The first ever International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) / Guyana National Rifle Association (GNRA) Level 1, IPSC Range Officers (RO) Seminar commenced Friday afternoon and concluded yesterday at the Regency Suites, Hadfield Street, Georgetown.
The seminar is being facilitated by Mr. Harold ‘Topgun’ Hopkinson, Regional Director for the International Practical Shooting Federation, IPSC.
According to Hopkinson who participated in a similar seminar in Jamaica earlier this month, on the successful completion of this course, participants will be certified Level 1 Range Officers of the International Practical Shooting Confederation.
This will make them eligible to be part of the world wide pool of Range Officers. After going through training with a seasoned Range Officer, the successful participants will be competent to officiate at IPSC sanctioned matches, which would then enable them to gain points towards the Range Master and ultimately, Chief Range Officer’s status.
The seminar also touched on the 2015 Handgun Rules with a view of aiding in the members developing a comprehensive understanding of the IPSC principles.
Certificates were awarded to successful participants.
Meanwhile, today, there will be a Secure Innovation and Concepts Inc. Level 1 IPSC Sanctioned Shoot at the Timehri Ranges. This will be the second IPSC Level 1 Shoot at Timehri and will see prizes being awarded as follows: Open – 1st and 2nd for full blown race guns; Standard 1st – 5th Modified production guns without electronic sights; non modified out of the box Production 1st – 5th, Junior Production 1st – 5th.
