Target pistol shooting was introduced in New Zealand in 1968. By 1972 we had a pistol NZ shooter at the Olympic Games.
Since that time target pistol shooting has developed in numbers and the types of events shot. Pistol NZ shooters have competed successfully in many international events, winning many medals at Commonwealth Games, as well as World Championship medals in other pistol disciplines.
Pistol New Zealand has 88 affiliated clubs throughout New Zealand, so no matter where you live, there will be a club near you.
In 2019, Pistol New Zealand celebrated its 50th year.
