List of All Firearms Retailers in New Zealand
Jul 17th, 2018 at 4:29pm
Print Post  
Hey fellow gun guys,

After quite a bit of collation and research I have come up with a list of all firearms retailers in New Zealand.
This list includes all retail gun stores and all retail stores that routinely stock firearms.
Please note, this list does not include online only stores, stores that are only open by appointment, or distributors that do not sell directly to the public.

Using those criteria, the total number of firearms retailers in New Zealand is 121. For comparison, there are 167 McDonald's restaurants in New Zealand. Both numbers are as of November 2018.
Here are the numbers broken down by region:

North Island: 77
Northland: 7
Auckland: 14
Waikato: 14
Bay of Plenty: 10
Gisborne: 3
Taranaki: 2
Manawatu-Wanganui: 12
Hawke's Bay: 6
Wellington: 9

South Island: 44
Tasman: 3
Nelson: 1
Marlborough: 2
West Coast: 6
Canterbury: 15
Otago: 10
Southland: 7

Total: 121

And finally, here is the list itself:

Reminds me of a Bryan Ferry song, "Time On my Hands",  Smiley but, hey!, it may be a useful reference list for some people?

I just wanted to raise awareness of what gun shops are out there and how many of them there are. A lot of these shops have little or no online presence, so as far as most people are concerned they don't exist. I am sure there are many shops on the list that most people either weren't aware of or didn't know they sold firearms. A lot of smaller gun shops have closed down over the years, so they definitely need our support and patronage.

I ultimately want to keep gun shops visible and an integral part of society going forward. They shouldn't be hidden in out-of-the-way places or heard about only through word-of-mouth. They should be right out on the main street, and people should think nothing of their presence there. That is the case in many towns in New Zealand, and I wish for that to be the case nationwide.  Cool

There are a whole lot of people with Dealers licences who arent on that list , both wholesale and retail who don't have retail premises but who do sell firearms .
The South Island shops generally sell more hunting firearms than the North Island ones .
Smiths City Blenheim used to sell firearms , I don't know if they still do .
I gave them a ring and only Greymouth still does .
