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.
