Thanks Tx

the devil lays in the small details as they say.

the sandbag is useful to throw when you miss the shoot.

if you say it can not be done, then you are right, for you, it can not be done.

Tenx,
I think Neelesh was a good guy to deal wtih. Yes he is a difficult to track down. His number and email address is on the website. I normally call him and show up at his office. I bump into him quite a few times at MRA range. I bought a jacket sling and glove from him. He delivered the glove and sling the same day and took 10 days for the jacket. I bought an indian jacket, it cost me about 4-5K.

Most of the guys at MRA buy jackets and other gear from him. He has recently introduced a new jacket that costs something like 25K. the earlier version jacket used to cost about 7-8K. Havent seen the jacket though.

It would be better to call his office. they will be able to help you . his office number is (022)24932040.

regards,
Parag

There is even a minimum angle for the left had supported the gun, to be held with respect to the ground (for a right handed shooter).


30 degrees.

C'mon now, what 'competition' would a sandbag encourage.


A lot more challenging than being trussed up like a turkey in a clown's suit.

I don't know need a jacket to look like a clown. :mrgreen:

Coming back to shooting off a bag, try it sometime and you will find it's not the cakewalk you think it is.

I'mnot arguing if its a cakewalk or now...The context is about competition shooting and what would be required to make shooting a career in the Indian Shooting context... and sand bags are nowhere near permissible, as far as I know. If you think otherwise, maybe I ought to bowout against your superior intelligence :mrgreen:

What is Renowned Shot?
I mean if somone becomes renowned shot in Air Pistol competition, is he eligeble to import any other pistol which comes under sports catagory( center fire, Rapid Fire etc) in case he is having an arms license?

Can't thank you enough for taking the effort to show the real scenario in our (mera) BHARAT (mahan) :cry: It's quite amazing, even after all these hurdles we produce so many world class sportspersons :!:

Nothing amazing really....Shooting is an individual sport....Once a target shooter sets his sights on a goal, nothing and nobody can stop him.

As an example of overcoming adversity, Karoly Takacs has few peers. He was part of Hungary’s world champion pistol-shooting team in 1938, when an army grenade exploded, crippling his right hand. Ten years later, having taught himself to shoot with his left, he won two gold medals in the rapid-fire class.
