Welcome to the 2006 issue of Australian & New Zealand Handgun magazine. Whether you are a collector, club competitor or use a handgun in your profession, there is something of interest in our fourth issue of Handgun.
Despite ridiculous, ineffective laws on handguns that only punish the lawful, handgun shooting as a sport and skill is still alive at shooting ranges across the country.
The greatest irony for handgun shooters will occur in Melbourne at the coming Commonwealth Games in March. Will we see politicians congratulating our elite handgun competitors in the very same city where the new handgun laws were first seeded by the actions of a man found to be ‘mentally incompetent’?
New handgun laws put in place by the Federal Liberal Government were supposedly initiated to create a ‘safer’ community. Yet mafia shootings continue unabated in this year’s Commonwealth Games city, and crime across Australia follows the same unrestricted path.
But enough of that for now! Look forward to seeing some great handgun shooting at the Games and in the meantime, enjoy the read.
