This years event on 8th-11th August 2019 saw entries from Jersey, Guernsey, Germany and the United Kingdom. A total of 31 participants took part in a mixed discipline event held at the Jersey Pistol Club ranges.

The event started off on Thursday afternoon with the IPSC match which CIPSA (Channel Island Practical Shooting Association) kindly set up for us.

It consisted of five challenging stages, which was split into four divisions, Open, Standard, Production and Revolver. A Big thank you goes out to Alain Cabaret and his team for making this possible.

Friday morning was the 1500 PPC event, a 150 round event, from distances of 7 meters to 50 meters, where people try to score the maximum score of 1500 points. This event has six classes, High Master, Master, Expert, Sharpshooter, Marksman and Unclassified.

Saturday was more varied, we had the Police Pistol 2, Police Pistol 1, Service Pistol B and 9mm,

Sunday, the final day we held the Pocket Pistol, Service Pistol B, and the International Team Event.

Both Maik Murwig (BDMP) and our very own Mark Dubras were on form and managed a Maximum 300 in the Police Pistol 1  International Team Event.

This was a personal best for Mark Dubras. Well done guys.

The German team were on form and pipped us to the post in the International Team Event, coming 1st, Jersey, 2nd and the UK 3rd.

A Special thanks go out to David Brandenburger, Dietmar Hoenersch and Anna Milke for the wonderful German Evening held on Friday evening, Charles Murton for helping with the stats, both Steve Lamb,John Robinson and David Brandenburger for helping on range, as well as all the other range staff, also last but not least Gerry Weir and Family for the catering on Sunday .

We all did our bit and made this years event one to remember. Thank you all for coming and see you in Leitmar next year.

Some accommodation was really basic

Bermuda a bit like Green Island with palm trees?  Looking at the photo I don’t think so, white sand blue sky and a lagoon.  I suppose someone has to go to these far away places sacrificing their creature comforts, forgoing black butter, bean crocks and other Jersey delicacies in order uphold the honour of shooting in Jersey.

JPC Team 10
Plenty of support

After many months of meticulous planning, acquiring the required qualification scores, and rounding up sufficient cash, the journey began at Jersey Airport on 10th July 2013.

The team comprising Mick Radcliffe, Mike Quenault, Nikki Holmes, Chris Le Moeligou and George Winstanley, packed their pistols and headed past Guernsey firstly to London. After a stopover of several hours in Gatport Airwick they eventually took to the skies in search of the sub-tropical paradise island known as Bermuda.

Where are me duty free’s, and he said he was a Police Man

After 7 hours of BA cattle-class in an air-conditioned cigar tube thay arrived in Bermuda. The team, captained by Mick Radcliffe, soon realized that despite their age and infirmity they would have to carry their own luggage. After being stripped searched by the Bermudian Police, Mick could only wonder whether this was a sign of things to come.

Although it would be nice to say that the next few days were blurred in the memory due to alcohol intake however, despite all of Mick’s exhortations, the team rather let the side down by refusing to participate in any drinking competitions until at least after the first day’s competition.

The conditions were hot which with very high levels of humidity made shooting difficult for all of the competitors. On the first day of competition in the open-sided marquee used for the air events the temperature reached about 48c. Bad for the pistol shooters but it must have been terrible for the rifle shooters in all their kit.

The Bermudian hosts having had firearms banned for nearly 5 decades have no experience of organizing shooting events and, unfortunately the CRO they imported to look after the 25m events was a qualified IPSC judge with minimal experience of ISSF.

Unfortunately when we arrived the ranges were still not complete and the draft schedule was not workable. After great effort by all of the competitors and particularly by a number of the Bermuda support team a workable schedule was put together and all events were held.

Despite all of the difficulties our pistol shooters persevered and came back with a great crop of medals and Cap’n Mick was extremely proud of every one of them.

PS One or two of the team did indulge in one or two fermented beverages after the competitions were over. The good news is that no-one missed the plane on the return journey   !!!

The Jersey Pistol Club has a remarkable record of success in international competitions spanning a number of decades. The photo below shows Carol Graham receiving her award as the British Ladies Air Pistol Champion at the 14th British Airgun Championships in 1988.

Carol is by far the most successful high-level competitor that the JPC (and probably Jersey) has had to date. Carol’s achievements include:

  • Shooting for Great Britain in the 1984 Olympic Games, held in Los Angeles
  • Shooting for Great Britain in the 1996 Olympic Games, held in Atlanta
  • A number of Commonwealth Games medals
  • British Champion 10+ times
  • Held/Holds a number of British shooting records.

Success in competition is broadly shared by a number of Jersey Pistol Club members, with the following individuals having shot at the Commonwealth Games (although not always representing Jersey): Carol Graham, Carol Benest, Dave Ward, Denis Remon, Derek Bernard, John Renouf, John Rolfe, Marcus Hill, and Mike Quenault.

Arguably our most ‘visible’ successes have occurred at the biannual International Island Games which are well covered by the local media outlets. Over the years, an array of JPC members have brought home medals in a wide variety of shooting disciplines, as illustrated in the following table.
