October 2015 - Australian Shooter

Media Officer Kate Fantinel provides an update on the activities of SSAA National, including meetings with the Justice Minister, submissions about the National Firearms Agreement, investigations into misinformed Greens claims, and making it clear that the Adler lever-action shotgun should not be a scapegoat for so-called public safety. RSCPA WA is also accused of abusing its power. Our reviewers check out the Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle, Browning A-Bolt 3 Composite Stalker rifle, Beretta A400 Xplor Action self-loading shotgun, Bushnell Elite Long Range Hunter Scope and Eley Hawk competition shotshells. Ted Mitchell and his son head west to hunt pigs around dams, while Carlo Agostinelli surprises himself and his taxidermist with an impressive trophy stag. We also report on the success of the first ever Brisbane SSAA SHOT Expo, and visit the Queensland shooting range providing a habitat haven for koalas.
