Police decision-making about the classification of firearms

We’ve recently hit brick walls with the Tasmanian Police when we asked for their written reasons for deciding the Warwick Firearms WFA1 was a prohibited firearm.  A kindly shooter recently applied for documents about Queensland Police Weapons Licensing Branch made decisions and consulted with Australian Customs about firearms classification of straight-pull rifles.  We’ve illustrated their answer.


This is a trend common to Tasmania and Queensland

Which other registries are making it up as they go?  If you have a bizarre classification experience, we’d love to hear it.
