Thirteen shooters braved the extreme hot weather at the Narromine-Dubbo rifle range on Saturday when shooting was held over 400 metres.

A rapidly shifting breeze from the north caught most of the thirteen shooters out and the strong mirage made sighting difficult especially for those in F-class using a ‘scope.

At the end of the first stage, Norm Brown led the target rifle shooters with a hit of 48/50, while visiting shooter, Cathy McCauley, held the lead in F-class after firing a 57/60.

Shooting in the second stage saw much of the same conditions which led to some similar scores.

Norm Brown went on to fire a 47/50 to win the A-grade badge with an off-rifle score of 95/100.

Scott Monaghan won the F-class badge with a total of 106/120 and the weekly handicap trophy went to Nick Reardon who is starting to do well in F-class.

The “pin-hole” was won by Cathy McCauley in the first stage, but was also hit by another two shooters later in the day.

Individual scores were:

Lionel Morrish 46/50, F-class total 96/120; Daniel Galea 51/60 (one stage only) Scott Monaghan 53/53, F-class total 106/120; Norm Brown 48/47, off-rifle 95, handicap 5, total 100; Rob McKay 47/47, off-rifle 94, handicap 3, total 97/100; Steve Osborne 36/39, F-class total 75/120;

Clive Simpson 53/49, F-class total 102/120; Cathy McCauley 57/51, F-class total 108/120; Steve King 44/45, visitor total 89/100;

Brett McCauley 43/47, visitor total 90/100; Rob Rainbow 41/45, off-rifle 86, handicap 10, total 96/100;

Nick Reardon 48/56, F-class total 104/120; Locky Simpson 52/53, F-class total 105/120.
