Most of us have grown up watching movies where action heroes chased villains which almost always involved a gun fight. However, an untrained hand can cause disasters with guns; it’s a lethal weapon and not a toy. At the MES Shooting Range in Sadashiv Peth, Pune, you can learn more about self-defence and practice the art of target shooting at this efficient range. What’s more, you can even get an MRA (Maharashtra Rifle Association) registration here!
MES themselves recognise this shooting range as one of their finest institutions, so you know that your training is in superb hands. The most important thing you need to know before enrolling is that the range is meant to hone your skills and passion in rifle-shooting as a sport. Being a competitive sport, you have to be at the top of your game to make it through.
At this shooting range you can learn the basics in a ten-day Safety course. You can be eligible to compete in all the tournaments arranged by the MRA after the completion of this course.
The MRA has set the rules and guidelines for this course, and once you complete it, you could become a member of the range and continue to enhance your skills further. MES hopes to have more shooters in our state as we can then represent Maharashtra in national- as well as international-level competitions.
As of now, the institution has 22 students since its establishment in 2007. We hope that more and more Punekars partake in this sport so that we can represent our state and ultimately, Pune city, in the shooting sports’ scenario. After all, aren’t we used to glorious success in so many fields? So how about you try this place out?
