A special note from the NZ and Norsewood Police on gun safety when hunting
Please remember to:
Treat every firearm as LOADED
Always point firearms in a safe direction
Identify you target beyond all doubt
Check your firing zone – Ask yourself
“What could happen if I miss my target!!!”
Be aware of what could be hit in the area between you and your target, AND in the area
beyond your target, should you miss hitting your target.
Eg: The range for a .22 rimfire projectile could be as much as 1.5 kilometres
