Well done on some great shooting.
The updated national records and Australian records are attached. To note, Our oldest records are the 50m Class 1 offhand, shot by Greg Fairle in 1986 (97.2) and the 25m Class 1 timed fire shot by Tony Van Elst in 1988 (90.0). I might need to find a good prize for anyone who can beat a national record next year.
