Students of gun safety
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.”
