Get ready for the blame game…
Some of the boys at the State titles were telling me the pallet had both rifles AND pistols on board, several hundred guns.
That’s definitely not good. Although, with the state of surveillance I’d imagine it would be a pretty freaking hard disappearing act to perform. Cameras would pick something up, not like you can walk out with a pallet in your pocket.
It’s going to mean far stricter conditions for transporting firearms commercially, in turn will make shipping costs higher.
My dealer advised me to always get any firearms I buy shipped to him on a Monday. That way they are in transit at all times and not left in a depot over the weekend.
My local had a rifle they sent disappear in transit several years ago, it was knocked off by a worker in an Australia Post sorting centre, The gun was stashed on site to be collected later but he got busted as he was one of only a couple of people who had a key to the room it was stashed in lol.
It was only noticed because my lgs notified them of the missing gun and in the end called the cops on Aust Post as they weren’t treating it seriously. Cops raided the centre and found the gun & worked out who took it. The bloke got an all paid holiday for several years for it i believe.
Maybe it was Jeff Epstein
