Annie & Stuart have come to know many people involved in all things to do with rifle shooting over the years. They have nearly 60 years combined experience in Benchrest Shooting and have been fortunate to have a lot of success in all its forms in Australia and Internationally. Also having experience in training and sales they have developed a sense of what is good, what works and how it should be assembled. Listed here are some people we work closely with because we believe they have similar values and understand precisely what is required to deliver quality accurate products. Therefore we can recommend them. Most of the people who run these businesses are very involved in benchrest competition shooting in its various forms so are up to date which what is needed and what is expected.
