    Vadodara contingent consist members of STRA get 40 % of total medals tally in 39th Gujarat state championship

    Shooters of the Savli Taluka Rifle Association put up a spectacular performance at the 39th Gujarat State Shotgun Shooting Championship which recently concluded at Dasada, Surendranagar. Their youngest male shooter, Master Aryan Singh (aged 14 years) setting a New State Record in “NR Junior Men Double Trap” event.

    Shotgun shooting is conducted on 3 internationally recognized formats, 2 of which are Olympic events. In single trap, round orange clay targets fly at speeds of approximately 110 kmph away from the shooter at angles and degrees unknown to him, where he has approximately half a second to identify and shoot it down with two cartridges.

    In double trap, two targets fly out in somewhat known angles but one can use only one cartridge per target, hence making it an interesting and challenging sport. In the game of skeet, one or two targets fly across and/or away from the shooter in known angles but the shooter needs to keep changing his degree of approach to the target, thereby making it a very visually appealing, intriguing and visually pleasing sport.

    Shotgun shooting develop qualities like focus, concentration, calmness, discipline, camaraderie apart from imbibing a spirit of sportsmanship and national pride. Travelling across the country to partake in various competitions also leads to interaction with a wide plethora of people of different walks of life and therefore also leads to a greater appreciation of different cultures.

    The Vadodara Contingent, consisting of members of the STRA, garnered approximately 40% of the total medal tally of the entire state apart from its youngest male shooter, Master Aryan Singh (aged 14 years) setting a New State Record in “NR Junior Men Double Trap” event.
