Karni Singh Shooting range gets the thumbs-up from shooters

The renovated Karni Singh Shooting Range has got the thumbs up from all the shooters taking part in the ongoing Commonwealth Shooting Championship.

All national and international shooters taking part in the event rated the range as ‘world class’.

‘The Championship was a very good preparation for the forthcoming Commonwealth Games. These ranges are at par with any other international range. International shooters who are participating in the championship are equally impressed with the world class facilities here,’ said pistol shooter Samresh Jung, who was adjudged the best shooter in the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Martin Mace, Northern Ireland’s team manager, was impressed with the facilities at the range.

‘I would like to take it home. This is the second time I have come here since 1995. Security can sometimes be used as an excuse by governments of participating countries to not compete. However, I am completely satisfied with the security arrangements in place,’ he said.

Ratna Sharmin Akhter from Bangladesh was satisfied with the facilities and infrastructure at the renovated shooting range.
