    Question Can I target shoot on your land? (Wellington)

    I am sick of dealing with the old guard that are always at Kaitoke so I am looking around for some private property to target shoot on instead.
    I'd be with my girlfriend and we'd be shooting an SKS, shotgun and .22. We'd only shoot wood targets and clean everything up afterwards, pick up our brass and hulls, etc of course.
    We can pay if you want but it would have to be cheaper than the cost of a private booking at Kaitoke otherwise there's no point.

    Also if you want to let me pop some bunnies while I'm there that'd be cool :p But no pressure they're your bunnies.

    Send me a message if you can help me out I guess.

    Apparently you missed the part where I said I'd pay.

    Besides that it is possible to just be a decent person, I plan to let people shoot on my land when I buy my farm. Way to be a di*ck though, nice first impression of this forum for me.

    Bugger, hope they can get it sorted. I have known a couple of people with lepto, one was a workmate a couple of years ago, he lost quite a bit of weight but recovered okay. The other was a beef farmer who was the brother of a dairy farmer I worked for one uni holidays in the late 80's, he was in bed for 18 months initially. That dairy farmer told me never touch a dead calf, because you didnt know what it had died of.
    Hopefully it's the modern treatments that make the difference, best of luck!

    You're stuck with lepto for life if you get it, can go away for years and then come back and often leaves people with bouts of extreme lethargia, persistent coughs etc.

    Well you definitely are and it's good you can admit that to yourself but I've had a message from a land owner already so I wouldn't say you all are.

    No hurt feelings here bud, I'm mostly just finding it amusing that you and five others think offering to pay to shoot somewhere = wanting something for nothing. That's a pretty interesting logical leap.

    Thewuce I think the guys are just saying it's nice to know a bit about you before wading in, most people do an introduction and talk a bit about yourself and your interests . Welcome aboard.

    Think of it like a pub or other such place where people gather, if its not your local you're probably going to get a pretty frosty welcome by wading in, giving your glass a tap with a spoon and asking if someone can let you use a firearm on their property.
    Nobody knows you from a bar of soap, its common courtesy to introduce yourself to others, get involved in conversation etc before you go making it seem like your sole purpose for being here is to get something for yourself, money or no money is beside the point. We let a few select people on our property to shoot and its because they have been polite, courteous, we have got to know them and we trust them to leave things as they found them, take all safety precautions using their firearms,take heed of our own on farm health and safety policy etc etc, no caretaker of the land worth their salt lets anyone roam round their property with a firearm because they waved some cash under their nose.

    What if you filled multiple glasses with varying amounts of beer, and tapped them in a way which produced amazing music? Are you trying to argue that musicians don't offer anything of value to society, and that a humble glass cannot be used as an instrument?

    Also - it's obvious the OP isn't a bar of soap. Have you ever seen a bar of soap get behind a computer?

    Good job getting a place to shoot so quickly.

    Just ignore those who think they run the forum and can control what other people say and do. If they're not a moderator, tell them to get fucked.

    Some of them are probably Kaitoke members.

    Good luck with the new place to shoot.

    (If you ever need to add anyone to your ignore list, just follow the directions in my signature line.)
