Range Officer Course – Multigun The Warkworth Pistol club played host to a Range Officer course for Pistol NZ’s Multigun Discipline. Multigun is a new shooting sport to NZ – combining the three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) into one course of fire. While it isn’t the first time that Multigun in some form has been…
This past weekend I attended my first ever shooting event, run by the good lads at Gillice Practical Rifle Events in conjunction with Ruahine NZDA down in good old windy Dannevirke. The event was a biathalon – where the competitors were scored on their overall time and also shooting ability. 99% of the targets were…
The recent Kaipara Field Steel shoot has a couple of international shooters attend. A group of four from New Caledonia headed down and ended up taking away the two top spots! Sebastian is also the match director for several shoots in New Caledonia and I told him to make sure he sent me down some info…
The Warkworth Pistol Club – every time I visit there I met new people, have a great time and want to head back.
The KRG Bolt Lift is one of those simple, but very cool and useful modifications you can put on your rifle. Even modification might be too strong of a word, because it’s simply screw on, screw off with no permanent change to your bolt handle.
What a difference! The rifle already shot well (by my standards) but simply changing the chassis over shrunk it significantly.
The Tarata Medium Range Shoot involves targets between 100m and about 600m. It is a great shoot for people wanting to extend their hunting rifle shooting that little bit further.
I thought I would put together a short article on how, why and the differences in naming caliber.
Warkworth Pistol Club recently held a Man-vs-Man Multigun event. It was a phenomenal event in that – the format created a unique level of spectator excitement that I hadn’t come across before in a match.
Measuring groups gives us empirical data representing the ability of our rifle and ourselves to shoot. The amount each of those factors influences our shooting. Obviously, shooting off-hand unsupported is going to result in more shooter influence than shooting a captive rifle off a bench will. So it’s important whenever someone gives us a ‘measure’ that it’s also framed by how it was shot and under what conditions. Otherwise it’s like comparing apples and oranges.
