    Prospective 1000m Range for Canterbury

    Help spread the word and share this with all your friends & family on facebook (and forum members of course) We know how hard it is getting consent/funding for a new range in NZ. Lets share a "like" and show interest!!

    1000 meters, 3Gun, Silhouette and sport clay is the CSSC's main goal - Hell yes I'm keen!

    I reckon there is an absolute opportunity going begging for something similar in Auckland.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I wonder who is backing it? Would be a great facility if they can get it past the council & co
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    I would have thought they would be really lucky to get it in West Melton, unless they are somehow getting it on defence land. Getting all the lifestyle block owners to agree to it and also fitting the template they use for misses/overshots would be next to impossible.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, plus it's close to all the Waimak river users, might be better out of town a bit.

    During my TF career in 1970s-91 there was a 900m mound on defence west melton rifle range and it was used by the west melton fullbore rifle club. our max qualifying shoots were in those days 300m with SLR.
    was present a couple of times when irate van loads of fijian nassella tussock grubbers had some incentives to duck&dive as 7.62x51 rounds hurtled over the rifle range butts and sailed about ears courtesy of incorrectly set GPMG sights or SLRs ights.(one a mate of mine who attempted to shoot a 100m series with sights set for 600m on his so called very accurate SLR- cost him a few beers that

    The SLR was a great rifle Kotuku. As a young soldier I could do the inch wide by two inches deep grouping standing unsupported bloody near with my eyes closed with the SLR. I couldn't shoot for shit though with the Armalite M16.
