Gladstone Pistol Club shows competition skill
GLADSTONE District Pistol Club competitors have proved their mettle in top class competition in Brisbane in recent weeks . Jim Cruise and Julie Dunks were in good form at last weekend's City of Brisbane Pistol Club Morley Ash Memorial Open ISSF event, figuring strongly in top 10 listings.
Cruise proved he was a 'top gun' by finishing third in the A grade centre-fire event, recording 50 out of 50 midway through the rapid-fire stage to finish with an overall score of 559 out of 600 and claim the bronze medal.
Cruise also finished fourth in the 50 metre pistol event and seventh in the men's air pistol while Dunks was also impressive in snaring sixth spot in the 50 metre pistol, fifth in women's sport pistol and 10th in standard pistol.
Their efforts followed that of clubmate Ross Stieler who, on the previous weekend, finished second in three separate events ? service, unrestricted service and 25 yard service ? at the City of Brisbane PA Open shoot.
The hit-out will prove valuable for Stieler who is gearing up for another stint in Queensland colours at the national championships in Brisbane on the Easter weekend.
