Pine Rivers Shooting Club

PRSCi is a relatively new sporting club whose members have been working with the Moreton Bay Regional Council to establish a shooting facility within the Pine Rivers Community. We have recognised a need for sporting shooters on the north side of Brisbane to be provided a facility to conduct both long arm and handgun disciplines safely and responsibly. Our immediate focus is an indoor facility. Our aim is to be able to provide our members and visitors with the broadest scope of shooting as possible.

Service Pistol Combined Services

Pistols must comply with firearms legislation for the state of residency of the member. Members must also possess the appropriate handgun licence and registration. The 3-Positional Core match is used to obtain the competitor’s grade. The rule book contains many different matches for Pistol, several of which are shot as graded, while the rest are contested as open.

Pistols used in Combined Services Pistol competition are classed as follows:

Class 1 (Defence) handguns comprise original issue or faithful reproduction centrefire service handguns, with a modified barrel length or calibre only to comply with national and state laws. Competitors may use revolvers or self-loading pistols, which are or have been on regular issue to an army, navy or air force.

Class 2 (Law Enforcement/Police) handguns comprise original issue or faithful reproduction centrefire service handguns, with a modified barrel length or calibre only to comply with national and state laws. Competitors may use revolvers or self-loading pistols, which are or have been on general issue to defence or law enforcement organisations. A Class 1 handgun cannot be classed as a Class 2 handgun.

Class 3 (Accurised/Modified/Target) handguns comprise any Class 1 or 2 service issue centrefire handgun or faithful reproduction that has been modified from its original specification, either post-production or at the factory, and may feature target-shooting-adjustable sights, hand-customised grips, barrels, trigger systems, trigger saddles or compensators.

Class 4 (Rimfire) handguns comprise any rimfire handgun that substantially replicates the functions of a Class 1, 2 or 3 handgun.

Class 5 (Black Powder) handguns comprise any original issue or faithful reproduction black powder military handgun, either a revolver or single-shot pistol, which has been on general issue to an army, navy, police or para-military force.

Combined Services Pistol competition permits the use of a handgun with a trigger weight no less than 1.36kg. Both stages of double-action triggers on revolvers must comply in both stages. The holsters used must be practical, safe, serviceable and fit the handgun. In supplementary events, where there is a requirement to draw from the holster, the shooter must hold their state or territory’s qualification and the holster must be of a type that covers the trigger. Gloves or mittens are not permitted, unless required for medical reasons. Optical aids such as telescopic, red dot and optical sights, spotting scopes or binoculars are not permitted during the competition, except under direction of a designated official for target checking. A shooter may not use or wear any optical aids or devices of any type that provide an unfair advantage.

Western Action Match

The Western Action shooting discipline, combines lever-action rifles, sided by side shotguns and single action revolvers with roots dating back to circa 1800 - 1899. They were the days of the old American west where brands like Colt and Winchester were household names.

Today, Western Action is a very popular shooting sport here in Australia and of course the USA and many other countries. Participants use mainly modern replicas of the historically significant firearms of the era. We use single-action revolvers, lever-action and slide-action rifles and carbines, lever-action and pump-action shotguns and side-by-side shotguns without automatic ejectors. Targets are generally reactive and vary in shape and dimension. Not only are shooting skills developed and tested in regular matches but so too are the attire and presentation skills of the shooters. Most of us adopt a moniker or handle that draws upon the rich folk lore and genuine history and heritage of the days and folks o the old American West.

Western Action is always true to its roots and that is why blackpowder and smokeless powder guns are both at home in this friendly shootin' competition that is enjoyed equally by young and old, girls and boys alike. So pardner, if you think ya might have a hankerin' to try out and join our posse of good Western Action folk at SSAA Brisbane, ya'll just get in touch with our team at the Post Office, er, I mean the Branch Office to find out more. Until then, keep yer powder dry and we wish ya Happy Trails.
