94. Special Conditions Relating to Approved Pistol Clubs

Without limiting the conditions to which the approval of a pistol club may be subject, any such approval is subject to the following conditions:

(a) the club must not admit a person (the applicant) as a member unless:
(i) the applicant has submitted 2 character references from persons who are of or above the age of 18 and who have known the applicant for at least 2 years, or
(ii) the secretary or other relevant office holder of the club is satisfied that the applicant has submitted the name of any other approved pistol club or shooting club of which the applicant is a member,

(b) if the club cancels or suspends the membership of any member, the secretary or other relevant office holder must, within 7 days of the cancellation or suspension, notify the Commissioner that the person's membership has been cancelled or suspended and advise the Commissioner of the reasons for the cancellation or suspension,

(c) the club must ensure that a person whose category H (sport/target shooting) licence has been revoked or suspended does not, while the revocation or suspension remains in force, use a pistol on any shooting range or other premises of the club,

(d) if the secretary or other relevant office holder of an approved pistol club is of the opinion that any person who is a member of the club, or who has applied to be a member of the club, may pose a threat to public safety (or a threat to the person's own safety) if in possession of a firearm, the secretary or office holder must inform the Commissioner of that opinion.
