15/11/21 - Got the PTA approval email just a few minutes after that call :)

This is the most infuriating part of the entire licensing and PTA system, we know that all of the information that they need is on computers right in front of them and their checks can be done and the process completed in just a few minutes yet they have wait times extending to months for no good reason that I've ever heard.
To make things worse, as wait times and service are degrading they are bumping up the charges just because they can.

The worst thing about pistols is that you can have one(nobody wants an air) in the first year than unlimited after that. Because according to the government, 2 pistols will turn you into a serial killer. Yet luckily after a year those urges go away.

That is some stupid logic I must say.
