    List of All Firearms Retailers in New Zealand

    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 118. For comparison, there are 167 McDonald's restaurants in New Zealand. Both numbers are as of June 2018.
    Here are the numbers broken down by region:

    North Island: 76
    Northland: 7
    Auckland: 12
    Waikato: 14
    Bay of Plenty: 10
    Gisbourne: 3
    Taranaki: 2
    Manawatu-Wanganui: 12
    Hawke's Bay: 7
    Wellington: 9

    South Island: 42
    Tasman: 3
    Nelson: 1
    Marlborough: 2
    West Coast: 5
    Canterbury: 13
    Otago: 10
    Southland: 8

    Total: 118

    And finally, here is the list itself:

    Feel free to let me know if you spot a mistake or wish to have something added.
    If you have email addresses for any of the stores above that are missing them, that would also be helpful.
    If you wish to have something added, just make sure to read the criteria I specified at the beginning of this post before replying.

    Cheers,

    That list I can see being really helpful. Update on Vern Wilson’s TA is now Dave Gibson’s same contact details.

    The Timaru Smith's City at least has a couple dozen firearms in stock in their outdoor section most of the time, I assume a few of the other locations do also?

    He’s still kicking around. He sold he business a while ago and the new owner kept his name. Another dude(Dave) bought into it and now owns it outright....thinks that how it works

    Yep, he still lives in TeAwamutu.
    His brother had the hood street shop in the late seventies and eighties. Vern had a shop in Ward street a bit later.
    Overkill is still dead.

    Indeed. Though he does not advertise his address and may not appreciate it being listed here, he does have the shop and does open to the public.

    I bought my first rifle from Vern's Ward street shop in 1986. I still have it, and it's still my favourite too.

    I think last time I was there it was something like 3 Howas, 2 T3s and 3 JW15s... not the place to go for variety.
