    Mm that does make sense for the moment. I firmly believe they will cater to the massive "tikka t3 7mm-08" market in South auckland who just want to sight in their rifles a couple of times a year If not then that's the club's loss to be honest.. Because having a viable option for these hunters who want to sight in their rifles and maybe go practice a couple of times a year is big money to the shooting club, as there are a ton of people I know who are in that category. So why not cater to those people as well as the ones who shoot pistol/Rifle weekly. Even though there may not be an option like that at the moment, Im still pretty excited because I'm sure they won't be stupid enough to not make that option available to us south auckland hunters

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    There were 850 people applied or expressed an interest. The first 300 memberships have been offered and it will be capped at 500. First in first served.

    If you haven't already applied and been offered membership already, you will be waiting for years before being invited. Especially those who declined membership when offered.

    Hopefully they will run some Level 3 IPSC matches to make a trip up there worth while.

    is there a reason they are limiting membership? or is it an initial intake with another later?

    200 after July 1st, with a cap of 500 until they can work out range use vs land use/consent something along those lines

    only 6 of the 30 planned ranges will be ready at opening.
    but good things take time

    Fuck trying to manage a club with 500 members. You would need a full time secretary or admin officer like Pistol NZ has.

    Or throwing considerable money at automation. eg a database with time based alerts on subscription expiration.

    CPC has nearly that and growing, committee manages just but it is becoming a large workload. Heavy investment in IT systems has made life a little easier

    Like Rushy said this is a pistol / shotty / short range rifle type of club.

    We need places like this so the next time the world masters are on, Auckland doesn't end up looking like a lame duck once again. Just a pitty the fees are astronomical imo

    I got my invite and asked for it to be passed to the next in line.
    Don't have any guns here in Auckland - yet.

    Will sign up on the next intake and start working on my pistol license..... sometime.

    I have to agree with @Tommy on this one. when you consider the cost of setting up $500 is not bad. I would definitely join but I just cant see myself using it much in the next year or so.
