Right on target
AFTER 50 years of shooting, Ipswich marksman Gordon Duncan won the Darling Downs District Rifle Association Prize Shoot on Sunday for the first time.
Duncan recalled being coached by Warwick shooter Bronc Burling in his early years in the sport.
He scored 149.20 out of a possible 150 to win the event.
"This is one of the biggest wins of my career," he said.
Duncan competes twice a year at Risdon Range.
He has coached Australia teams, a role which is more important than being a team member, according to Southern Downs Rifle Club member Rob Bondfield.
"An extremely good coach like Gordon will be asked to coach rather than shoot," he said.
Crows Nest/Goombungee district president Ashley Bidgood won the Percy Gartner Memorial Shoot on Saturday.
