Clubs and ranges must apply for approval or certification, and follow guidelines for safe operation, storage and selling of firearms and ammunition.

Firearms Registry requirements now apply

Shooting clubs and shooting ranges will need an individual firearms licence holder to register club firearms under their individual account in the Firearms Registry. This could be split between multiple people, but if one of these people resigns from the club, the arms items must be transferred to another member of the club with a firearms licence and any required endorsements.

Before you shoot with a club or at a range

For your safety, check your club is approved by Te Tari Pūreke, and that they only shoot at certified ranges. 

If you shoot at range, check it is certified by Te Tari Pūreke. A copy of the certificate should be posted at the range and a copy of the range standing orders should be available to view before shooting.
