CWG 2010 Full Bore Shooting

PostAuthor: shutzen » Wed Oct 20, 2010 8:39 pm

Gentlemen, I got the opportunity to serve as a National technical Officer at the recently concluded Commonwealth Games New Delhi 2010 . I was a Asst. Range Officer
at the Kadarpur Full bore range for the 1000 yard championship event. The range is newly constructed state of the art with all modern amenities. The unique feature
about it is that the electronic target frames are mooved from 300 through 500 -600-900 and finally to 1000 yard through the course of the match and the firing point
remains static. I had a blast for 10 days during the event working from 7 A.M. to nearly 7.30 P.M. everyday along with a huge team of International Technical Officials
and one of our paramiltary police the "CRPF" on whose campus the range is construced. I am sharing some pics of the venue and event. Its a bit of a bandwidth hog ;) feel
free to field any questions about the event.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

So, did you try out the range??

And what are the conditions for entry for aspirants who want to get into big bore shooting?? I mean it's inside the CRPF setup, after all.

Dear Shutzen,

Thanks for sharing the pictures... feels very inviting; and congratulations for being an Official for the CWG...

Any news of whether guys like us can use the range with their .30-06 rifles... and if so, the damages !
A gun by your side is better than police in the neighbourhood.

People who value privileges above principles, soon lose both.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore...
And who always will....

HI! well we did shoot off a few rounds at 300yds to "calibrate" the targets but they were off sandbags ;) . As far as acess to normal civilians is concerned I dont think any of the Indian armed/paramiltary forces will allow easy acess willingly despite the fact that sports min. spent over 24cr. of public money there.

HI! Olly nothing is clear right now. In december the CRPF is hosting all India Police shooting meet at this range. No new yet about the Big Bore Nationals yet. I dont think these guys will allow civilian shooters to shoot at the range unless one has some jugad with the top brass...

HI! obviously the dude did not know what he was talking about :shock: .223 cal. is not allowed in this event. In fact this restricted to only 7.62/.308 with 155 gr HPBT cartridges. As far as IOF products being used in this event - forget it here the guyz get 2 sighters and majority of them convert the sighters in to scoring shots -counted in the match! IOF HAr har....
