NEWS FROM THE RANGE: Campbeltown Pensioners’ Target Shooting Visit – July 2019

Campbeltown’s “Retired not Expired” charity group made another trip to the Hutton Range in late July. Various last-minute difficulties and prior commitments conspired to make the group somewhat smaller than usual, but the six shooters who attended all had a great time and shot very well.

A brief talk on the history, equipment and role of the Sniper got everyone in the mood for some marksmanship (and markswomanship) before the range session and Paula laid-on a tasty spread of free refreshments to keep the shooters’ energy levels up whilst they put several hundred rounds down-range during their 4-hour shooting session.

Lesley from Campbeltown earned the Ladies top prize with a consistent performance averaging just over 86 points while Jeff from Gigha took home the honours for the Gents with a remarkable 97.8 average.

Thanks go to Michele and her team for doing a great job organising the group – we look forward to seeing you again in a few weeks.

NEWS FROM THE RANGE: Stag Group Shoot – July 2019

The Hutton Range hosted another successful Stag Celebration Shoot in Mid July. This one was organised by Mikaeil Mirzaali for his best mate Josh Parker and a group of their friends from around the UK. Sam Parker (Best Man), William Shrier, Paul Young, Thomas Ratcliffe-Law & Jack Hampton made up the rest of the group. These friends all met at Manchester University whilst studying for various degrees a few years ago and were on a whisky tour of Scotland as part of Josh’s Stag celebrations. Some good shooting was done on the day and the whole group went away very happy.
Congratulations Josh on your upcoming nuptials as well as on your choice of friends!

Many thanks to Machrihanish Gun Club members Gareth Parker and Craig Anderson for helping out as Range Assistants during the event and to Hugh & Rhonda at the Tin Roof Diner for feeding our guests before their shooting session.
