    Ken Henderson

    Huge loss to the NZ shooting community

    Well known for making awesome carbon stocks, and he used to strike fear and despair into other competitors whenever he turned up at a F-class range or field event

    Always a great guy to talk to about serious competitive shooting - whenever I spoke to him he came across as a quiet, humble guy but man he was an absolute fountain of knowledge...

    Ken's name was synonymous with excellence in our community. That is very hard to achieve. His name was, and always will be, legendary.

    His accidental death is tragic for his family and our thoughts are with them.

    RIP mate, and well done on everything you achieved.

    Was it a vehicle accident or something?

    It is always saddening when we lose a fellow enthusiast. I do not think our paths ever crossed but nonetheless may he Rest In Peace
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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

    One of Kens enduring attributes, was that even when at the top of his game, in any discipline, he had time for the little guy. And a nugget of advice that we all sought.
