How to Join

So you have visited the range and made the decision to commit to the club for the foreseeable future.

The Secretary can email you a copy of the joining process.

You can apply to become a probationary member by completing the relevant documents.

Applications must be scanned electronically and sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Once your application is received, it will be presented at the next committee meeting for consideration and approval.

Upon being granted probationary membership you will be required to pay the current membership fees and be issued a Pistol NZ I.D number.

As a new club-member you undergo a 6 month probationary period, during which time you must complete a minimum of 12 shoots and pass the mandatory safety training.

At the completion of the probationary period you may apply to the committee to become a full member.

If the committee is satisfied with the probationer’s performance during this period then it will support the member’s application for a B endorsement (pistol licence).                                     

Applying for your Pistol License

Before applying for your pistol license you need the following:

Have a current standard New Zealand firearms licence.

Be a fully paid up member of Kaimai Pistol Club and Pistol New Zealand.

Complete the relevant documents with the Secretary.

Maintaining your license

After obtaining your B endorsement (Pistol License) that is not the end. In order to retain your license, you must continue to attend 12 shoots per year. So there is an ongoing commitment to having a pistol license in New Zealand.
