SHOOTING IN INDIA

Though Shooting in India has come of age & is being practiced in all states of India, but lot more needs to be done. There is a considerable dropout rate at Junior Levels due to costs involved. If we properly nurture the young shooting talent that we have in our country, many more laurels can be earned for our nation.

The success of Abhinav Bindra, Gagan Narang, Rajawardhan Singh Rathore & Jitu Rai has created a new awareness towards shooting at junior level.

Though NRAI is doing its worth for the sport, lot more can be done with Corporate & Public support.

A keen follower & supporter finds its disheartening, when promising shooters think of discontinuing the sport for the lack of state owned facilities.

Some examples are Manilal Gohil used his daughter’s wedding fund to buy her a new quality rifle or Yash Padloskar’s father building a private shooting range for his son.

The key areas which need to be addressed are :

1) SETTING UP OF MORE SHOOTING RANGES ALL OVER INDIA AND MAKE ACCESSIBLE,
ESPECIALLY TO THE JUNIORS AND AT SCHOOL LEVELS.
2) IDENTIFYING THE TALENT AND MAKING THE SPORT MORE POULAR.
3) PROVIDE QUALITY COACHING AND GUADANCE TO THE ASPIRING JUNIOR SHOOTERS.
4) MAKE THE HIGH QUALITY EQUPMENT EASILY AVAILABLE AND ASSIST IN CHOOSING THE
RIGHT EQUIPMENT.
5) MONITORING AND FOLLOW UP ALSO NEEDS TO ARDENTLY MAINTAINED.
