    Finally got out to the range on Saturday to see what's happening. They are making slow progress with the track which is still not all weather. It will be good to see some structural progress with the shooting platform etc. There are plans but it is going to take a lot of work. Access track, parking area, shooting platforms, target sites. It was good to see what they are dealing with. Got to smash some gongs and limestone rocks out to 1300m. It is beyond the black stump out there quite a drive.

    Hi folks, I (Kerry) am stepping away from The Shooting Range project.

    Should you want to contact me for other reasons - kerry@precisionshooter.co.nz is the best way.

    That can only be a bad thing, can't it?

    What’s the centre on your website - was it this or something new? @The Bloke

    No, the centre is a separate project.

    I originally approached the guys at Onewhero looking to hold competition and courses there - quickly realised they needed a lot of help getting it going, so came onboard as the 'operations manager' - after a time I started to get uncomfortable with how things were progressing, and stepped away from the project.

    I still feel there is a need for such a range, so kept looking for land. I had another property lined up but was recently notified by the real estate agent that the owner had made a deal elsewhere and not notifed them.

    However, still looking as there really is still a need for a property run field shooting range.

    To shoot in Auckland is not hard! You have three clubs with ranges out to 1000 yards in close proximity as stated early in the thread by Dogmatix and Dermaster. They are ClevedonClevedon Rifle Club - Home, Akarana-Cityhttps://www.sporty.co.nz/akaranacity/ and Franklinhttps://www.franklinrifleclub.co.nz/.
    All of these clubs are wanting to meet you and make you feel welcome. They all cater for visitors and are a wealth of knowledge about wind, weather, and getting the most out of your firearm.
    These clubs all use electronic targets so collecting data about your shoot is as easy as connecting to the target server and saving your shoots for later reference.
    If any of you really want to shoot, instead of staying home dreaming your dreams, then contact one or all three of these clubs. The contact numbers are on their webpages. Some use facebook as well.
    There is no need to bemoan the lack of rifle ranges in Auckland and try to re-invent the wheel, when you have three on your doorstep

    Yeah great if you want to shoot NRA style shoots, but no joy if you want to shoot steel targets or have a PRS/field shoot.
