The club delivers firearms safety training to young and old and has been a feature in the community for 47 years.
Auckland Pistol Club provides firearms safety training to residents and ratepayers across the Auckland region.
The club provides the intensive and hands on training that is required for the safe handling of pistols for competitive target shooting sports. We are proud to have had many of New Zealand’s best competitive shooters amongst our club members.
The club provides a safe venue for the ongoing training and practice required to maintain proficiency in handling a pistol which is required for pistol shooting sports. It’s a legal requirement for those who own pistols for target shooting to be a member of a pistol club and make at least 12 attendances each year.
The club has been a longstanding institution in the community and has good relations with its previous neighbours. Recently there has been housing intensification around the club and a series of noise complaints have followed.
A new subdivision and a new house has radically shrunk the clubs noise envelope.
The club is determined to continue to operate and provide services to Auckland Residents as a not-for-profit organisation. To do this it needs funds to install sound proofing features on its ranges so that the new ‘closest neighbour’ is not impacted.
Work has already begun on sound-proofing the ranges. Now we need your support for this to continue.
Competitive target pistol shooting is a very active sport internationally and is a core sport at the Olympic Games. NZ has a great competitive history in shooting sports and has done incredibly well on the international stage.
Take this opportunity to support the development of our junior and senior athletes by maintaining their training venue.
