Yes, well done the aussies. Jim Bailey is amazing. Just look at his center count for the Queens. I was helping score for the 900 yard 15 shot TR finals, for the guy Gross from the USA who made the final. I was with Brandon Green on the chalk board and Gross got I think three 2's on the trot. Bailey got a 2 about shot three. It was bloody hard ! It was a left frontal quartering wind. Brandon reckons Trentham is the toughest range he's been to. This years winds were very challenging. Not because they were especially strong, just tricky.

We are talking Target Rifle here Bruce
No doubt it will make it onto the front cover
Lots of good guys among this crowd that I respect however they don't edit the Target Rifle magazine, others in charge of that!
Maybe ONE day a World Champion F Class competitor will?

Final results aren't posted yet but Steve Negus dropped three on the final range and led by four. He'd be a happy man.

Steve Negus first, followed by Mitch Bailey in second place. A tremendous result for our Australian shooters in New Zealand.

Steve Negus got the gold with Mitch getting Silver. With Mitch beating his old man, I reckon he has a bright future in the sport
