The first pistol and revolver shooting competition for this year was successfully organised by the Malta Rifle & Pistol Shooting Club at the Victoria Ranges, Tal-Handaq last Sunday. Sixteen shooters competed in the two events namely, the ISSF 0.22 rimfire and 0.38 centrefire categories. In excellent weather conditions all shooters had a very enjoyable time with very good scores being registered in both events.

Anthony Mifsud took the first event by storm and with some accurate shooting, he registered the best score of the day to win the 0.22 event by a score of 340 points. He was followed closely in second place by Charles Wallbank who shot a score of 332 with his new Walther GSP pistol. Michael Sammut was third on 308 points.

In the centrefire category, the same two shooters changed placings in that Charles Wallbank this time had the better of Anthony Mifsud by shooting an excellent 348 points to Mifsud’s 334 points. Michael Risiott came very close in 3rd position with a score of 333 points.
