Service Pistol, 25 Yard Service, 25m Black Powder and Air Pistol were the matches contested on the day.
The club again had the pleasure of Evan Browns company from Reddestone Pistol Club who visited and tried his hand at Service Pistol Unrestricted. We also had a local visitor who came to see what the club was like and expressed a keen interest in the Service matches but particularly in Black Powder. We look forward to their company again in the near future.
The 25m Black Powder match contested was the first Black Powder match held at Glen Innes Pistol Club in quite some time. Wayne Unicomb and Rick Bowen seemed very pleased to be blowing the dust off their gear while Garry “Dusty” Miller was using his new Black Powder Revolver for the first time in a match and was over the moon. Jan Bowen however, who had to wait for Rick to finish the Black powder match, didn't seem quite as elated but you can't please everybody all the time so she took a hit for the team and waited in the car.
It was good to see Black Powder making a come back at the club and I'm sure there will be plenty more of it in the future.
