 2016 Club Championships CLOSED


There will be a club championship held over the months of August and September and will be off handicap.  With the competition being held over a 2 month period the more you shoot the better chance you have of shooting a good score for your grade and handicap.

This year’s competition will cover air pistol, standard, centre fire sports and for the first time service pistol and .22 bench rest rifle will also be included given the recent popularity of these new matches.

The committee would love to see as many members as possible attend these matches and compete for some of the prizes on offer so please keep some match times free and ensure you get along to compete.

Remember it doesn’t matter at what grade or level that you shoot at as all scores will be off handicap so everyone has a chance to compete on an even field.

News and Results


Prof. Ross Grantham of The University of Queensland says that registered firearm numbers aren't an issue:

"If you think of golfers for example," he said.

"When they go out on the course they will take however many clubs in a bag they need to perform different things.

"It's the same for shooters, you might have a .22 rifle for one thing then a pistol for Olympic style pistol matches and you might have a different weapon for practical shooting matches.

"It's not unreasonable to think that a person might have four per licence."

Outside sporting shooters, there are also people who keep weapons for other reasons.

"There's a lot of heirloom firearms out there, and people tend not to sell firearms," he said.

"Selling them isn't entirely straightforward because of the way the deals have to be brokered through police."

David Shoebridge, take note before your next "Too Many Guns" fear campaign with Gun Control Australia.

Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Pistol right in the doorway.  I set 5 ammunition cartridges right next to it.  Noticing it had no legs of its’ own, I even placed it in my wheelchair to help it get around.  I then left it alone and went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign right in front of our house.  After about an hour, I checked on the gun.  It was still sitting there in the wheelchair, right where I had left it.  It hadn’t rolled itself outside.  It certainly hadn’t killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so.  In fact, it hadn’t even loaded itself.

Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.  Either the media is wrong, and it’s the misuse of guns by PEOPLE that kills people, or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.

Alright, well, I’m off to check on my spoons.  I hear they’re making people fat.
