For people wanting to shoot occasionally or for whom there is no local club - use this. If you have a local club, join that please. Yes! I want to join the NZ Service Rifle Association Inc. Forms under Downloads and here
The New Zealand Service Rifle Association Inc continues the very old tradition of shooting at targets with military rifles. Our discipline is between NRA (single shot deliberate shooting) and IPSC (multiple targets and movement), and we now call it Service Rifle shooting.
Service Rifle Shooting
in New Zealand
In 1997, the International Military Arms Society Inc in Auckland, and Wellington Service Rifle Association formed the New Zealand Service Rifle Association Inc. The Service Match Code, was created at this time to provide rules and matches for Service Rifle shooting. It is now in its fifth edition.
Based on this we hold National Championships and run and attend International competitions. Our affiliated clubs are in Auckland, Wellington and Rotorua. Some other clubs around New Zealand also shoot Service Rifle matches as part of their overall programmes.
A summary of the NZSRA’s objectives is:
To promote Service Rifle shooting at International, National, and Club level throughout New Zealand.
To provide a consistent set of rules and procedures (the Service Match Code)
To organise National Championships
To provide a central organising body for other external bodies to refer to.
To provide an organisation membership of which would support individual ownership of Service Rifles
To create recognition by the NZ Police of Service Rifle shooting as a sport and to recognise it as a legitimate and properly controlled reason for using MSSAs.
We recruit members from shooters who want to shoot their Service Rifles in competition. Benefits include:
Eligibility to shoot in competitions organised by the Association
Membership provides additional justification for an E endorsement application
Supporting the sport of Service Rifle shooting and ownership
Range Officer qualifications and assistance to run competitions at your own club
