Hunting Rifle Setup & Confirmation

Let's be honest. Despite what they may say, many stores do the absolute minimum when it comes to setting up your new firearm. Scope quickly mounted into the rings, bore zero... it's really not enough to ensure that your new gun is operating at it's best.

Let us fix that for you.

Your gun, your setup, your questions.

This course is pretty much assuming you have recently purchased a new firearm, and want to ensure both it and you are shooting as good as they can.

In regards to the new gun, maybe we can also help out? Just let us know. We also help outfit hunters and shooters - from a new rifle, setup and ready to go, through to specialist clothing. From tried and testing through to exotic. We can sort it.

Required for the course:

  • Your firearm -in safe, fully functional order
  • 40 rounds of your hunting ammunition
  • A mounted, quality optical sight
    • We will be confirming setup, zero and function on the day - please bring instructions and any specialised tools required for the optics
  • Bipod and rear bag (which we can supply)
    • We teach both pack and bipod shooting, but the further out we go, the more we recommend you use a bipod and rear bag.
  • A notebook and pen.
  • Appropriate clothing for the weather.  We don't generally stop for the rain.
  • Backpack, or bag to carry your range equipment.
  • Any personal medication and supplies.
  • Any special dietary requirements or preferences.

Nice to have, but not required:

  • Ballistic Computer - we use a Kestrel, but if you have an app - bring it and let's use it!
  • Laser Rangefinder
  • Binoculars

We will supply:

  • All meals while you are with us, water, etc.
  • Use of a variety of additional equipment, to compare and test out.
  • One-on-one hosting, tutorship and guiding.

Getting There

Let us pick you up!

Our preference would be to collect you in the first morning and drop you back off at the end of the trip.

This also makes the course perfect for passing through Auckland on the way down South for a bigger hunting adventure. We will happily collect you from the Airport.
