A World Class Champion retires from the World stage!

Russell Mark has decided it is time to retire from the international stage of shooting and will have attended his final world championship in Spain. Russell commenced his remarkable shooting career at Sebastopol Gun Club in 1977, and competed at the international level for the first time in 1985.

Russell won a gold medal in Double Trap at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and he won a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. He twice won the World Championship and was twice runner up. In 1991 he became the first Australian to win a Gold Medal at a World Cup. He was the first competitor on earth to win a gold medal at all four of the ISSF’s major competitions.

In 2007 the ISSF named Russell Mark as one of their four greatest shotgun shooters of all time joining Kim Rhode, Susan Nattrass and Luciano Giovanetti.

In 1997 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his services to sport and in 2009 the Australian Clay Target Association inducted him into their Hall of Fame.

Russell will be missed by many shooters around the World, but no doubt will keep in touch with the friends he has made during the decades he has been shooting.

Hopefully Russell will be around the shooting sport for sometime to come with coaching juniors, as he has mentioned in some of his statements of late, and also shooting competition at the local clubs.

The VCTA wishes Russell Mark OAM, the very best in the future
in whatever he takes on.

Warning!!
Members Please Note

Secure your Firearms!

When at a range, firearms not being used MUST be locked in your vehicle.

Police have been checking vehicles at clubs to see that shooters are not leaving guns in unlocked cars.

Random checks will continue to occur more frequently at Gun Clubs, so please be sure to lock your guns away when not in use, and store ammunition correctly.

Police will confiscate firearms that are not secured properly and there is a risk of losing your license as well as being charged.

Is your firearms licence about to expire?

Please check the expiry date as, ultimately, you are responsible for renewing your licence.  Sometimes notices for renewal are not sent. It is recommended that you renew a month before the expiry date so as to avoid going through the mundane tests etc.

If you have overlooked the expiry date you will receive a letter from the Licensing Services Division advising that you will have to dispose of your firearms.
