The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - THE SAUCE -

IT’S an an­nual bond­ing ses­sion held at the ACT Ma­jura Park Gun Club where shoot­ing en­thu­si­asts from the Na­tion­als chal­lenge their Coali­tion col­leagues to a few rounds of clay pi­geon prac­tice.

Or­gan­ised by gun en­thu­si­ast Brid­get McKen­zie — the Na­tion­als sen­a­tor once spoke of her dis­dain at the snob­bery of city dwellers about firearms — the Au­gust 16 event saw both pol­lies and staff load­ing up.

The Sauce notes the tim­ing of the gath­er­ing — ex­actly one day be­fore the Peter Dut­ton camp be­gan plot­ting its move on Mal­colm Turn­bull. Co­in­ci­dence?

As for shoot­ing prow­ess, not even Sen­a­tor McKen­zie nor for­mer SAS sol­dier An­drew Hastie could out­shoot Lib­eral MP Ian Good­e­nough, ac­cord­ing to a Na­tion­als source.

“(Mr Good­e­nough) is the last per­son you’d think would be a crack shooter,” the source said. “But you wouldn’t want to mess with him.”

Back L-R: J ames Paterson, Ian Good­e­nough, David L ey­on­hjelm, Ben Mor ton, Brid­get McK en­zie. Front L-R: An­drew Has tie, An­drew Howarth.

Mr Good­e­nough.
