Bhubaneswar: To popularise the gun sports in the state, the Odisha Rifle Association is organising the four-day-long shooting training summer camp here at Utkal Karate School shooting range, which started from June 21.
Altogether 24 participants are practicing 10 meter air rifle and pistol events.
The shooting sports needs lot of physical and mental strength, we are educating the players about the basic and finer aspect of these royal sports, said Hari Prasad Patnaik.
Though many a players were interested for the camp, but we are restricted the numbers because the sport looks easy but the amount of concentration is required to hit the target is more important.
Apart from the competition rules, the new learners are learning the handling of gun, alignment, aim, trigger and target.
On the concluding day on Sunday, we would organise a competition among the campers and the participation certificate would be distributed to all, Patnaik added.
