One point off
The Hedland Sporting Shooters Club held State grade-compliant competitions in smallbore and rifle cartridge over the weekend.
Philip Murray stole the show yet again on Sunday in the rifle cartridge competition, missing the club record of 29 targets down by one point.
He was followed by Nesbit Anderson on 18, Di Nichollas on 15, and Chris Lefroy on 14.
In smallbore, many shooters ran short of their average scores.
Murray took first place over Lefroy, with both men shooting 21 targets down and Lefroy second after three countbacks.
Peter Nichollas was third on 20, Di Nichollas was fourth and Anderson had a shocker with 16 targets.
The club has just acquired a scrap metal buyer for spent bullet casings.
Club members are now trying to figure out the fastest way to pick up thousands of non-magnitised brass pieces from the sand around the shooting sheds at their Pippingarra range.
