    @Rushy, keen as bro
    Yeah when that shit first started I Google Earthed the centre and was very surprised by the intervening distance and the hilly tree covered terrain in between. But initially the centre wasn't complaining, it was the neighbour, along with his own complaints, saying how the centre would be affected and then later the centre started their own whinge (oops sorry complaint).

    For interest have a look at the Centre's website.

    YeahI cant afford the fees at the moment - not when I have a range card for nzda and am a member of auckland servcie rifle. The club is taking a very professional approach which is fantastic, and I will consider becoming a member once the rifle ranges open up.

    It really is a bit much for me at the moment, but its auckland, just the land is a huge expense.

    Does noise from guns only travel by road?

    Just an idea of how far away it is, Troll creature. There are two ridges between too.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    How far away by road. In a straight line it's about 1km.

    Correct. And two ridges. They can't hear a thing. Not quiet-ish noises, zilch. Go find something better to do dickhead, gotta be cars you can bark at or something.

    I've also joined, and the Misses will join next week.. we both intend to do our B-cats,

    we did intend on joining APC but thats become a very restricted range, and I didnt like the attitude of WPC, also seem to be having issues re:noise,

    they all cost about the same to join. so that is no real issue... but getting good access, a fully usable range(s) is important

    Oh and ASC will have bring a mate fees,

    VISITORS

    All visitors must be accompanied by a Club member of the Auckland Shooting Club while shooting on the ranges. The Club member is responsible for ensuring that the visitor is aware of the Club rules, regulations and range standing orders.

    Members are limited to bringing up to 3 visitors at a time unless they have approval by the Committee.

    All shooting undertaken by visitors must be directly supervised by an Auckland Shooting Club member standing within a reasonable distance to the shooter to maintain control.

    Visitors without a NZ firearms licence are restricted to the use of .22 LR unless approved by the Club Training Officer, Club Approved Trainer or member of Committee. Visitors without a NZ firearms licence are considered potential members and may visit up to 3 times before they required to make the decision to join or not.

    The Club member is responsible in making sure the visitor has paid the correct visitors fee, signed into the visitor’s book and has been issued with a visitor badge which they must visibly wear at all times while at the Auckland Shooting Club.

    A spectator or someone who does not shoot while attending the Auckland Shooting Club is not required to pay the visitors fee, but is still required to sign into the visitor’s book and wear a ‘spectator’ badge.

Will ask them these questions when the range is open to the public. but yea, looking forward to something like this finally being built in auckland tho, looks like an awesome facility.
    I've read that website from top to bottom and can honestly say, I can't find a visitors fee. I think they didn't display it as it may deter people from the membership...

    when/if you join you get a set of members only pages to look at, rules/regs, pistol training/matches etc.

    Visitors are only allowed if accompanied by a member at this stage, I can see nothing about "open" days at this stage.

    That's where I got to when I posted this thread initially. I assume they want an early cash injection to further develop the facility, cover costs etc. and signing up members for 12 months is the best way to do that. Hopefully in time more options will be made available.
