I phoned our Firearm Control Center today and received the wonderful news that my lic has been approved!!!
Now it is the last hurdle of recieving the printed card, which can also take a few weeks. But at least the end is in sight and all the uncertainties are out of the way.
Thank you to everyone who has passed on their support during this most frustrating times!!
Man, I am like a kid who has just graduated from school!!
All smiles and can at long last relax a bit.

One Remy 700 says "FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY, FREE AT LAST.  Great to hear 8.  Don't shoot the barrel out to quick, I'll bet they take a long time doing the paperwork for the replacement.    LOL

Congradulations 8! I know how you feel; like getting your approval letter from the ATF on a class 3 transfer (just not as long or complicated).
Dogger swing by and pick me up for the party at 8's, I'll help you leave Ed behind.

fortunately ammo and reloading components are easy to get. No restrictions to purchase other then having a firearm lic. You also may not have more then 200 rounds per rifle in your possesion. Also only 1 can of reloading powder of approx 1lb.
But it is not a big deal as yet and is not strictly enforced (yet). I guess if you give the police a reason to check (as in being involved in an accident or shooting), they would then check.
The actual reloading equipment, dies, presses etc is uncontrolled.
 
Thanks for all your well wishes. I definately want to upgrade to 1 shot pretty soon!

How bad is it to bring in a firearm to hunt with for one of us? Or is that allowed?
