Carols on the range this year will be on Saturday 16 December:

On the weekend of 19th & 20th March QRA conducted its Champion of Champions and City V Country matches on Electronic Targets at Duncan Rifle Range.  This event was the first in a number of trials in the lead up to shooting the 2016 Queens Series on ET’s. 

As with any trial, systems are placed under stress to see where the possible areas of concern exist.  The matches were conducted successfully with the trial providing a number of areas for improvement in processes and policies.  

The QRA remains committed to seeing the 2018 Commonwealth Games Full Bore event conducted on Electronic Targets.

Memorable first shoot at Gatton

The first experience of Gatton Rifle Range was a memorable one for many shooters on Sunday, March 13.

The Gatton-Glenore Grove Club hosted its first invitational event -- 15 and 10 shots at 600 yards -- in challenging conditions. There was a flukey wind, sometimes almost calm and with a gust strong enough to buckle a flag pole. Plus a rain interruption for good measure.

Despite the weather, there were some splendid scores with Crows Nest shooter John Gilliland notching a possible 25 bulls with 13 centres.

Four shooters were in a tussle for the minor A Grade placings only one shot behind the winner, with some impressive scores in the breezy conditions.
