KIRKCUDBRIGHT Gun Club’s annual shoot was held in the evening of Friday, June 1, with a turnout of 22 members who enjoyed ideal conditions for the event.

High gun was Alan Carson, of Gelston, on 75/75, closely followed by runner-up Stuart Nichol, of Gatehouse, on 74 after a shoot-off with Peter Allison and Davey McCulloch. The veterans trophy was won by J D Brown, of Newton Stewar, on 68 and top junior was Scott Carson, of Drummockloch, on 70.
