April 2018 - Australian Shooter

A celebration of the 70th anniversary of the formation of the SSAA takes pride of place in our April edition of Australian Shooter. We look back at how the body came into being in 1948, at some of the events of that year, and the many achievements of the organisation in the interim decades. Elsewhere, the magazine is as busy as ever with Daniel O’Dea taking us on a journey around the annual US SHOT Show in Las Vegas. On the home front, there is a message from Federal Sports Minister Senator Bridget McKenzie, ahead of the Commonwealth Games. Royce Wilson steps back in time to assess the Sten Machine Carbine while Henri Lach also gives a nod to the past by detailing restoration efforts on a vintage shotgun. Items reviewed include three riflescopes from Hawke Optics and the X-51 v3 Range Camera System. And don’t forget to check out what’s up for grabs on our competition page.
