New Pistol Communication Process based on Section Rules (Sept 2017)
If a member is looking to import a new pistol into New Zealand, they must approach their Local Arms Officer for all such enquiries. If the Police require further information, then only THEY may contact Pistol New Zealand for further details, not the member.
If a member of Police approaches Pistol New Zealand asking if a particular type of firearm can be used in matches that complies with current Council approved rules, then the following reply will be given in all cases:
“Pistol NZ does not approve or disapprove individual types of firearms. If the firearm is compatible with the International rules of a discipline, then a shooter can use it. Based on the available information, this firearm complies with match rules which are shot by PNZ”
If asked, the Executive Officer will specify which events a particular firearm complies with.
Note: The Police may ask any additional questions of the member to verify a genuine reason for importing/transferring such firearms.
