Our next shoot is at 10am this Sunday, May 21, and it will be ordinary targets at both ranges.

One of the shooters who shot for practice on the new international benchrest targets, David Wilson, will be competing at the Greystanes range in Sydney along with his son Brett.

We wish them both all the best.

Brett has also been selected in the four-man NSW Sporting Shooters' Association of Australia (SSAA) Team which will compete later this year, we will let you know how he gets on.

Each weekend we have the popular SK brand of .22 ammo out at the range for licensed shooters.
