THE single action shooting competition hosted by the Dalby Pistol Club went off with a bang over the weekend.

President of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia Dalby branch Henry Harvey said the competition was one of the best the club had hosted.

"It went magnificently, we had a really good shoot,” Mr Harvey said.

"We had 145 competitors and a lot of people took prizes who normally don't.

"This year we shot clay pigeons and a variety of people who don't normally win that event did.”

Ruffell Behrens, known as R.C. Shot, was named overall male champion, while Pearl Star from the Gold Coast took out the women's award.

Saturday night saw an 1800s wild west themed dinner, with Mr Harvey delighted at how everyone got into the theme.

"The dinner was very well attended, we get about two thirds of the competitors come to it; others are out visiting friends and family for Easter. I heard that we had to cook about 130 steaks which is a great turnout.

"The costumes were very good as well, outstanding.”

Mr Harvey also noted the next generation had a blast over the two days.

"We had six juniors competing in the shoot, and the camaraderie amongst them was unbelievable.

"These kids had never met each other either, and they were all together the whole time smiling.”
