Biting off more than he could chew

A Wellington storeman has admitted a charge of theft in relation to the disappearance of a legally-owned collection of weaponry being shipped from Wellington to Christchurch for later sale.  Amongst the small arms stolen there was also an Oerlikon 20mm anti-aircraft gun.  Perfect for hunting or target-shooting... as long as the target is as big as a plane, that is.  I guess if he put it up for sale on Trademe.co.nz he would've specified 'buyer to collect', because the postage would've been something chronic.
