KURRAJONG'S Pat O'Moore went home with three Central West Zone titles yesterday after a strong showing at the Orange and District Pistol Club.
A small but competitive field turned out for the shoot, Orange's colder weather deterring many.
O'Moore took out the standard pistol with a 534, two men's air pistol titles with 556 and 557 and also won the men's air pistol handicap on 591.
Orange's Andrew Bond won two junior titles, the junior air pistol with 395 and the junior sports pistol with 421 but had to fight it out with two other Orange juniors for the handicap placings.
Scott Rawson took out the junior air pistol handicap title with 683 ahead of Bond on 650 and Orange's Paul Simmons with 565.
Rawson also claimed the junior sports pistol handicap title with 648 and Simmons managed to hold on to finish even with Bond on 573. Simmons also posted a competitive score in the standard pistol winning the handicap with 650.
Orange's Roger Bond was consistent during the event finishing first in one men's air pistol handicap with 637 and third in another on 588.
The women proved just as able as the men, Parkes' Helen Lord winning the women's air pistol with 342.
Lithgow's Dorothy Langlands finished first in the handicap for that event with 392 followed by Lord on 385 and Orange's Helen Johnson with 380.
