July 2020 - Australian Shooter

Mike Papps’ life has revolved around the shooting sports. Since growing up in Adelaide in the 1930s and ’40s he was introduced to the sport at a young age and went on to represent Australia at both Olympic and World Championship level. Senior correspondent Rod Pascoe has spent time with the man to document a fascinating life which evolved into the establishment of Frontier Arms, a thriving business which Mike continues to be involved in to this day. Elsewhere this month our Media Officer Nadia Isa has been finding out how our OIympic shooters have kept themselves busy and maintained their preparations during the uncertainty of COVID-19, Con Kapralos continues our series on favourite rifle-cartridge-scope combinations and under review are the Zoli Kronos HR 11 Competition shotgun, the Sauer S100 Ceratech rifle and the latest Rangeguide 10×50 rangefinder binoculars from German Precision Optics. And don’t forget the July digital supplement which you can read HERE.
