NZ Range Locations
Apr 28th, 2008 at 8:06pm
Print Post  
Last year I made a page on the IMAS website which uses Google Maps to show the location of shooting ranges around New Zealand. If you are looking for a pistol/rifle/shotgun club to join, or just a place to sight in your rifle check it out.

http://www.imas.co.nz/ranges.html

If you know of a range not listed let me know here or email me through the page. Also if you have details of any range listed that have no details get them to me & I'll update the listing.

Cheers,
Spiker

I'm in Timaru, is anyone aware of any ranges near here? It appears there is nothing between Dunedin and Christchurch?


NZDA have ranges in Timaru and Oamaru, at least.  Smiley

Don't be disheartened if the map shows no ranges in your area. There may well be some it's just that I haven't been told where they are so haven't been able to add them to the map. For example the Waimate & Ashburton Pistol clubs...

NZDA Timaru range has moved recently.  The new one is still going through the (long) certification process.  Should be open soon.  Good news is that it's going to be much bigger and flasher than the old one when it does open.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

I was wondering if there were any NZDA ranges within a reasonable distance from Christchurch suitable for centerfire rifles?
Thanks Smiley

Yes, check the website for dates.  http://www.nzdacanterbury.org/

Handloaders range (next door) is open to the public every tuesday night.

Both ranges are 5 min from chch.
