The Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation Practical Pistol Section brought the curtains down for 2015 on Saturday 5th December, 2015, when they hosted the P&P Insurance Brokers & Consultants Practical Pistol Match at the GDF Timehri Range. The event saw local practical shooters testing their skills in four dynamic stages setup by the GSSF Match Committee competing for prizes in two divisions. The Production Division shooters used out of the factory firearms which were limited to a magazine capacity of 10 rounds only while the Limited or Standard Division shooters where allowed some add-ons to make their guns more race worthy for the sport.
Match Director for the event, Mr. Ryan McKinnon in his opening remarks, welcomed the shooters and encouraged all to follow the strict safety rules set out by the discipline and introduced the range safety officers who would be monitoring the action. McKinnon also noted the attendance of sanctioned and established practical shooters of IPSC Guyana along with the Regional Director Mr. Harold Hopkinson. The stages selected for the competition from the get go appeared to be a rigid test of the ability of the shooters to balance the three elements of practical shooting: Speed, Power and Accuracy. To get things on the way the MD introduced the Range Master for the event, Mr. David Dharry, who was tasked with ensuring all the rules of the sport were followed correctly.
