Interesting, I am glad I got my "conditional permit" online a month or so ago. I head to Christchurch in about 3 weeks.

You might want to contact someone to make sure they will honor the license you have.

For anyone heading to New Zealand on a hunting trip in the near future, it looks as though the police have temporarily stopped issuing permits. https://www.police.govt.nz/advice/firearms-and-safety/visitors-firearms-licence-and-import-permits
No this is not correct. The new system has been in place for some time now, on-line payment is coming from around late April. The major change is you now have to have a permit to carry ammunition into the country. As we don`t traditionally use military style semi automatic rifles for hunting most will not be affected. I have heard rumours about this including shotguns and standard semi automatic rifles and rim fire, I wouldn't`t be surprised if these are true with the current government but its to early to say and rumours are just that. It`s business as usual just make sure you have a confirmation of your permit, and don`t try and do it at the airport on arrival.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
