he 1st Austrian and open international Field Target Championship took place in Field Target Center Kufstein, Tyrol on May 24th.

Around 30 shooters in classes 1 and 2 (PCP and Springer) accepted the invitation and found perfect conditions with bright sunshine an the "Kinbergklamm". We are very pleased about the fact that about 70% of the present participants shoot with STEYR air rifles.

Also some employees of STEYR SPORT participated in the competiton. We cannot hide our pride about the circumstance that the Austrian Master is Ernst Huber, Chief of technical service of STEYR SPORT. Paul Egger gained the Silver medal, Robert Glombitza from Schützengilde Kufstein gained Bronze. All three shooters on the podium shot - not surprisingly - a STEYR-Field Target rifle.

The international competition was won by Stefan Kawnik (Germany) with 48 hits, just ahead of Adam Benke (Germany), who landed with 47 hits on the 3rd place.

Congratulations to all successfull STEYR-Shooters and the Schützengilde Kufstein to this great event!
