    Dunedin or Central Otago Rifle Range

    Hi Guys,

    I've just got a whole lot of new ammunition loaded and need to sight the rifle in for at least 100m.

    Does anyone know of any rifle ranges around Dunedin or Central Otago (preferably close to Cromwell) that are open on week days so I can sight the rifle in? I'm away this weekend, unfortunately, and planning on hunting the weekend after. I don't really want to carry all the sighting gear into the hunting block to sight it in there.

    Cheers

    I second that, the only range that I can find is over towards Dunedin! Any info gratefully received. Cheers

    Crawford hills rd has the pistol club with the clay target shooting club on the adjacent bit of land. They are both organised clubs, im not sure that you can just rock on up with a rifle to sight in tho.
    The local deerstalkers one is good but you run the risk of a mad crazy neighbour woman that likes to walk her dog on it from the hot end in then bollock the fuck out of you for shooting a gun even tho your actually legally using PRIVATE land that she is trespassing on(she has done this to others in the area who were carrying out rabbit control work). I refuse to go anywhere near it now cos of her stupid behaviour(known as a nutbar shitstirrer anyway).

    She's friends with the landowners wife. As a firearm user its easier and sometimes more sensible to avoid people like this cos they always yell and stamp their foot harder to be heard and self asserted over others.
    Just the way it is in some places mate
