The High Gun winner for the October shoot went to Australian representative Richard Piotrowski, who managed to shoot a perfect score all day.

The club’s members have been busy throughout the past month attending a number of meets at nearby clubs but have not struck luck.

Next month's shoot will be held on Sunday, November 19 at 12pm for a barbecue lunch.

Contested events will consist of a 25 target double barrel, 50 target single barrel continental and a 25 target handicap.
