Range Access

The range is licensed for use only to financially current NZDA Hutt Valley Branch Inc. members. There is no casual public access at any time. Committee members in attendance will  check for identity and a current firearms licence. Anyone without proof of membership or licence will be expected to leave the range immediately.

All current financial members that have a current firearms licence are able to utilize the range.  To access the range we recommend obtaining a range gate key (see below).  This will allow you to drive to the range.  Without a range gate key there is an 800m walk from the Rimutaka Incline car park to the range. 

You are expected to bring your own target frames and to remove all rubbish.

Shooting at glass or the use of tracer/incendiary type ammunition is not permitted. Users must comply with all rules and conditions.

  The range is available 7 days per week from 08:30 through to dark for causal NZDA Hutt Valley Branch Inc. member use unless booked. Bookings are advertised on the range page however access is not guaranteed at any time and NZDA Hutt Valley Branch Inc. reserves the right to cancel access at any time.

All users are expected to make way for contractors and maintenance work.

All NZDA Hutt Valley Branch Inc.members who use the range, by doing so, agree to comply with club rules and current range standing orders.

During daylight saving hours, KPC holds regular casual shoots on Tuesdays from 6 - 8pm so will be present to run the range. All shooting welcome.


Range Bookings

Competitions are held most Sundays at our range by both the branch and other shooting organizations. Morning shoots usually start at 08:30 with afternoon shoots starting at 13:00 through to a preferred finish time of 16:30. To avoid getting to the range on a Saturday, or in some cases a week day, only to find that there is an organized shoot in progress please check the Range Calendar page before you leave. The range is available for private hire by HVNZDA members and approved clubs at 1/2 and full day rates. Note that Saturday's are seldom booked to provide for casual member use.

Email hvnzda.range@gmail.com for information or contact details of other clubs.

Note:

  • No firearms are to be used BEFORE 08:30 any day of the week out of respect for our neighbours.
  • For member's casual use of the range please check the club website for bookings and availability.
  • The range may be closed without notice if there is work required in the area adjacent to the range.
  • At all times, one member must act as Range Officer
  • The Kaitoke Pistol Club runs casual shoots at the range every Tuesday night from 18:00, during daylight saving. Visitors are welcome to join them and have a go. The range is still able to be used by club members for other shooting

Range gate keys & range rules

A gate key can be issued to current senior financial members. The loaning of keys to non-members is not permitted as the range is a private facility and requires users to be financial club members, comply with club rules and be fully conversant with the current Range Standing Orders. 

Keys and locks are changed on ANZAC day each year.

Note:  Gate keys are available at the monthly branch meetings. Print out a copy of the Key Lease agreement (below) and bring a signed copy along with your firearms licence.
