    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 pistol club just built a range for themselves. Not anyone else. You’ll have to wait a while I expect. I don’t have anything to do with them.

    So a club that has funded a range from club member funds and efforts is clicky because it is for members only?

    Timaru has ALWAYS had funny wee ranges that are club only..the NZDA one in town was .22lr and pistol and the local coppers used it...some thing happened and the coppers moved out to new range at mt horrible as did NZDA.... last time I saw then the local coppers were on another private range closer to cave ...come to think of it the NZDA had another unofficial rifle range just out of pleasant point before all the rules n regs got in the way....pity the one the army used to use for training school kids wasnt kept open.....just down the hill from girls high and across the road,shooting south into the high bluff/bank that now has houses all around it.....they call it progress.

    They got a big chunk of charitable funding based on the claims of creating a publicly accessible rifle range for the local area. (this was the bulk of their funding, iirc)

    They also got a heap of support, both with assets and with manpower, from the NZDA branch, on the basis of getting the rifle range up and running for general use asap.

    They also pre-sold memberships to rifle shooters under the promise of "pay now, only start your member year when the rifle range is open".

    This was several years ago, still no rifle range to my knowledge..

    Fair enough on some points.

    I still don't know of any certified range in NZ that is publically accessible willy nilly?
