Still waiting for the PTA (online) after a week. Normal?

Post by thunderbird » 30 Jan 2019, 4:33 pm

Submitted the PTA online on 24 Jan, status is still being processed. Just wonder how long does it take normally? It is not my first PTA (got a 9mm pistol a few years ago). I thought it should be no delay (no 28 days cooling off) for the non-first PTA? Or it needs 28 days because I am getting a rim fire pistol this time? Or simply just because police is slow? :lol:

Your having a laugh, yeah ? Add in Aust day and a day to recover from that (if they did not actually extend the weekend a couple of days with "owed time" + the dead brain cells that now impede the office staff from the obligatory Aust day celebrations - hell - you might as well have put it in yesterday....

I put in my first PTA's (NSW ) 3 days after you thunderbird and still have a week and a half cooling off - let us know how your situation progresses.

What category were yours? ..

The FAR is a joke.
My first lot of PTA's were bang on the 28 day waiting period till issued, but the in took 4 weeks for them to turn up in the mail.

I'm waiting for another one now. I applied and it was issued in a few days but now it's been 2 and a half weeks since issue and it still hasn't shown up in the mail box yet.
