Denis Tobler RIP

It is with great sadness I report that Denis Tobler HOF #18 passed away peacefully on 3rd January 2021.

Know the shooting fraternity extend their sincere condolences to Jean, Robert, Denise and their families.

The family requests that their privacy be respected at this time

Rest in peace old friend

Sad News

Denis was a real character and barrel making pioneer.

I found some pics of Denis in Finland at WBC2 in 1993, winning National Experimental at Silverdale in 1997, and with one of his vintage motorcycles.

It is indeed a sad day when

It is indeed a sad day when one of the giants of the sport of benchrest passes on to a better place.
Those that knew him would remember Denis as the quiet bloke from NSW who started making barrels for both benchrest and other shooting sports "way back when".
Always a tough competitor, especially in the experimental class, Denis achieved the highest honor of membership to the Australian Hall of Fame for benchrest.
The late Alan Peake and I visited Denis after a Silverdale shoot, and he showed us the processes involved in making stainless match barrel. No secrets, no black magic, just a genuine enthusiasm and pride in workmanship.
Sincere condolences to the family - rest easy old mate.

Dennis Tobler RIP

So sorry to hear of Dennis's passing. Have a lot good memories right from the time he started benchrest. Dennis made shooting a lot more enjoyable with his presence. Condolences to his family.
