Well done to those who took part and congratulations to this years winners

Sunday 21st July was a glorious afternoon for shooting, and the Long Range Pistol Competition which was a one class event, was held on Crabbe Main Range.

This event really tests the competitor to the maximum.

This year was no different from any other year we have held this event, concentration, sight picture and trigger release is the key to the perfect shot.

Although the turn out was rather low, we had two class A shooters and one from class B enter the event.

As you will see the competitors made the most if it and sheltered from the sun.

Here are the result for this years competition
