Issue 22 – October 2018 - The Australian Junior Shooter

Lachlan Adolph has pride of place on the cover of our spring edition after his world title-winning performance in the Fifty Calibre Shooters Association championships in New Mexico. The 13-year-old was a runaway winner in the junior category and an impressive eighth overall from a highly competitive field of 80 shooters. In a hunting vein, young Carl Redlich discovers that going bush with dad Chris, and shadowing his every move, is the best way to learn the hunter’s craft and enjoy the rewards it brings. For the tech-savvy youngsters out there, our Communications Officer Sam Talbot gets to grips with the VR Experience by Aimpoint and finds it almost as good as a real-life hunting expedition. Elsewhere, Ben Jimenez takes us through the importance of gun range etiquette and Dick Eussen outlines why it pays to be bush-ready – always! And in our juniors-only competition there’s the chance to win a 100w halogen lamp from Lightforce valued at almost $130.
