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.
