Stu­dents of gun safety

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

MUN­DUB­BERA Small Bore Ri­fle Club fa­cil­i­tated a gun safety course at Mun­dub­bera last Satur­day.

The 24 par­tic­i­pants re­ceived a safety cer­tifi­cate and are now el­i­gi­ble for a gun li­cence.

Many par­tic­i­pants were ju­niors and all in­di­cated they in­tended to re­turn to the club for coach­ing and com­pe­ti­tions.

“I will be back, I have had a shoot to­day and scored five out of five,” Lily Wilson, 15, said.

“I have shot a few guns be­fore to­day, but never like this.”

Brothers Ethen and Cory Wain, from Mun­dub­bera, would like to shoot on their par­ents’ prop­erty and need a li­cence to do so.

“Even though I en­joyed to­day’s shoot, we have big­ger guns at home and we use them for pest con­trol,” Ethen said.

“Dad has a 22/250 and a 303. They pack a bit more punch than th­ese 22s,” he said.

The fa­cil­i­ties at the Mun­dub­bera Small Bore Rif­fle Club are im­prov­ing all the time.

With the re­cent ad­di­tion of spe­cially de­signed LED lights, night shoots will soon be in­tro­duced.

The club has con­tin­ued, after the flood re­cov­ery, to make even more ex­ten­sions and has more on the draw­ing board.

Mem­bers are giv­ing ev­ery­thing they have to this club and it re­ally shows.

“We are con­tin­u­ing to make this range the best of the best,” Ch­eryl Does­sel said.

“The com­mit­tee is proud of what is here and it has come from some hard work from a friendly group of peo­ple who are good at work­ing to­gether.”
