WEF 23 February 2012 Victoria Police recognised MISC as an independent club under the provisions of the Firearms Act. This happened after lodging a range
of documents that included:
- a copy of our Insurance Policies that cover all people whilst on MISC premises;
- a copy of our Statement of Purpose and Rules;
- a copy of our Club Calendar;
- a copy of Members Handbook;
Note: Victoria Police also approved our new member Induction Training earlier last year.
What does this mean? It means that:
- There is no change to existing club affiliations at this time, nor is any member's status with an affiliated association changed provided the member has paid the annual subscription to that association - either directly or via the club.
- Payment of VAPA association fees via MISC will remain unchanged at this time.
- We do intend to form more affiliations and or, develop Memorandums of Understanding where necessary, over time with the widest range of pro shooting associations / organisations reasonably possible. MISC has positioned itself to cater adequately for all legitimate forms of shooting in the future as they emerge.
- Members are encouraged to retain or obtain membership of at least one association, outside the club, that actively fosters a shooting sport.
The list of associations you may care to select from below is not complete, but is provided as a guide.
- Victorian Amateur Pistol Association;
- Target Rifle Victoria;
- International Practical Shooting Confederation (Australia) Inc;
- Sporting Shooters Association of Australia.
- Modern Pentathlon
- Biathlon Australia
