Re: Shooting Australia's target sport athlete of the year

Well deserved Rod. But I think the title of F-Open World Individual Champion doesn't really need any other awards. That was one hell of a performance.

Yes that's correct. Someone else may know who that is.

BTW I learnt recently that we've had another F-Class shooter on the Board for some time. I noticed that George Wittorff shot F/TR in the WARA Queens series.

WARA Queens

This has been run and won without mention on this forum - I dropped the ball because its usually been after the NSWRA Queens. "See Results Here" . Congratulations to all the winners. There were some very good performances, particularly in F-Open and F/TR, which are now getting a decent sha...

Re: New Barrel

I think its fair to say that the majority of top level shooters do run their barrels in, and they are probably the best guide to what is worth doing and what isn't. I've run in about 20 6.5/7mm barrels in my career and have never questioned the need. I believe that 7.62 barrels are less prone to cop...

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Alan, the VRA has always had a certified set of scales and a trigger weight and these are available for the use of members. They are always with me when I am officiating on the range. I would have thought that most VRA members knew that. Certainly all who attended the VRA are familiar with them. Ca...

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Peter,

As CRO of Victoria, perhaps you could persuade the VRA to invest in some certified weights. This would allow shooters to bring their own scales (or personal weights) to Bendigo to check them.

Re: NRAA Elections for Director Positions - Nov 2nd

Great to see you putting your hand up Albert. Your presence on the Board will inject some much needed enthusiasm, energy and optimism. To all, there is work to be done. If there are several F-Class nominees then we have an opportunity (at last) to get fair representation at Board level. Let's not bl...

That's a fair point Denis. I've been guilty of that myself, but we're now in a situation where we can't afford to have that attitude.

Re: The Future

Currently we aren't prepared to make the effort required to increase numbers in TR and F-Class, plus we aren't willing to change to what the market wants. To make matters worse the market is picky - many want things that are very hard to provide on our ranges.

Re: The Future

I believe we'll get what we deserve. If as a group we're prepared to make the effort, then we'll grow and succeed. There is no easy fix.
