Qld Weapons Licencing needs a rocket.

My cousin applied for his licence in February, and finally got it about two weeks ago. Two delays, first one was lost paperwork, second was confirming some details. Both their mistakes. He had to ring to find out why the delay, they never contacted him on either occasion. Hopeless, for a service we are paying for.

But the PTA's he applied for were not done, and he had to wait further. After 7 months!!! Anyway, it was only another week, so not too bad. The PTA's are for rifles held by me and my father. Dad has my cousins grandfathers BSA .22lr, and I have a BLR that we bought for him as a 50th birthday present (you are right in what you are thinking - I am a good bloke :lol: )

So we arranged to go to a gun shop in Brizzy to do the transfers, and buy him some cleaning gear. So he gets to my place and I get his BLR out of my safe, and put it in his gun case ( I bought him that too - told you I was a good bloke :allegedly: ). Then I said to him "Better check the PTA's", so he gets them out. The one for the BSA looks good. The next one was not:

Make : Browning
Action : Bolt
Serial number : Completed!!!!!!!! :o
Model : Leupold

I ask him about the serial number, and he says their is no way he filled it out. As an aside, anyone that has been to Rebel Gun Works in Brizzy will no doubt have seen their humorous sings in the shop on the subject. :D

And the serial number was wrong. Bad. We were stuffed. But that number looked familiar...……

Weapons Licencing has looked at the seller (me) and have looked for the rifle to get the details. But I have 3 BLR's and they have used the wrong one. Not that they should be doing that in my opinion. So we abandoned our trip, and realised it would have been worse if we had got to Brisbane before figuring out they had stuffed it up.
