P&P INSURANCE BROKERS’ ANNUAL GSSF CHRISTMAS PRACTICAL PISTOL MATCH SET FOR THIS WEEKEND

   

Local practical shooters will for the second year be given an opportunity to participate in the Annual Christmas Practical Pistol Match which has been exclusively sponsored by P&P Insurance Brokers and Consultants Limited and hosted by the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation. This much anticipated competition will be held at the GDF’s Timehri Ranges this weekend.

For the second consecutive year, the match will usher in the festive Christmas season and hopefully brings lots of cheer to the members and local pistol aces as they compete in the final competition for the GSSF’s calendar year. Competitors will be separated into two divisions based on their firearm setup: Production Division (for out of the factory firearms) and Limited Division (where some add-ons and higher end aftermarket parts are allowed.)

TRINITY RESOURCES MULTI-GUN PRACTICAL SHOOTING MATCH a SUCCESS

The Inaugural Trinity Resources sponsored Multi-Gun Practical Shooting Match proved to be challenging and fun for local practical shooters competing under the USPSA Practical Shooting Handgun Rules at the G.D.F.’s Yarrowkabra Range. Every G.S.S.F. Practical Shooting Match is made up of stages that seek to measure a shooter’s ability in all three elements of the sport and are coordinated under strict safety guidelines marshaled by experienced Range Officials. The Match held last Saturday 1st October, 2016, was no different as shooters competed in 5 stages, considering technical aspects and shooting positions to take based solely on target presentation. Targets a mere few yards away to some 25 yards away, each stage’s target array tested various different skills for the shooters of different levels.

QUEENSWAY SECURITY SERVICE / GSSF PRACTICAL SHOOTING MATCH A ‘BLAST’

 Sport shooting has an ‘extreme’ sport and it is called practical shooting. Competitors have to move, lean, shoot, negotiate obstacles, run, shoot, reload, crouch, problem solve, shoot some more as they safely drive their bodies and guns through each of the stages as fast as their skills will allow. Every G.S.S.F. Practical Shooting Match is made up of stages that seek to measure a shooter’s ability in all three elements of the sport and are coordinated under strict safety guidelines marshaled by experienced Range Officials. These matches in Guyana are held outdoors, in all weather, further testing competitor skills. Saturday 30th July, 2016 was no different as the Foundation members started out in horrific heat in brilliant sunshine, blue skies, facing 4 stages ahead of them to complete the scheduled match. Shooting was done under the USPSA Practical Shooting Handgun Rules at the G.D.F.’s Yarrowkabra Range.
