Cowra's Matt Seears has taken out the the 2019 Metallic Silhouette Small Bore and Field Pistol National Championships which were held in Toogoolawah, Queensland in early March. 

Seears' national success follows on from his World Title win in July last year. 

Seears said, despite the tough conditions, it was great to come away with the win. 

"It was a good weekend, the range was fairly bright and we were shooting uphill. It was a pretty big competition," he said. 

Despite having qualified for the next World Championships, Seears says he is taking a break from the sport. 

"It's an 18 month commitment… I will probably take two to three years off," he said.

"I will probably just shoot at Nationals and club shoots."
