    I popped up to the new Auckland Shooting Club on the weekend to check out one of their new regular competitions – IPSC Mini.

    IPSC Mini is well, IPSC Rifle with .22 calibre guns.

    That basically means, it’s fast, it’s close and it’s very cheap to compete in!

    I noticed there was a good mix of both experienced competition shooters and new shooter involved – a great opportunity for the old-hats to practice in a much cheaper format and an even better opportunity for new shooters to develop their safe firearms handling skills before adding in the centerfire calibers as well.

    I had a little gaff in the first stage, as I didn’t really plan on shooting the comp – however, I was signed up and added to the squad and told to get my gun – who am I to say no to shooting! – anyhow, the first stage, the buzzer goes off and I bring the rifle up to my eye – and see a big black hole where my sight picture should be! No, I managed to take the scope covers off, but I had left the scope set to 7x – which – for shooting a target about 10 meters away – was a bit much – I can see this discipline being ideal for a red dot type optic – or even iron sights!

    This is a great discipline that I can see going far in NZ, I will certainly be heading up to the next one!

    While the ultimate, of course, is having a remote bivy (small hut) to just yourself and your mates, for some of the more accessible and bigger huts, there is a very good chance you are going to be sharing a hut with other trampers and hunters. As ambassadors for tramping, hunting, and just being nice human beings, there are some basic principles we should all be applying A lot of this comes down to one simple principle - consideration for others. Consideration for others is the simplest and best guide for co-inhabiting a hut. It is not a bad starting point for humanity either. This article puts forward some simple considerations and pointers for the next time you find yourself in a shared hut.

    AAR – Tarata Medium Range Shooting Competition

    I haven't traditionally done an AAR (after action report) for shoots - but have decided (or realised) that it's a great way of reflecting on how I shot, what I did well, what I could do better.

    The general public and firearms awareness.

    The general public know a lot less about firearms in NZ than you might think. This is both a good and bad thing.
