Bega Gun Club members welcomed the arrival of daylight saving with a two-event program on Sunday.
Officials said the program was aimed to test the senses and reflexes of the field with a 50-target continental opening the day before a 50-target ball trap round.
Officials said there was enough drizzle early to get members cars dusty, before the sun broke free of the clouds and conditions quickly warmed up for the 21 shooters taking part.
Opening with the 50T Double barrel Continental with Phil Body taking AA Grade with a score of 48/50, one ahead of Alf Niesar, 47/50.
Shane Platts led the field in A grade with a score of 48/50, closely followed by Craig Field on 46/50.
B grade once again saw super senior, John Siede show the way with a winning score of 46/50 with Mark Evans collecting 44/50 for second place. George Adamopoulos gained the prize in C grade with a score of 40/50 with Geoff Beht in second with a score of 38/50.
Having warmed up the reflexes, squads returned for the second event, the 50T Ball Trap. As is usual, the targets flew far and fast.
John Gray cleaned up C grade with a score of 34/50.
Runner-up just one target off the pace was Allain Magri with a score of 33/50.
In B grade the front-runners traded places with Mark Evans firing to the front with 41/50 from John Siede just one target back on 40.
Officials said the A grade results also did a reversal with Alf Niesar collecting 41/50 to win from Phil Body with a score of 38/50.
High gun for the shoot went to Alf Niesar with a score of 88/100.
In the shoot raffle, it was John Walker's turn to be kind to the treasurer and leave the club's cash alone - carefully missing the second target to earn himself the consolation meat tray, while also keeping the treasurer happy, officials said.
The Bega Gun Club is a member of the Australian Clay Target Association and visitors and new starters are welcome.
The club meets once a month at the Tarraganda Range near the golf course.
