I just moved here to NZ, so I went to the main police station in Palmerston North and enquired about bringing my rifles and shotgun over,
I was gobsmacked at the helpfullness and friendliness of the copper that willl deal with it for me.
He gave me advice how to get them here and when to get them sent over.
It is supposed to take 8 weeks to apply for a FAC here, but he said it will take 4 as he reckons I shouldn`t be without my guns too long !!!
I have to get 2 references 1 will be a friend of mine who is a Kiwi and lives close, the 2nd reference can be my wife ! can be good thing or bad thing I suppose
When I mentioned my mates name he said " oh his daughter went to school with my daughter, if you too are mates then I better get you some hunting sorted out ,what do you want to hunt and where ?"
I did ask him what could I own when I get my NZ FAC.
His reply was "anything you want to buy!"
I like it here even more now
Will keep you all posted how it goes.
