"Firearm collection events this week in the Waikato "
This week and over the weekend there will be three prohibited firearm and part collection events – two in Hamilton and one in Thames.

The Thames event will be held on Saturday 5 October at the Thames Rugby Club at 455 Ngati Maru Highway from 10am-3pm.
If you can’t make a collection event, firearm holders also have the option of going to their local dealer to hand-in firearms and parts.
Contact your local dealer to make a booking before you go.
Firearm owners can now also apply for compensation if they own a unique prohibited firearm, part or accessory.
Information on criteria, cost and how to apply is now available on the Police website.
You can also modify some prohibited firearms - Police’s website has information on modifications and a list of approved gunsmiths.
