It has taken FIVE MONTHS and a lot of futile paperwork for
my Hogue rubber grips to arrive from USA for my Ruger SP 101 - Well,
it actually took less than two weeks - the rest of the four and a
half months was simply bureaucratic delay..

Paula, I hope that you find time to read this: PERMIT TO IMPORT RESTRICTED AIRGUNS/FIREARMS/RESTRICTED WEAPONS/PARTS: I lodged my Application for a restricted item 'electronically' with the Christchurch District Police Headquarters Firearms Office on .. 11 November 2016 A permit 1704106 was eventually Issued - after FOUR MONTHS . dated 08 March 2017 I then ordered & paid for this restricted item from USA which I was informed was landed and intercepted by Customs: Notice reference 17G0059 dated .. 17 March 2017 I immediately mailed the top copy of the Permit to Import together with a copy of my Endorsed Firearms Licence XXXXXXXX as demanded.. and on the morning of 10 APRIL 2017 I found on my doorstep a "no signature required" package containing this Restricted Item. _______________________ So it has taken FIVE MONTHS and a variety of official paperwork for me to obtain ... A soft rubber after-market grip for my target shooting revolver. - This 'dangerous' item is then left on my door step! My suggestion here is that all of this is totally fruitless, unnecessary and wasteful - Surely the only items that need to be 'Restricted' are firearms parts bearing a Serial Number such as Barrels & Frames / Actions.. as this used to be the situation here in NZ.
