    Rifle, 3GUN and Pistol Shooting

    If one was in Auckland and wanting an introduction, education and training in 3GUN, Pistol and Safe Shooting practises in general...where would be the best place for one to go? I have seen the new Auckland range coming and pre-registered there, but wondering if there is anything in the meantime? I have emailed Waiuku Club...anywhere else? or any coaches around the Auckland area? Being new to all this I do also need general time and experience with my rifles but would like to work towards learning more and being involved in a new sport. (I currently have a 308 Tikka and an AR15) - Apologies if this has been covered before, I did do a quick search but thought id ask anyway.

    there's Warkworth (Warkworth Pistol Club) and, rumour has it, Dargaville (check the Pistol New Zealand page for their contact details).

    speaking of PNZ, there's a 3gun/multigun section there.

    Thanks, I think Warkworth might be full-up but will check again.

    The Omni club seems to be taking in a few new members. Try them.

    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

    Warkworth would be the 1st choice for regular shooting, but yup, there's a waiting list for membership. Man on Man competition in Jan is a hoot. And Hamilton and Waiuku pistol clubs also do some 3Gun, there's just a wee drive to get there.

    The multigun currently popular isn't the same 3Gun seen in the US, each stage is shot with only 1 x firearm.But Man on Man comp uses all 3 guns on one stage, check out the video at :
    The Warkworth Pistol Club


    3Gun Nationals earlier this year (not me by the way).

    Auckland Shooting Club is trying to set up decent 3Gun ranges, like Rotorua has, so alas you're just going to have to wait.

    If you're after pistol training, pretty hard to go past Chris - Competition Guns Limited

    Thanks for that - great info, do you know if Chris does training courses? or something along those lines? Is it the same Chris thats setting up the Auckland Shooting Club?

    Yes it's the same and yes he still does pistol training but shooting options at APC are quite restricted now with only 1 person per range and limited time. Best option is to drop Chris a line, but the shooting season is coming to a peak now with North Island Champs this weekend, South Island Champs next month, then Nationals in November.
