Range Overview

The branch operates a rifle range on Weir Road in the Matariki forest. The range is primarily used for competition, sighting in rifles, testing reloads and generally having good time. Range access is included for members of the Auckland Branch of the Deerstalkers Association with their annual membership subscription.

To shoot on the range you must present a valid arms license or be directly supervised by someone with a valid arms license. When on the range, the range officers instructions must be followed at all times. 

The facility includes a 25m, 100m and 200m mound. Most commonly the 25m, 50m and 100m range operate concurrently. Use of the 200m range requires that the others are shut down. Occasional shotgun shoots are also run from the 100m mound and the range is well used by affiliated pistol and black powder clubs.
