Contacted FLO last Friday as my Shotgun Cert expires this Friday and I hadn't received any communication about renewal which was sent in good time. I explained that I use the shotguns most weekends in clay competitions so getting a little concerned. Temporary Section 7 permit received today but I was disappointed to read the following condition:
"1. Not use the shotgun/s but keep them under secure conditions at all times. This permit is issued to enable the disposal of the below weapon/s . Upon disposal of the shotgun/s the permit should be returned to The Chief Officer of Police within 7 days"
I never mentioned that I wanted to dispose of them! Oh well, hear goes another call to the Firearms Unit.
