Has anyone here gotten hostile feedback from Will's Fishing and Firearms?

He was really rude to me and expected some sort of apology(not sure why).

When I explained what I was doing he told me not to contact him again.

That's a bit rich coming from him, and I wouldn't be surprised if he was defensive because he plans on taking part in the confiscation.

If that's true Hunting and Fishing won't be the only ones due for a boycott.

I've met Will in person before and he was polite to me, although he did make some pretty racist statements, which isn't cool.

I bought some boots off him a month ago and one of them fell to bits within 5 days.
Iím too scared to take them back 😂😂

Aside from that though, he has a reputation as a good bloke. Apparently heís a bit grumpy lately. MSSAís used to put the food on his plate.

Hows your protest going. Are semi-autos legal again?

Do try to keep up with the play Carlsen. latest is that participating firearms shops are going into receivership in droves through loss of business.

It's going quite well, actually. I've had some good interactions so far, and I'm only just getting started.

If you're seriously expecting major results this quickly, you might want to stick to playing checkers. Chess is clearly out of your league.

Ignore me. Probably best you're doing this than something else.

Okay, so there's been a development on this topic. Gun City Auckland and Hunting & Fishing Franklin(Pukekohe) have agreed to participate in the "buy-back." While that is disappointing, there are 14 firearms dealers in the Auckland area. That means 12 of the 14 told the police to piss off. It seems our emails have been getting through to the gun dealers. Let's keep them coming to all the other dealers around the country, and ensure that as few as possible agree to take part. If you haven't already sent an email to the addresses listed above, please do so now. If you have, be aware that I've added a couple new emails to the list. Here are the new addresses to send your email to: picton.sports@xtra.co.nz; jeremy.stuart@guncity.co.nz

Thanks,
Kiwigunguy

Good on Gun City and Hunting and Fishing in Pukekohe.

Many people wanted to be able to hand in their guns via a dealer and now they have that opportunity.

I'll email them today thanking them for making the process easier for shooters.

Thanks for the heads up.

Would you hand property in for destruction on the premise that it is valued later and you have no say in it?
I sure wouldnít.
It should be valued at hand in. Period.

That's the bit that was staggering to me. A more suitable way to obey the law than the public spectacles is needed, going to a dealer who you often know and trust seems a good option - but this is as if they are trying to discourage that alternative. On top of that, its a maximum of 3 firearms and I think 5 parts per firearm? That seems overly restrictive too.

Wonder how long before the option is available elsewhere.

There is a major issue here, in that those planning this process dont understand their audience very well.

Why would you want to buycott H&F? Itís not the store owners fAult. Personally Iíve spent over 10 k in new guns since March 15 at my local store. I get looked after.
