A bit about us

Founded in 1973, the Wairarapa Pistol & Shooting Sport Club is based in Gladstone, just east of Carterton in the Wairarapa.  The facility has 6 main ranges and provides shooting up to 200 meters (& 300m on occasion).  We cater for all types of shooters/disciplines and host national competitions and corporate shoots by arrangement.

Shooting hours at the range

  • The range is available to members on 

    • 1st & 3rd Saturdays
    • All Sundays
    • All Wednesday afternoons (see note below re times)
    • All public holidays except Christmas Day, Anzac Day and Good Friday
  • Pre-booked events can be seen in the calendar but please note that events often don't use all the ranges so open up the event and have a look.


WHEN DOWNRANGE (to avoid being shot at!)

  • Finish time at any time of the year is 2000 hrs (8 pm) or dusk -whichever comes first!  In other words when the days get shorter and it gets dark earlier than 2000 hrs, shooting must cease.
  • No shooting during the hours of darkness without committee approval and the landlord's consent; e.g. the range has been used with prior approval during the hours of darkness for police training purposes.

A reminder about Wednesday shooting hours

  • During daylight saving shooting cannot commence until 1500 hrs (3 pm).
  • During non daylight saving, shooting can commence at 1400 hrs (2 pm).
