Joining the range and/or shooting lessons
PVR offers lessons to members of the public with the primary goal of improving firearms safety and enjoyment. We offer a range of courses that can cater to new hunters, experienced competitors and tourism.
If you are local and interested in joining the Range Membership program you need to start with the Range Safety Officer Course at a minimum, alternatively the RSO course is also included in the level 2 and level 3 courses.
New shooters, we recommend you select our Level 1 course or Level 4 course. All of our courses are tailored to your needs, we can offer courses to all ages and skill levels.
Our Level 1 and Level 4 Courses are recognised by New Zealand Tourisms QualMark Program, you do NOT require a NZ firearms licence for these experiences as you will be under direct supervision by one of our qualified Range Officers.
Our Lessons are designed to teach the community about firearms safety and practicality to a degree far greater than what is offered for free from NZ police, these courses are designed to be an experience, and participants will leave with only photos and hopefully a passion for the sport... you will NOT be allowed to leave with live ammunition or firearms... (excluding those that attend the range with a current NZ firearms licence).
