SHOOT­ING: Cen­tral Bur­nett Gun Club mem­ber Liz Stevens be­lieves any­one can be­come a top shot, you just need the right mind­set.

“It’s mind over mat­ter, it’s easy for peo­ple to over-think it and as a re­sult you don’t get the best re­sult,” Stevens said.

“I be­lieve any­one can be­come a shooter but you’ve just got to re­mem­ber not to over-think it.

“You should just re­lax, get out there and con­cen­trate on those three to four sec­onds and that’s it. Once you’ve shot, walk away and breathe.”

Par­tic­i­pants from across Queens­land came to­gether

at the week­end for the club’s an­nual two-day shoot.

Stevens said the ma­jor­ity of mem­bers who had a shoot per­formed well.

“Like all clubs out there we were hop­ing for a big­ger turnout but due to other sports tak­ing place we only had a lim­ited amount of mem­bers make it to the two-day shoot,” she said.

“We had peo­ple come from Biloela, Chinchilla, Gladstone and even as far as the Sun­shine Coast.”

Stevens has been a mem­ber for the past 10 months and said she has seen some tal­ent com­ing through at the gun club.

Gif­ford Stevens and Brent Cham­bers are two mem­bers who have shown mas­sive im­prove­ment at the Cen­tral Bur­nett Gun Club this sea­son.

Cham­bers, who par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual two-day shoot at the week­end, re­cently up­graded from C to B-grade.

“Ev­ery club has their two-day shoot so since Mun­dub­bera have held theirs, it’ll be an­other club that will host it,” Stevens said.

“Since all mem­bers came here, we should make the ef­fort to at­tend their club and sup­port them on their two-day shoot.”

The Cen­tral Bur­nett Gun Club is al­ways on the look­out for new mem­bers.

“Those in­ter­ested should come on the third Sun­day of ev­ery month and we’ll be here shoot­ing,” Stevens said.

“You can call the club on 4161 3146 to find out more on what we do.”
