    Shooting ranges near west Auckland/Kumeu over 400m?

    Hey,
    I'm sure this has been covered somewhere. But google seemed to come up dry inc a forum search.
    I'm looking for shooting ranges around Auckland that are +100m. Would be really keen on 400-500m ranges and the only one I can find is in Clevedon. Which is miles away!

    Anyway know of any? I live in Swanson.

    Also on a side note, I remember 4wding down a shooting range just off karioitahi beach. Anyone know what this one is and the range it has?

    Someone on here made a google map with them all and everyone across the country added other ranges in.

    Was it @stretch?

    I might have started it, but it's up to you lot to populate it
    So if you find one, put it on the map
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    I think Clevedon is the only one. One of the NZDA ones in Riverhead goes to 200, Think it's the North Auckland branch.

    There's 200m at Riverhead Auckland NZDA sometimes check the calendar here : NZDA Auckland Branch

    Tokoroa Shooting Complex does 200m as well, but if you're upset about Clevedon, you'll blow a fuse about getting to Tokoroa

    There's always Tauranga. Amount of Jaffa's heading that way you may as well be in Auckland.

    Everyone is tall to you Gibo (well except Dundee and Pengy).
    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

    or google Akarana rifle range, probably same distance as Clevedon for you though.
    There's a thread on here somewhere recently,
    Also another one being set up north of Auckland around Glorit ways. Not sure if its up & running yet ?
