Deceptive breeze on the rifle range

Results from the Gloucester Rifle Club's Sunday target shoot.

Amidst deceptive breezes on Sunday August 8 at 300 metres, in free-class fullbore Hayden Perrott ripped a super 105.2/120, chased hard by Stuart Kerr and Steve Pennicuik on fine scores of 100.1 and 96, as the wind-flags danced cartwheels.

Laurie Smith and Doug Clarke tied it up on a fine 241/250 in 25 metre rimfire, just pipping Steve Pennicuik on a fine 238.

Our next shoot will be on Sunday August 22 (subject to the lifting of the State lockdown), with fullbore at 400 metres from 8.30am and 50 metre rimfire from 11am.

Visitors normally welcome, but not a present due to the current State lockdown. Enquiries regarding club activities and firearms licensing may be made to Steve Pennicuik on 0427059717.

The next Longarms Firearms Licensing Course is planned for Saturday September 4, with prior bookings essential.
