We have been advised that Superintendent Russell Barrett is moving from his post as Registrar and will be replaced by Superintendent Pauline Kostiuk. We would like to extend to Russell our thanks for his efforts and cooperation with us as Registrar and wish him well in his new job.

Licence Renewals and Permits to Acquire

Just a reminder that all you need to do to have the Guild sign them as the Act requires, is send them with the information required by Registry to the Guild at PO Box 2976, Cheltenham, 3192. Enclose a stamped addressed envelope to Registry and we will sign it and send it on for you. Remember that your PTA needs to include the following – details of the firearm being purchased, the licence number on which it is being purchased and your collecting theme.
