liberal Government and the PC Police and will no longer allow any GUNS or GUN RELATED PARTS to be transported by them. Please Boycott these Couriers and any other ones that follow suit. What is next Fishing gear because it kills fish!! As a result all legal Firearms License Holders are the NEW VICTIMS of this tragic TERRORIST event. As a result there may be a delay for unshipped orders until we can find a LESS LIBERAL courier service.

    Gunsnz I just got off the phone with the Genral Manager in Auckland and "DUE TO HEALTH AND SAFETY CONCERNS" they will no longer allow the transport of Firearms and Firearms related parts PERIOD". They are having a meeting in April but the GM said it looks very unlikely they will change their stand and are refunding all my tickets.

    Off topic but GunsNZ is probably the worst firearms store I've ever bought from, the owner is massive douchebag.

    Anyway, we still have Toll willing to ship firearms right?

    Just had a call from Toll that they wouldn't be moving firearms.

    Time to play their game. Not a firearm part any more. I shall refer to things as "hunting tools and accessories" from now on.

    Nothing surprising guys.

    It’s an expected reaction. Once things die down, hopefully they will stop their virtue signalling and actually want some business.

    There aren’t any other options to be fair. Gun owners are screwed.

    Don't think the gun owners are screwed, think the smaller retailers that gave us products that weren't at inflated prices on line are the screwed ones out there. H&F will be laughing all the way to the Bank.

    might have to start a business for the carriage of firearms and ammunition and parts around the south island and have a small boat capable of crossing the strait to pick up from the north island.

    Now would be a good time to start up a courier business to transport firearms and ammunition.

    All the couriers have transported plenty of car axles for me all over the place. What's the problem.

    Good idea but as soon as another courier company sees it is worth it, they will stop being draconian and they will undercut and screw the new buisness over.

    Unless the new business focused solely on firearms (don't think there would be enough to be viable) and got the support of commercial dealers and the public....
