    Sport Shooting Has Got an Exemption?

    It looks like 3 Guns or IPSC have got an exemption. Am I reading this right?

    Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines, and Parts) Amendment Bill 125-1 (2019), Government Bill ‚Äď New Zealand Legislation

    SOP 201 and SOP 203

    Those were proposed, but I don't think the two from Chris Bishop were approved.

    What if you cut your AR down to 764mm? Could it be transferred to a Bcat and kept as s pistol?

    I don't think so. Im not 100% sure how it works but I think Pistol NZ need to approve any new firearm that is a "pistol" and falls under the pistol rules- and I can't see they would blatantly go against the intention of the new legislation, considering they and their niche were left-alone.
    Would be a good way to destroy any goodwill between Police/govt and Pistol NZ id think.

    No, absolutely not.

    But I say that because I'm pretty sure under 762mm is a pistol.

    Under 762mm is a restricted item (C cat) unless its recognised as a pistol, which AR15 isn't and I doubt it will ever be considered a pistol.

    From the arms act.
    pistol*means any firearm that is designed or adapted to be held and fired with 1 hand; and includes any firearm that is less than 762 millimetres in length

    Guess I was just thinking back to when I lived in the UK. They banned pistols, so some clever folk added a stabiliser to their pistols making them longer than pistol length, so technically a rifle not a pistol.

    I'm sure if I was still into 3 gun competition myself like I was 10 years ago, I'd be looking for loopholes to maintain my competitive edge for overseas competitions.

    Yip, what I thought. Yet, all those with previous E cat endorsement would have extra security, no criminal record, no gang affiliations, no mental health issues, no bad divorce or relationship issues, no family members friends or associates with those issues...and the problem is?
