I made a mistake in NSW PTA applicationn

Post by rookie » 27 Jan 2019, 8:19 am

Hi guys,

I've just submitted my first NSW PTAs (3).

1. Rimfire
2. Centrefire
3. Shotgun

On application 2, on the question "Do other licence holders store firearms at this address?" I marked yes, when it should have been no (like I did on the other two applications).

Do you guys have any advice whether I should do anything / if I can do anything? I was going to call FAR on Tuesday?

I've already put a deposit down on a rimfire, so really want application 1 to go through and hoping 2 doesn't stuff it up.

Cheers.

I think they would love corrections to ensure they have the right info Just tell them. Nothing to worry about

I would expect a visit from the AFP, probably with the bomb squad in tow. Likely they will be carrying a death warrant signed by the Queen.

Nah it'll be all good. They're actually very reasonable most of the time. Might need to put in a new application though, but as the others said, just call and ask.

Thanks fellas,

It does sound like your experience is that NSW FAR are reasonable - I mean, if we could fix an error and save everyone involved more work, waiting and possibly money, I’m sure they’d be onboard.

But these days with it all becoming electronic, I just don’t know if they have the same flexibility as they would’ve with paper based applications... this was my reason for asking if anyone has had to do a correction in this ‘digital’ way of doing things

I’ll give them a call - worse case they have to reject it and I’m up for another $30 .. but I’d rather they reject it now and we get it sorted than wait the 28 days ... (I wasn’t sure if I should leave it if it’s an inconsequential question .. but you’ve convinced me otherwise)

Will let you know what they say

Hope everyone has enjoyed their Australia Day weekend! Bloody brilliant
