Speed, power and accuracy: Three elements of the practical shooting were well-balanced last Saturday 24th January, 2015 at the GDF’s Timehri Ranges when the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation safely hosted the first competition for 2015 – a Practical Pistol Match sponsored by Woodpecker Products. The company generously donated to the G.S.S.F. several high quality Trophies for the competition, which was open to all experienced practical pistol competitors in Guyana.
Following the Latest Edition of Practical Shooting Handgun Rules, the shooters enjoyed an afternoon in the blazing sunshine while safely engaging targets in three dynamic stages in the Standard Division. These stages required the competitor to shoot as accurately as possible at multiple targets that were setup in various scenarios, while moving, and striving to do so in a shorter time than the other competitors. Points were deducted for any misses and any hits on specific penalty targets.
On Tuesday 20th January, 2015, Owner and Managing Director of Woodpecker Products located at Lot 40, Fourth Street, Alberttown, Mrs. Luana Ferandes, generously donated to the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation several Trophies for their upcoming Practical Pistol Competition to be held on the 24th January, 2015 at the G.D.F. Timehri Ranges.
At a simple hand-over ceremony yesterday afternoon, Mrs. Luana Fernandes who is well known for her contributions to the development of sport in Guyana, presented the Trophies to President of the Foundation, Ms. Vidushi Persaud who accepted the prizes on behalf of the G.S.S.F. and thanked Mrs. Fernandes for the support Woodpecker Products has given to local sport shooting.
