    Invercargill shooting

    Hello everyone!
    So, now that I have moved to "InverVegas" I am wondering if we have any of the member in Invercargill who like to shoot targets at long ranges, as I said before, I am new in town and will also like information regards deerstalkers, long range/bench rest shooting style and pistol club too(I am new to pistol and know the hard yards I have to go).

    Ok, thank you in advance.

    That might be the Dunsdale @223nut is talking about; a hunter (firearm bearing optimist in shorts n gumboots I believe) was temporarily confused (i.e. lost) up there recently.

    I've heard of deer being shot up there but it'll be busy w campers at the moment.

    Could be the place for a bit of Long range gong ringing if there's not too many animals around

    Hi everyone, thank you kindly for the info it is very much appreciated, right now I am interested in a place where I can only and solely shoot some targets at close and preferable long range, hunting unfortunately is out of the menu for me till I get better with my back.
    I would prefer a place where I could "kind of" hook up with a "please" phone call or a place where I can access safely and fire "few" shots, some keen long range farmers, etc.
    Anyway, very thankful for all the replies they are appreciated.

    Cheers

    Mac
