President: James Buckle
James is a staunch supporter of logical and fact-driven firearm laws. He was the founder of Firearm Owners United, and spends most of his days and nights working towards true common-sense firearm laws. He strongly believes in licensing the individual, not the object, and supports all manner and forms of legal firearm ownership, from collecting and airsoft, to semi-automatics for sporting and firearms for the defence of ones home. He lives in Melbourne, enjoys long walks on the range, riding his motorbike, and candlelit dinners outside his favourite gun stores.
Vice-President/Secretary/All-round all-star : Michael Wild
Michael Wild started competitive shooting at the age of 15. Since then he has placed at a state level for his grade on several occasions in his chosen disciplines. Michael is a keen small game hunter and rifle shooter. He is also a diehard Single Action shooter after discovering the discipline in 2015. Michael would like to see the introduction of Mounted Single Action in Australia believing it will do wonders for both Western Equestrian Events and competitive shooting. He would also like to see Three Gun introduced stating it will bring out the physically demanding side of the sport, proving to the anti’s it’s just not stand and shoot. Michael would like to see FOU lead the way in shining a positive light on the sport while fighting for shooters rights and common sense gun laws. He states that as Vice President, he is determined to make it happen.
