It all started on the family farm when I was at a very young age, shooting milk cartons and soft drink cans with a 22 rifle, obviously with some assistance from my Father Wayne Lording and my Pop, Eric Lording. I was probably incapable of holding a rifle at the age I was. Dad has been shooting IPSC since he was a teenager, and decided to get back into it in 2020, taking me along for the ride. I have always shot rifles on the family farm, but I found a love for pistols when dad gave me my first shoot of his CZ shadow 2. He loved this gun, but with a little bit of convincing, I kept on shooting with it, more and more and eventually got to say it was now my gun! I continued to go down to the pistol club in Ararat and shoot with dad at steel targets. I was very excited when they fell. I then decided I wanted to take IPSC further and got my holster qualification.
