    Would this club be associated with the NZ service rifle association?

    i have had a look at there website, and there is not a lot of information on there with joining ect, there is a joining form and a fee of $25, this mite give you more information i don't know.

    if there was a "club" or group formed what do you think a bout being apart of the service rifle association?

    do you know any members already?

    I would be interested as long as it is independent of any NZ shooting organisations that pay subs to COLFO

    Just form your own incorporated society. Write up a club constitution and mission statement. That makes you legit as a club I think. We had to go through all that when we split from IMAS.

    Already exists?

    Hey Guys,

    I am a member of the RRGC, it has been operating for around half a century.

    The RRGC has a rifle range where you can shoot MSSA weapons.
    The club has an IPSC section, some members participate in MSSA 3 Gun shooting, practicing locally but competing at places like Taupo.
    There was also interest in Service Rifle at the club but it looks like nothing has happened in that aspect possibly due to a lack of interest, I could be wrong though - its a big club.

    So whether you need a MSSA for hunting, 3 Gun or Service, all three already exist in some capacity and need supporters!

    What exactly would this "MSSA club" be for exactly... if not for one of the three mentioned above?

    Just curious,
    Matt

    tiritea road. near aokautere. sort of behind the pacific college. unfortunately certain factions within the committee never see eye to eye so like to bicker and argue and things dont get done.

    true

    The club is pretty factional, that's true, if you want to set up dedicated MSSA shoots you may have an uphill battle.

    In many years of shooting I have noticed that anywhere you have pistol shooting you have serious infighting. Cowboys and Practial shooters (IPSC) both think each other are from outer space

    Practical shooters because they shoot guns like this -

    And cowboys because they dress like this -

    Good luck

    I should say though that if you and a group of your mates want to (as members) use the 100m range for MSSA shooting then no one can say no if its just your private shooting. You may only have to fight the committee if you want to book out the range or set it up.

    I would suggest...
    Join
    Go early in the morning when it should be quiet and have some fun
    After a few months approach the committee and say, we have been doing this already... can we make it official.
    No harm if they say no.

    Sounds like the club need some new committee members. Pretty hard joining a club knowing you are in for fight to do what you want to.
