CHENNAI: Tap, tap, tap!’ the sound of metal pellets being fired and tearing through paper targets was relentless. As was the sight of seated shooters putting in their entire focus to pull the trigger and hit the bull’s eye. This was the scene on the third and final day of the Chennai Para Shooting Camp at Chennai Rifle Club, Egmore, which was attended by 28 persons with disabilities (PwDs) across Tamil Nadu. At the event, organised by Sportzcraft Inc and Chennai Rifle Club, PwDs were trained for two days and a competition was underway on the third day.
“They taught us how to grip the gun, how to aim… There is a ‘u’ and an ‘i’ in the crosshairs. You have to focus it so that they join and become a ‘w’. Then you take the shot,” explains 11-year-old V Manoj Kumar excitedly. The participants were taught sighting, alignment, focus, grip and trigger release.
