Mis­chlewski does it again, and a .303 drops in

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

LO­CAL shooter Rick Mis­chlewski has done it again with a dou­ble range score of 102/6 from a pos­si­ble 105 with Attwood trail­ing on 100/4.

Three mem­bers and a vis­i­tor from Townsville shot Dou­ble 600 me­tres on Satur­day af­ter­noon at the Moss­man and Dis­trict Ri­fle Range.

Shoot­ing con­di­tions on the day were very chal­leng­ing due to a con­stantly chang­ing mirage.

In the Full bore Tar­get di­vi­sion (Peep Sights only) Rick Mis­chlewski had a first round score of 49.3 fol­lowed closely by Neil Attwood with 48.1 – not as many cen­tre bulls as last week!

In the sec­ond round Mis­chlewski dropped two points to score 53.3, with Attwood only one point be­hind on 52.3

The fi­nal score was Mis­chlewski with 102.6 and Attwood on 100.4

Nor­bit Sch­midt, shoot­ing F class (Scope with me­chan­i­cal rest), shot a 53.2 out of 60 and 58.2, giv­ing a to­tal of 111.4 from 126

Cal­lum Cur­tis from the armed ser­vices in Townsville shot Ser­vice Ri­fle (.303 open sight) to score 33 from 50 – a com­mend­able score con­sid­er­ing the weapon is most likely WWII vin­tage.

This was the last shoot for the year.

Shoot­ing will recom­mence on Satur­day, Jan­uary 14.

The club wel­comes any vis­i­tors and new mem­bers. Shoot­ing starts at 1.15 pm

Ev­ery­one wel­come.
