- Don't try to understand either story - best really to just accept them eh.
Mind you - when I am told that the wee revolver has landed in NZ and cleared Customs ( -prrlease!) - then I've got to exchange a pink verification form from my club - for an Application For a Permit to Procure form - and then exchange that for an issued Permit to Procure - this must be transmitted to the Importer for release of that exact item to me - and then I must promptly take that piece of paper (returned & completed by the Importer) together with the new stainless-steel machine in a locked sturdy container - to have it registered on my Police-file after the Firearms Office have eyeballed its serial numbers.
Note: My nearest Firearms Office is one and a quarter hours drive away from home.
But it will all be worth it ... Consider that 'quantum' comes from the Latin 'Quanta' meaning "How great"!
