Week 1 Flashback Friday

today 2, April 2020

We will be featuring articles from previous Pistol Australia Bulletins and the QPN in this Flashback Friday feature. We are not sure if it will be weekly or fortnightly at this stage (we have to make sure we have enough content to get us through these challenging times!). We are trying a couple of options to see which works best for our members, with option one being a few excerpts from the magazines of the year, this week starting with Flashback to 1968 or option 2 we have included sections from the then Amateur Pistol Shooting Union of Australia (APSUA), as we were then known as, September issue of the Australian Pistol Shooters’ Bulletin.

We acknowledge the Editor of the day, Joan Tremelling.

We hope you enjoy reading about our past, you may find somethings haven’t changed!

Flashback to 1968

September Issue Stories – remember everyone, this is back before we had all the matches we now have and our formation had been encouraged for the 1956 Olympics.
