NZDA Auckland will be hosting a Workshop on Wednesday 29th May focusing on Rifles - covering selection, maintenance and setup. This will very generously be run by our Range Convener Arthur Winterton and a few Range Officers.
This event is aimed at those newer hunters, or even those more experienced guys looking to make sure they are maintaining their own rifles as well as they should be.
Arthur will be covering Rifle selection, Rifle maintenance and cleaning, as well as Rifle setup in terms of scope mounting and sighting in.
Note: NO firearms are to be brought to the club rooms for this workshop - Arthur will be giving a demonstration using provided firearms in a controlled and safe manner - please do not bring your own firearm along, leave that to your next range visit.
Ever thought about getting into reloading but don't know where to start? Well you are in luck.
Scott Stonx and the team at Reloaders are opening the doors for a one night at their Onehunga shop to take us through the do's and don't's of reloading.
$20 per person. A $20 voucher will also be issued to each attendee, to be spent on the night.
This is open to both NZDA members and the public. So if you have some mates who are keen on shooting inviting them along!
Reloaders may video the event, to be chucked up on their awesome YouTube channel. So make sure you wear your best bush shirt.
