Nicole McKee

I enjoy competing in multiple shooting disciplines and am a keen meat hunter with a .303 rifle. I am fortunate enough to still represent both my country and region, as well as having held national shooting and championship titles in several firearm disciplines.

I have legal training and worked in law firms in Rotorua and Wellington followed by eight years at home raising four children. I have enjoyed employment with a leading firearms component wholesaler, Steve’s Wholesale Ltd where I made and have maintained many of the broad spectrum contacts from within industry including other wholesalers, retailers, hunters and shooters throughout New Zealand. I was a volunteer firearms safety instructor and Wellington Central coordinator for a number of years as well as Firearms and Hunter Safety Programme Manager for MSC before establishing Firearms Safety Specialists NZ Ltd.
