Competition Shooting - Clays 

While competition shooting is a strong focus of PMFGA, an avenue for Social shooting exists. A member can participate in a competition without being part of the competition itself, this is known as "Targets Only", or the option to attend practice days is available.

By winning State qualifying shoots you may represent W.A. in the National Championships, and if successful there, you may be selected for the Australian team to participate in the World Championships.

A level of etiquette is expected from all members and visitors. Members and visitors are to be mindful that, while shooting is in progress, courtesy must be extended to the person taking their shot. During competition shoots were the stakes are higher, for example, shooters competing for a place on the state team means that the expectation of etiquette is higher. Shooters should be ready to step up to take their shot within seconds of the person who has just shot stepping off the stand.

All shooters should take turns in scoring and releasing targets.

Competition shooting can be quite demanding, and requires a significant amount of self control, concentration and focus. With large numbers of shooters attending competition shoots, time is of the essence. Shooters are organized in to squads and that squad remains together for the duration of the shoot. Each member of the squad takes a turn at being first shot. On the first round the first shooter listed on the squad sheet shoots first, with the others taking their turn as listed. On the second round the second person listed goes first and so on. The last shooter normally records scores as called by the appointed referee who controls the release of the targets.

Shooters need to be organized and be ready to take their turn within seconds of the shooter in front of them stepping off the stand. When in the stand that shooter has 20 seconds to prepare for the shot and call pull. Shooters waiting should study the departure point, sequence and flight of the targets to avoid loss of time.

Social Shooting (Shotgun):

With low membership fees & the price of the targets kept to a minimum, simulated field shooting is now well within the range of all shooters. Perth Branch has shooting & social weekends & these generally proof to be a great time for shooter & family alike.

Rifle Shooting:

We have access to a rifle range at the Pinjar Wanneroo Complex every second Sunday, and also every Thursday. It caters for all classes of rifle shooting (practice & competition) & shoots will be held on a regular basis.

Education of New Shooters:

Bring your friends & family & introduce them to the good times to be experienced in shooting. These times are ideal for keeping your eye in, or educating your wife or child in the safe handling of firearms, as well as teaching them the art of shooting. Training facilities are available to new or young shooters.
