    Sorry guys I couldn't resist quoting him. Wonder if he has any of the type of guns on the LIST?
    I have four guns, two pumps and two semis, that are named on the NZ list.

    Your joy and anticipation of being able to smugly say "I told you so!" will however be short-lived as none of them have non-detachable magazines holding over 5 rounds. They are all legal in New Zealand.

    Instead of depending on reality TV shows and the CSSA for your information you can go to the source:

    Can a hunter still use a semi-automatic shotgun with six or more shots during the game bird season?

    Semi-automatic shotguns are now prohibited firearms except for those with a non-detachable tubular magazine capable of holding no more than 5 cartridges.

    Prohibited firearms cannot be used without an endorsement and permit.

    Is a two cartridge magazine extender on the end of a three shot fixed tubular magazine still lawful for a semi-automatic or a pump action shotgun?

    Yes, provided the magazine(s) cannot hold a total of more than five cartridges (commensurate with the firearm’s chamber size).

    Can I use a semi-automatic shotgun with a tubular magazine capacity of five 3 ½" cartridges in light of the fact it could hold six 2 ¾" cartridges?

    The magazine capacity is measured commensurate with the firearm’s chamber size. If the firearm is chambered for 3 ½ inch cartridges and is capable of holding no more than five of those cartridges, then it is not a prohibited firearm and can still be used with a standard firearms licence.

    Would it be illegal to put six 2 ¾" cartridges into the above firearm?

    You should use cartridges that the shotgun is chambered for. The intent of the changes to the Act is to restrict shotguns to five cartridges.

    Would it be illegal to put five 2 ¾" cartridges into the above firearm in light of the fact it could hold another cartridge?

    That is within the intent of the Act.

    Can parts and accessories used with newly prohibited semi-automatic shotguns be removed from that gun and used with legal semi-automatic shotguns?

    Not if the part is a prohibited part.

    Can I use a pump-action shotgun?

    Provided is not a pump action shotgun that:

    Is capable of being used with a detachable magazine; or
    Has a non-detachable tubular magazine capable of holding more than 5 rounds.
    What instructions are being given to Police working with Fish and Game rangers on opening day?

    We will be taking an educational approach to engaging with duck shooters and rangers.

    Does the new law affect the shotgun ammunition I can use?

    No

    It is scarier than a Liberal majority being able to make the decisions?

    I noticed! Given what I have spent on my Weatherbys, I could sell them all and not cover the first one I bought.

    It's a scary list, I have quite a few on there that would have to be ........(you may assume the rest of that sentence)
