Colin Johnston

Colin began target rifle shooting at Belfast Royal Academy in 1978 and his first international team experience followed in 1980 with Ireland in the National and Mackinnon Matches and then with the Athelings in 1981. He has captained his school, University of St Andrews, Territorial Army and NRA teams and is a regular member of the Ulster, Ireland National and Ireland Mackinnon teams.

CJ (as he is widely known) has toured Canada, New Zealand, Germany and the Channel Islands and this is his second tour with a GB team. Team shooting is CJ’s favourite but as an individual he has managed to accumulate a bag of Queen's and St George's Final badges and the odd pot or two over the years.

When not on the range CJ is kept busy as Group Chief Risk Officer for a FTSE 100 Financial Services Firm and occasionally helping his wife Caroline run around after their three young sons, Tom, Henry and Freddie who are already Bisley regulars. Sometimes he even finds time for game shooting and stalking.
