Firearms Legislation and Safety course

The New Zealand Open Polytechnic offers an affordable Firearms Legislation and Safety course for those who require a New Zealand Firearms Licence or those who want to gain additional firearms based skills and knowledge. The course covers legislation, firearm types, ammunition, reloading and components, and, most importantly firearms safety. We highly recommend this course for safety conscious firearms users.

Visit their website for more information about the course or to enrol.


The 2015 Palma Rifle Team is about to go to print with its team booklet. The book consists of 34 pages plus cover. All colour with good quality card for its cover and coated paper for the remainder. This book contains all the normal stuff a team book should. Biographies of all 29 members, a couple of great articles and other stuff. The team really wants to share this book with members of the Association first prior to distributing to international shooters at Camp Perry. For a donation of $15 plus postal the team will print you your own copy and arrange for you receive it. The team just needs to know you’re interested in your own collectable copy. If you are and you want to support your team email Amy and place an order. Team departs for the US 24 July, your order needs to be with Amy by the end of this weekend.

This weekend is the Bert Dixon teams match and Karori Rifle Club are duty club as well.

The Bert Dixon match is shot at 300/500/600 yards. Teams are made up of: TR Class is: 2A, 1B, 1C (Shooters may shoot up a grade but cannot shoot down a grade) F Class is: 3 and any mixture of F Open and FTR

If you are keen to be a part of a Karori Rifle Club team, would you please contact Maurice letting him know which class and team you would like to be in.

We are also looking for expressions of interest in those that may wish to shoot in Saturday morning. We are able to shoot at 300/500/600 yards for the CAC Shorts which is an in-house KRC competition. We may not shoot all three distances but are looking for members to tell us whether they want us to open the range. Again, can you please direct your comments to Maurice so that he can inform your committee and a decision is made prior to this Friday morning.

The Club needs your assistance this Saturday with normal duty club range duties. Dressing and undressing the range, targets etc….

The unveiling of these signs was held recently, thanks to Harley O’Hagan for the work he has done to make this project happen.  It’s great to see the ranges histories being preserved.
