    Bay of Plenty Service Rifle Association

    We shoot every second Saturday at the Awakeri Shooting Federation. We also sometimes have access to an NRA range on private land for longer range shooting. Our home range at ASF gives us provision to shoot from close range out to 200 meters. We shoot a bunch of core matches at every shoot which are common amongst service rifle clubs throughout the country. We also generally have a fun course of fire set up at the end of each day for something different, which may be a pistol or shotgun shoot, run n gun etc.

    New members and all rifle types are welcome - you don't need to own an AR15 to participate, with the ranges we shoot at and the size of the scoring zones it comes down to who exhibits the most skill and discipline on the day, rather than who has the most expensive and fancy set up. Dust off the old Enfield

    We typically have a theme at every shoot, such as "All American" or "Eastern Bloc" but as above, you can shoot with what ever, you just may not be eligible for the theme trophy or what ever.

    It's a great club and you are guaranteed to meet some good people and enjoy yourself.

    PM me if you have any questions.

    I really do think that I live in the wrong region sometimes.

    You haven't heard of ASRA? No offence Beavis, but if Ryan is suggesting there's a lack of Auckland SR action, I have to correct that impression, before he starts driving too far!
