Richards wins GNRA .22 Precision Pistol competition
Gordon Richards emerged as the winner of the Guyana National Rifle Association (GNRA) Smallbore Section .22 Precision Pistol competition last weekend at the Tactical Service Unit (TSU) Range, Eve Leary.
The competition, which saw shooters facing off at the 5m, 7m, 10m, 15m and 20m distances, ended with Richards tallying 87 points to win ahead of Surujballi Persaud (78 points), Raval Seojattan (76 points), Murtland Smith (64 points) and Compton Sarabo (56 points).
All shooters were required to shoot 10-rounds with their strong hand unsupported from the 5m, 7m and 10m distances after which only the top 10 advanced to 15m range where they shot 10-rounds with their strong hand supported.
Only the best would advance from this stage and it was the top five where they shot from the 20m mark with 10 available rounds with their strong hand supported. Richards emerged as the best.
