A 28 year-old Finley man was scheduled to appear in Albury Local Court today after allegedly firing a rifle during a confrontation at an oval in Finley on Monday night.

Police say two 28 year-olds met at the oval about 9.30pm on Monday.

One of the men allegedly produced a firearm and discharged a shot.

The other man immediately attended Finley Police Station and reported the matter to police.

The following morning Deniliquin Criminal Investigations Unit executed a search warrant at a home in a Finley St about 11.30am.

Police seized eight registered long arm firearms, two registered hand guns, two unregistered long arm firearms and one unregistered hand gun.

Small plastic bags containing white powder, axe handles and a large quantity of assorted ammunition were also seized.

The alleged shooter was charged with firing a firearm in a public place, armed with intent to commit indictable offence, intimidation and possessing unauthorised firearms.

He was refused bail and was due to appear today.
