    A friend of mine had just landed a Barrett M82 when the law changed, took him a year to line up all the paperwork and now he’s turning it in without even having the change to shoot it.

    The other concern is being caught in some dragnet because they incorrectly recorded the serial number of your rifle. I mean it's not like the NZ police have any history of deciding who's guilty and...

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    Just so that it's clear where I stand, I don't believe that there is room for transwomen that have gone through male puberty in women's sport. In most cases the advantages they gain in height, muscle...

    Trans people already have a lot of personal issues to resolve, I personally can't imagine how hard it would be to be born into a body that didn't 'fit' the person I was. To be top level athlete you...

    Doesn't make sense, we create protected categories around age in sport, and there is the protected category for women based on gender, what needs to happen is that it gets shifted to biology with a...

    The fact that the only ‘proof’ of his existence is a book written many years after his death by people who never met him, means that there is plenty of room for argument. If there were any supporting...

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    Given the circumstances, I tend to agree. The people attending these 'events' are making an ill informed choice and exposing themselves to a lot of un-necessary attention.
