Tar­get shoot­ing

Far North Qld Pis­tol Club

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - JOIN A CLUB -

THE Far North Queens­land Pis­tol is a mem­ber of Pis­tol Shoot­ing Queens­land, which is af­fil­i­ated with Pis­tol Aus­tralia.

It is a tar­get shoot­ing club in which the cal­i­bres of the guns used range from air pis­tol to .38 cal­i­bre. Many of the matches are the same as events at the Olympic Games. There are an­nual State and North­ern Cham­pi­onship Com­pe­ti­tions and mem­bers can progress to In­ter­state, Na­tional and In­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.

En­thu­si­asm and com­mit­ment are all that is needed as coach­ing and help can be given to prospec­tive mem­bers.

Ear and eye pro­tec­tion and en­closed shoes must be worn on the range but no other uni­form is re­quired.

Mem­bers must be over 11 and ju­niors must be ac­com­pa­nied by a re­spon­si­ble adult.

Cur­rrently our mem­bers vary in age from 13 to 80. A mem­ber can be com­pet­i­tive or just shoot for their own en­joy­ment and there is no pres­sure to per­form.

The club is wel­com­ing and friendly. Info: Jo Dau 40981276
