    Yes Rob, 2013 will be a bit curly due to new primary legislation covering PCP air rifles in New Zealand. It does not affect spring/ piston air rifles however.

    Visitors to New Zealand wishing to bring a PCP air rifle of any energy level must apply for a Visitors firearms license. We have been advised by the Police vetting service that holding a Firearm Lic in your own country is not necessarily a strict requirement, but at the very least being a member of the local RGB, and having completed a firearms safety competency course equivalent to our own is required.

    Application for the Visitors Lic can be made 12 months beforehand, this should allow sufficient time for a successful application to be made prior to booking flights/accomodation and registration. The visitors Lic acts as the import permit, and at the airport a small fee is payable for the paperwork to be completed.

    Applications must be made online to the Police website. We are not permitted to do the application for you. There is no cost at the time of application, the fee is payable on landing at the border. (NZ$40)

    Once in the Country, the PCP air rifles will have to be securely stored, compliant with the Arms Act, meaning if the accommodation does not have secure storage, we will store it in a central armoury at the venue.

    It is envisaged that this process of arranging a visitor Lic will be the worst part of registration, but can be done well in advance.

    Venue still under consideration.

    Also no surprises on rules changes etc planned. WFTF core rules apply, and BFTA rules are compatible with NZ code.

    In the meantime, we wish Italy and Norway the best for their events, and competitors " Bon Chance".

    GS

    Too early ...

    Blimey ! I hadn't finished reading my emails - and it's on HERE already - can't you get a job on fleet street Rob ? :D:D:D Sorry folks - got no news yet. All I can tell you is that it will be AM & PM sessions according to the 150 competitor format on here. http://www.freewebs.com/nftac/fthftrules.htm We're obviously bound by WFTF rules and hopefully we'll have a few issues straightened out by the next chair period comes around. ;)

    That was actually my post Simon dearest (Paula) you sarcy little devil :p

    It would be nice to take Libby, especially whilst there are AM and PM sessions and one of us could be available to look after her.

    Look at me, we haven't even got to Italy yet ;):D

    Andy, is it shot over 2 days or three days?

    If there is only 150 competitors allowed and there is am/pm sessions over 3 days. 2 targets per lane makes 25 lanes i.e. 50 targets, on 3 courses. I may have got it wrong but using a max of 150 competitiors thats only 25 competitors per course??:confused:

    Can you explain the format the link ain't working and I'm stupid:eek:

    Conor

    p.S. book me in thanks

    My Guess
    Sounds like 1 course, 25 lanes, 3 shooters per lane = 75 shooters x am+pm = 150 shooters per day.

    What happened to Lithuania, Germany, Malta and the Netherlands? They were all on the list before New Zealand and Norway that i have (WFTF Master list) and NZ and Norway were the other way around with N.Z being before Norway??? Confused.com:confused:

    Guess the others felt they couldnt hold it at all yet with the current climate and gun law.

    i for one would find it difficult to raise money fast enough for new zealand next year but two years i have enough time to rob banks and be sentenced and be out before we go :D


    i am sure someone who knows the reason will be a long to give you the proper picture im just avoiding doing housework :)
