Amidst light scattered showers last Saturday 28th March, 2015, local practical shooters came out and safely balanced the three elements of the practical shooting triangle: Speed, Power and Accuracy at the GDF’s Timehri Ranges when the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation hosted another Practical Pistol competition which was open to all existing practical shooters of Guyana.
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.

Two members of the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation returned on Monday after taking part in the International Practical Shooting ConFoundation Region of Suriname Level II Match held on Sunday October 5, 2014.
The GSSF was once again represented by Mr. Ryan McKinnon and Ms. Vidushi Persaud at a match held at the MTC Ranges, Suriname. The match consisted of 7 stages requiring a minimum of 140 rounds of 9mm or higher calibre. These dynamic stages required competitors to shoot as accurately as possible at multiple targets that were setup in various scenarios and distances: some through window cutouts, around walls, while moving, reloading, others under tables, there were even stages that stipulated shooting with your right hand only and another with your left hand only, all while trying to beat the clock and complete the stage with a better time than your competitor. Points were deducted for misses and any hits on specific penalty targets. Most importantly, all this is to be done safely, while keen specially trained Range Officers were present managing the strict business of safety for all in blazing sunshine and typically high tropical humidity.
