    They do a lot, they are the only lobby group to get to the international stage. They never used to talk about stuff but the new crew will talk about there wins going fwd but they don't talk about ongoing stuff.

    Do they do enough? No, do they do a lot for a group of volunteers? Yes.
    Have they made mistakes? Yes, and some of those are very regrettable.
    Are they worth giving a few bucks to? Yes, but also give some to the other party's

    Good topical thread @Beaker. I wonder how many are willing to put money where their mouths are (and not just rant) and support either COLFO or Sporting Shooters (SSANZ) who are at least trying to make headway against the shite which will affect all of us to a greater or lesser degree if not challenged.

    Is there a levy from NZDA membership that goes to COLFO?

    It was the pnz membership form that got me thinking about it a while ago (tick here to donate X $ - can't remember exact amount, maybe $10?)


    In principle I like the idea, however, people pushing own agendas springs to mind. Ie not representing all forms of firearm ownership well.

    Good. I thought so.

    Yeah a lot of organisations have a levy in their membership subs. I am levied thru my pistol club for COLFO which is pretty passive though as you have no choice. If it was a choice I believe many would opt to be not in. I have chosen also though to be a full member of SSANZ which is more expensive than the levy and provides additional funds to those bodies be it COLFO or SSANZ.
