    Hey @Rushy, yes I did do it a few years ago (designed and did most of the paper work for cert).
    I think most of my knowledge would be out of date now.
    Prob the big issue with the range will be the fence(looking to butt's, on the right side) and the height above the cone of fire at the butt's.

    I'll give you a call this week for a chat.....

    If they go with what the Military uses check out JSP 403 (version 12) I think they are up to but remembering yours is a private range and from what can be gathered Police are nowhere near ready to implement a lot of what has been signalled/legislated.

    Can't attend a range without a vaccine passport. Must shoot twelve time a year to retain your B endorsement.

    Good plan. Sleeping dogs will be left to lay and hornets nest will remain unpoked.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I suspect it is coming from Pistol NZ and club committees don't want to rock the boat.
    Funny thing is, they stated it is ok to attend the range for important activities such as range maintenance or mowing lawns etc.
    I may have spotted a loop hole (for anyone in that position) .

    WPC have instituted a separate day for people with/without vx PP. it was a club directive that was in response to members' requests about group numbers and the pre booking system. a compromise for those that need to do their 12...or is it 9 this year due to lockdown. can you pm me the loophole @7mmwsm as i know a couple of people between a rock and a hard place.cheers

    That range manual is now out of date and a new one will be released soon, the new manual is about 100 pages.

    I was being a bit smart with the loophole comment. If they are allowed to attend working bee's, mow lawns etc, just have a lawn mower or building gear in the ute when they go to the range.

    Pistol NZ have been making noises about the National Competitions requiring jab/passes due more to the numbers but it will be up to individual Clubs whether they implement the pass system.

    Greetings All,
    I have a bench rest on our small block from which I can shoot 60 and 200 metres. Currently I am planning to re orient it to make use of a larger hill face as backstop and also include some sound baffling. Our property consists of a small valley so there are options that I need to investigate. Will keep you posted.
    Regards Grandpamac.

    At the time, PNZ was the only recognised certifiers.
    Dont know if its still operating but the Kaikoura PC would have been certed maybe 30 yrs ago, all with natural typography no man made structures.
    Marlb PC would have passed as well, due to the angle of the back drop but we built sturctures and drainage anyway. That was early 90's as well.

    Not quite. WPC (Waiuku Pistol Club) doesn't require a vaccine passport. (Did initially.)
    Last email sent out to members -
    Based on the latest update and guidelines from PNZ, Sporting NZ and the re-worded Covid Framework from the NZ Govt. we will no longer be requiring the use of Vaccine Passes
    This is great news as it means we can continue to make the club available to all members.
