It seems a bit random - looking through the above timings, between application and referral it’s all over the place. Not sure whether that’s a reflection of varying issues in applicants’ backgrounds, documentation or just a system that doesn’t process in order of application. A mystery.

Yeh that’s understandable I do have history from my teens and early twenties but I’m 37 now and I have not had so much as a parking ticket for the past 14 years and even longer for scalywag behavior that might subject me to extra scrutiny, but they say 10 years from last offense which is the same time nsw seems a spent charge so there really should be no problem it’s not like I have criminal associates or and a member of a bike club or subject to a fire arm pro aviation order or have and avo out against me.

My PTA arrived today.

As such found my way down to the LGS and picked up my Howa 1500. Scope hopefully will arrive next week. And on a side note it fits perfectly within my Super Cheap Auto Gun case.
