Ipswich shooter scores again at Beaudesert
Top Ipswich shooter Rob Rush showed his liking for the challenging Beaudesert rifle range with a convincing win in the annual Open Prize Shoot on Sunday.
He beat a high class field to secure the grand aggregate trophy, missing just one bullseye in 30 shots over three ranges.
Rob who last won at Beaudesert in 2012, is a three times Queens Prize winner and has coached at international level.
His score of 149 with 18 centre bulls put him a shot clear of Beaudesert local Lee Robinson in second with Gold Coast’s Danny O’Meara a close third.
