MURRUMBA shooter Geoff Chapman has only missed one or two February or October Warwick Pistol Club shoots in the past 15 years.

"From a visitor's point of view, the shoots are well run and organised," Chapman said.

"I have won a few classes in Warwick and finished with one first and three fourths at the weekend.

"I usually do a bit better in Warwick; there are no prizes for fourth, just the first three," Chapman said.

"Shooting is a bit like golf, you have good days and bad days and you can't put it down to anything."

He rates the Warwick range as one of the best in country Queensland.

Fifteen Murrumba club members from the Caboolture area competed in Warwick.

Junior Murrumba member Sam John won the boys aggregate.

"If he wants to stick at the sport, Sam could represent Australia," Chapman said.

"He is already in the Queensland junior team."

Chapman concentrates on introducing new members to the sport and said the key to representing Australia was putting in the effort.

The men's five-match trophy in A-grade was won by Tom Fulton, a member of the Brisbane International Pistol Club and national champion for 50m black powder, after shooting a score to equal the national record in Adelaide this year.

The three-match Audrey Waltham Handicap Trophy for Warwick members was won by junior shooter Max Constable.

Max and his mother Janelle were the most successful Warwick competitors, both breaking grade in two matches.

Janelle went from D to C-grade in women's air pistol and C to B-grade in centre fire, and Max moved up from D to C-grade in junior air pistol and junior sport pistol.

Warwick member Ross Dossetto won the five-match aggregate in D-grade.

OTHER WINNERS: Women's three-match aggregate winners: A-grade Pauline Tarn (Murrumba); D- grade Sandra Bancroft (South Burnett), girls aggregate Sissy Brindopke (Gold Coast).
