I pushed' sad' because such bumph & noodledom prevailes in these regions .What are we liable to do with a muzzle loader kit or any muzzle loader ? its just burocratic anti gun twaddle drempt up by mindless & ignorant burocrats.
I once stopped of in Sydney with an original Needle fire Rook rifle & a original Double rifle any child in UK could own Yet Sydney where postivly hostile wouldnt let me take with me & later on return to collect my guns they where seethingly hostile Like I was Bin Laden triede to waffle out of it . But stuff them I persisted .They escourt me to the check in & I land in NZ the customs say ' fine by us & see the police ' I do they say "What you got this time ?" and write me an import permit & off I go . But now we have a loony left govt who dream up all the anti gun feasies they can. No sense just official negativity .Brave New World ? P on it. Oh I queried this nonsence with the Police in Sydney I was told al long guns of any age require a liscence But any pre 1900 pistols was freely collected ? Go figure .But then Each Australian State seems to vie with each other to bring about the silliest laws .I used to keep guns at a cattle Station near Surat then QLD bring out anti gun laws that cost me a flint 40 cal & a Double Rifled 500 3" BP Express by Lang no logical reason just some political ' Look good'' Doing Some thing' cock. The 40 cal flint has London or its original lock & a row of stamped bears on the breach end of the barrel wooded patch bow draggon side plate pretty ropey but was my first rifle I made .& shot a patched picket conical like a 451. It went Via Searles gun shop in Brisbane . mostly curious where it went Regards Rudyard

Mate that would of had to be the local Copper making it up as he went along, when Howards Gun Laws came in Qld never had a problem with BP ML's particularly genuine antiques; nothings changed to this day.
I wouldnt be surprised if the Cop had a vested interest of his own, thinking "what a great find, I can confiscate it, and pick it up myself later). Similar things have happened believe me.
