Good news for good shots

A DUNZ member has provided the following information.

From a recent Council of Licensed Firearm Owners (COLFO) newsletter.

Please circulate and if you are not a member of COLFO and Sporting Shooters Association of New Zealand please consider joining. The bar stewards are not going to give up trying to take our hobby, sport and interests away from us:

A Win for Auckland Shooting Club and all NZ Shooting Ranges with financial assistance from Pistol New Zealand and COLFO, we are pleased to report that the Auckland Shooting Club has won its legal Battle with Auckland City Council to have its certificate of Compliance reinstated.

Auckland Council had revoked the certificate on the grounds of perceived lead contamination discharges to land and water.

If the Council stance had been upheld it could have heralded the end of shooting ranges in New Zealand.

This information has been provided by a DUNZ member.
