May 2015 - Australian Shooter

Politicians unite to launch the Parliamentary Friends of Shooting group, and Media Office Kate Fantinel reports on the expensive witch-hunt that has been the Greens-led Senate Inquiry into gun-related violence and how the majority report is a positive outcome for Australian shooters. We look at the history of the pioneering Bounceback conservation program in South Australia and the vilification of hunters in the public land hunting debate in Western Australia. Thomas Tabor reviews the Henry H010 .45-70 lever-action rifle, John McDougall field-tests the Fabarm Axis RS12 Trap shotgun and John Pond looks at the BSA GRT Supersport SE air rifle. Ted Mitchell hunts red deer for pies, while Brett Morris takes a family trip in search of goats. We also encourage SSAA members to roll up their sleeves and become blood donors.
