    Im looking at joining up I was a member around 18 years ago & had fun but I think this time mostly for the public liability insurance some private land owners wont give me access unless i have it , I got a e mail from our local branch yesterday seemly you need to attend 4 meetings before you can hand in your form & have a proposer & a seconder..so basically takes 4 months before you can officially join is that standard or do clubs make up there own rules ? the local pistol club have a cool range better then the nzda one by a long shot , wonder if they have liability insurance mite look into that.

    I think it's a local thing. When I went along to the Te Awamutu branch, a couple of guys there offered to propose and second me on the spot.

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    That's a good idea but for some reason none of the membership forms can be downloaded not sure if its my computer or what.

    It's not just you. Even if you DO manage to download their form, it's in a fucked up uncommon format.

    Yeah, don't imagine many people are going to be able to open .WIZ documents lol. I've sent them some contact suggesting they change to something more commonly used such as .PDF

    Yeah, this is a branch by branch rule. We sort of do the same thing at ours but dont get too enforcing about it. End of the day the association needs as many members as poss and should not be off putting.
    HUNTS program is a great thing for those newer members less skilled and the PL insurance is a must, I recon.

    No disrespect to members of this forum, but is the odd public spat or difference of opinion that may make an insurer think twice.... (that and NZDA would have a greater membership base?)

    That, and there are other benefits...
