The NSC has fought hard on the proposed NSW FAR reclassification on the Adler and Berika straight pull shotguns.

Our efforts have paid off!

The latest update is below:

Great news, I noticed SIFA had uploaded an article on LinkedIn. Did they have any hand in assisting with this?

Isn't it about time we get some gun rights?

Every organisation comes out of the woodwork to proclaim they had a hand in it. The term "working behind the scenes" gets used a lot. But its code for "we did F all and are just claiming the credit".

Seems about right. At least with what I've seen.

Good work to the NSC. I particularly like the part where the response from NSW Firearms was zero in regards to what qualifications their reclassifying staff have. I suspected as much.

boink - What "qualifications" would the reclassifying staff need, or should have?

Not poking the bull, just curious!

Armourer, firearm instructor, etc; would be two that come to mind as far as qualifications to examine, asses and categorize a firearm!

Or at least a standard procedure for identifying cross checking, measuring and field testing and hazard identification would be a start.

Id be surprised if they've even got that covered.
