Vz. 58 for Dummies

nzherald.co.nz reports: “Patrick Phipps, 44, a technology support engineer at the Royal New Zealand Police College in Porirua, was found guilty of two charges of illegal possession of a Finnish Velmet semi-automatic and a Czechoslovakian VZ58 automatic rifle following his trial in Wellington District Court today. The guns were found inside the torso and legs of hollow, uniformed mannequins in a locked room at his Johnsonville home. A third mannequin had gun parts hidden in it . . . Phipps told the court yesterday he had never seen the guns before and had no idea they were there. He will be sentenced on Friday.”

    OMG, I just checked my AR and found a uniformed mannequin hidden inside.

    Is it only water that swirls down the drain backwards in New Zealand?

    Were they assault rifles or (50 year old) modern sporting rifles?

    He has still got illegal weapons buried in plastic duct pipes in his garden.
