Metallic Silhouette Nationals

2019-03-21

For the first time WAPA fielded a team at the Pistol Australia 2019 Metallic Silhouette Small Bore and Field Pistol National Championships, which were hosted by Pistol Shooting QLD at Toogoolawah Pistol Club.

At the suggestion of keen Metallic Silhouette shooter Mick Greaves, the two person team consisted of himself and Linda Jekel.

The results were Linda was 3rd in the Field Pistol Women’s 2 match aggregate.

The WA team came 3rd in half of the team events.

The organisers were very happy to see WA competing. Traditionally this is not a widely conducted match as our clubs don’t have a full length MS range.

Linda has now won a Pistol Australia plaque from all four disciplines at a National competition:  ISSF-PA-Action and Metallic Silhouette.

Yes, those targets really are a long way away.  Mick shows his style.
