Cable Bay Pistol Club has been in existence since 1993, and continues to provide the opportunity to learn to handle firearms in a safe and responsible manner – all within a controlled environment. The club consists of male and female members of all ages, abilities and backgrounds sharing in this exciting and rewarding sport.
The club has a strong core of competitive shooters who compete in national and international events who are always willing to impart their knowledge and techniques to other members. The opportunity to train and compete with these shooters provides each member with an excellent resource to help achieve their full potential.
Club members meet every weekend at the Cable Bay ranges to develop proficiency in many competitive disciplines. Examples of these are IPSC Pistol, Steel Plate and 3 Gun (Pistol-Shotgun-Rifle) and each of these categories have further divisions within them depending on the equipment used.
Organised events are generally held on a Sunday afternoon which allows members to engage in some friendly competition, shooting stages designed to test shooter’s firearm skills and mental agility.
New members are always made welcome and are encouraged to try their hand at pistol shooting under the instruction and control of one of our PNZ qualified Range Officers. We provide hearing protectors and safety glasses for guests and have club owned firearms available for prospective members
