MEMBERS of the Australian Army Cadets Gatton Unit 139ACU have come away from the Australian Shooting Games Junior Shoot with 14 medals.

The Junior Shoot has been running for more than 10 years, and this is the cadets' second year of competing.

Eleven members of the unit travelled to the SSAA Brisbane Range in Belmont on July 1 and 2, bringing home three gold medals, four silver medals and seven bronze medals - a huge success compared with just one medal last year.

The shoots were conducted using .22 calibre rifles in the five disciplines of Bench Rest, Service Rifle, Silhouette, Field Rifle and Air Rifle.

Shooting clubs from across Queensland took part in the event with 51 competitors in total.

Nathan Bailey came in third overall in the 15-18 year age group while Lachlan Reid came in second overall in the 11-14 year age group.

The final placing came down to the wire with shoot-outs deciding four of the individual categories of 15-18 years Field Rifle, 11-14 years' Service Rifle, Bench Rest and Silhouette.

The Australian Shooting Games Junior Shoot is held in the first week of the school holidays each year.
