    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.
    warkworth PC, i should have clarified.

    Fully aware of that. My point is if someone doesn't have papers, they wouldn't be able to attend the range to keep their endorsement current.
    I have since received an email stating disregard previous email but stick to distancing recommendations etc.
    My fishing club has gone nazi and won't weigh fish for un papered people now.

    I believe a fella would be wise to just say nothing and carry on....its your land and you are using it in a SAFE &RESPONSIBLE manner...... if you need it certified as a range,you need farm raceways certified as a road....and paddocks as race track if lads are going for a hoon,the horse paddock as a gymcarna if you put two 44 gallon drums and a rail out for kids to jump.....will the hay bale in back yard for bow n arrow need certified next week????
    maybe the lake will need certified before highschool pupils can row upon it too????
    personally I see no difference...its a location used to accommodate a legitimate sporting activity....IF you use it irresponsibly and injure someone,worksafe have jurisdiction. furthermore any bad behavior comes under your FAL so police have jurisdiction if believe you are endangering public. why would anyone other than council ticket clippers want any more control over a "place" belonging to you???

    Micky I have just had a conversation with my range and am happy to advise that it now self identifies as a Pétanque court with steel baubles.

    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

    The range then became a labour of love for me and I built a covered in shed for her to shoot from and after much blood sweat and tears it looked like this:
    Attachment 185158
    That was up until the end of August when a major weather event caused the hillside to come sliding into the range. I am now almost finished clearing out the slip and completing a major retaining wall project having made the range a little wider in the process. I will post updated photos when the job is done.

    So now to the purpose of this thread. Even though this is very much a private use range, with the recent legislative changes I am inclined to have it Police certified but I can’t for the life of me find anything useful on the Police website by way of an application form so am a bit befuddled as to the process.

    Does anyone on here know:
    1. The clauses in the legislation that are relative to range certification?
    2. Whether there is a Police form relative to application for certification and if so what the form number is?
    3. In the absence of a Police form, what process I should follow?

    Any assistance given would be greatly appreciated.
    There is nothing in the public domain yet about the certification process (unless you are involved with it), however about Feb or March next year police will release the proposed range manual for public submission. I would do nothing till then because its being continually refined at the moment.

    Hi Rushy,

    I went through this 'what to do' process myself. In the end I wrote out a 'Range Protocol' checklist. Each range user fills out a sheet which is kept in a folder. I have a range use record which I can use as proof of use and good practice etc in the future if required. It acts as a good safety checklist
    PM me your email and I will forward you the document

    It is looking even better these days after a concerted effort to rectify a slip.

    Shhh,
    In Australia, my state at least we can sight in on private land but we can't actually target shoot technically.
    We possibly could apply to have a private range certified by the police licencesing inspector I guess but they are getting tougher. Backstop butts and other precautions may be required , particularly where there might be dwellings within a given arc and distance.
    People would be practicing or setting up targets doing no harm but if it's discreet and on large properties Noone is looking to investigate further.
    I just wouldn't publicise it.
