Welcome to the Waiuku Pistol Club

 

Level 2 Guidelines
Note: these apply to all people coming to the Club whether or not you are coming from outside the Auckland area.
 
1. The Club is now also open for Guest and Visitors via requesting a booking by clicking here

2. Sign in / out book
You must sign in immediately on arrival at the range: note your arrival time
Sign out when you leave and note your departure time.
You will also need to record which ranges you were on.
It is important every member signs in and out to help with contact tracing if necessary.
The range register has been updated with columns for this.
There will be hand sanitizer at the sign in desk to use when you sign in. Please bring your own pen.

3. Physical Distancing
There is to be a maximum of 10 people on a range at once. Observe a minimum of 1 metre physical spacing at all times and do not handle any another person’s equipment.
The only exception to this will be if you are Range Officer for other shooters and you need to look at their guns to clear them. Try at all times to do this in a way that does not involve handling the gun. Anyone acting as a range officer will need to wear a mask.

The maximum of 10 and requirement for 1 metre distancing mean we could end up with people waiting to get on a range.  If this happens, please get on and enjoy your shooting then pack up and make space for others. Don’t stand around and chat on the range, if you want to catch up with mates do it outside with physical distancing.

4. Masks
I encourage all members to bring their own masks.
You should wear a mask while on ranges with other people. Some Disposable masks are available by the sign in desk. Anyone acting as a range officer will need to wear a mask.

5. Hygiene
Wash your hands. Surfaces in the Club House will be sanitized regularly and there will be hand sanitizer on each range. Please use this when you enter the range before you touch any surfaces.
Toilets and hand basins will be cleaned and sanitized regularly and kept stocked with liquid soap and paper towels.
We recommend you also bring your own hand sanitizer and towel.
Aside from paper towels and used targets etc from the ranges,  please take all of your personal rubbish (food, wrappers, drink containers etc.), home for disposal.

6. Tyro Training
Tyro Training will carry on but with strict requirements. All tyros must wear a mask. No mask no training. Trainers will also be wearing masks and gloves. Maintain physical distancing while waiting to shoot.

7. Symptoms & Health
Do not come to the Club if you or anyone in your bubble, have any cold or flu symptoms. Get a test.

8. Suspected Exposure to Covid 19
In the event you think you may have been exposed to Covid 19 and have attended the Club, contact Vice President Paul,  armorer@waiukupistolclub.org.nz  immediately so we can notify Healthline and begin contact tracing. Obviously, notify your own Doctor and or Healthline as well.

Waiuku Pistol Club has been in existence for over 30 years at the same site. It is just about the only club in the greater Auckland area where members can fire their rifles, shotguns and pistols leisurely; or in competition. It is a pleasant 1 hour drive from downtown Auckland and is situated in a secluded and picturesque part of Waiuku close to the sea.  

 

We have 5 unique ranges from 25m to 100m. All ranges are certified by the NZ Police & Pistol NZ for rifle, shotgun and pistol shooting in accordance with the Range Standing Orders - which must be strictly complied with.

 

We operate under a Resource Consent which enables the club to be open to members from 10 am to 4 pm Wednesday to Sunday, excluding Public Holidays.

The club has over 500 members many of whom have a wealth of knowledge of firearms and are happy to provide guidance to any shooter who may have a problem with a firearm or wish to improve their shooting skills.

 

Shooting is a safe sport providing you follow some simple rules. It is a sport that you can participate in all your life. We have members from age 12 through to 99 (well, not quite but some of them look it!). We also have a number of families as members who shoot as a family group.
