Default Sharing my unseemly joy

Hey gotta share this with you guys - as I KNOW you'll be able to appreciate it (instead of having people look at you like you have two heads lol)

I got my firearms licence applications approved today Woohoo! Went down to the Motor Registry, got (not too bad, for once) pics taken, all done & dusted.

I am now the proud posessor of 2 (count 'em, 2) Firearms Licences!

A [rimfire]/B [centrefire] = longarms and

H = handgun

Both for target shooting only, of course


after almost 4 months of bureaucratic paper-shuffling. I am truly amazed and incredibly stoked. Since I had to admit to a brief sojurn in *cough* mental hospital - OK it was 21 years ago! - but since our Martin-Bryant-inspired laws, well I wasn't very hopeful.

Bloody glad I was wrong there


And yes, the longarms licence may well only be for single-shot bolt actions, but I don't care lol

Congrats Zhuk! I can't imagine living under such opression. I didn't realize things were THAT bad down under. We're in for the gun rights fight of our lives soon here in the USA.

Well god forbid you should ever get to the stage we are...not that our laws were ever as relaxed as the US in the first place...but we did lose semi-autos back in '96. All I can say is FIGHT THA POWER!

Glad to see you lasted through all the crap. I think they put most of it there to discourage people from jumping through all the hoops because your knees start to hurt after a while of jumping and then getting down on them to well I will stop there.

I would love to buy a country and make it a law that everyone had to CCW while out of the house.

Congrats! I wish you a long future of enjoyable (and responsible) firearms ownership.

You jumped through all their hoops, now go have a plink and enjoy yourself.

Seriously, if I had to go through all that crap just to get aa bolt rifle I'd probably just lose interest.

Sheesh!

I'm sure that's exactly what the issuing body is counting on, too...

Congratulations! Have you gone to some sites like Gunbroker & such to drool yet? IIRC, you were wondering about a lefty bolt gun at one point; i wish you could order one from a US interweb site. There was a .22 cz something or other on another forum for the longest time, honestly not sure it ever sold.

You should plink some beer/soda cans for old time's sake. 12 oz cans, none of those giant Fosters cans .
