IN FOCUS Dubbo Pistol Club goes up in smoke!
PISTOL shooters specialising in black powder arrived at the Dubbo Pistol Club to compete in the Western Plains Black Powder Championships over the weekend of May 4 and 5.
Top athletes from the NSW State Team took to the line alongside contenders from Victoria and our local lads.
Black powder shooting is a detailed, messy and mysterious operation, resulting in a very loud noise, lots of smoke and hopefully a neat hole in the black ring on the paper target 25 or 50 metres away!
Big winners on the day (pictured) included David Moore (Sydney), Brian Subkey (Cessnock), Steven Blackburn (Cessnock), John Sammartino (Mt. District), John Simmonds, Bill Parrinelli (St. Ives), Domenic Mastroserio (St. Ives), Les Moncrieff (Mildura), Allan Hennessy (Cowra), Cherie May (Cowra) and Glen Kiem (Dubbo).
Congratulations to all competitors and many thanks to the dedicated group of Dubbo members who made the event such a success.
