The Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation, in its quest to promote the various disciplines and art of sport shooting, on Saturday 17th October, 2015 marked another momentous day when the first clay was launched in a regulated manner at the GDF Range at Yarrowkabra. GSSF Member and renowned shotgun enthusiast, Mr. Gerard Mekdeci, was invited to fire the first shot at a Clay target to mark this ceremonious occasion. He held true to the task, hitting the biodegradable clay target with his first shot causing it to shatter in several pieces thus launching the sport of Trap shooting locally.
The GSSF at the end of 2014 secured affiliation to the Amateur Trapshooting Association. Since then, it formed an internal Trapshooting Committee tasked with pioneering this sporting discipline in Guyana which ultimately resulted in last Saturday’s Official Launch of the sport of ATA Trap.
