    crazy targets. A civilian feels himself like a SLAVE there, because they have TWO men operation team.

    If any VIP arrives there and those two are busy bringing (TEA & SANDWICHES) for him, who will attend a civilian
    member waiting to FIRE his handgun or Rifle on another layout. YOU SIMPLY CAN'T FIRE A SINGLE SHOT UNLESS
    YOUR (RANGEMASTER) IS NOT WITH YOU.

    Did this really happen or just a humourus assumption?
    Well the Army has taken the very nice step of providing us all with a facility at almost free rates. The Navy Club at Karsaz and the Gun Club at Islamabad charge more. The member ship alone comes for over Rs 700,000/- at the Isbd Gun Club; and a shot at skeet is a flat Rs 100/- two skeets for Rs 80 and and if you are buying cartridges it is another Rs 100/ for two cartridges.
    The facilities are both International level and the shooters are also of the same level.
    The Lahore club has just been started and it is at its embryonic stage, they are encouraging civilians to join after necessary formalities. The charges are economical comparitively.
    I have shot and trained all over the world, in no country or club a shooter is allowed to shoot without the Range Master or proper arrangements.
    I have been training some army snipers there a few years back; I went there recently again to join the facility and found fair arrangements in progress.

    AoA Skeeter Sahib,

    Yes, it did happen to me.First of all, I am quiet familiar with those SPIETH Trap
    machines ever since Col Talat and Shahid Majeed lost their interest in maintenance of RANGE at its
    previous location.

    I wasn't in the country for good seven years and last year I came to know about its new location within
    Mehfoozpura Garrison.At that time they were operating both TRAPS from a SINGLE CONTROL SWITCH
    installed in the one of the houses and (RELEASE CABLE + HAND DEVICE) were totally absent.

    So one JAWAN used to sit inside the house and wait for the LOUDER call of the shooter, if not he would
    confirm it verbally with his co-worker standing behind the shooter. Speed of both birds wasn't identical
    and they had no (HOOP POLE) for adjustment of vertical and horizontal angles of both birds at crossing point
    adjacent to STATION-8.

    Last winter I went there to TEST FIRE a (CZ-SHADOW) and saw Mr Hamayun Akhtar using the clay range
    One Major Sahib and 3-4 Jawans were there to serve the VIP.

    During Tea break, I asked the concerned JAWAN about possibility of firing 10-15 shots on an adjacent pistol
    range without disturbing the VIP, he went to Major sahib and came with a big SORRY.

    I laughed and asked him DO YOU UNDERSTAND (HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE TO FIRE A SINGLE MAGAZINE
    of a PISTOL?. He got my point and said that it was his senior's decision.

    I see, so this was the background.
    The old Skeet Club which was next to the Country Club was started by Aftab Ahmad Khan and myself in 1987 when we were using hand operated machines the first National Games Skeet event was staged this way over here.
    Col Talat Umer joined later and developed it but the directions were changed. Mr Tariq Majeed joined during or was it the second match by which time the spieth machines ( removed from the President House, Mr Leghari used to shoot over these ) were given by the NRA to be installed here.
    WE must have met but as I was shooting so many events at the National/International Matches,, the first event I gave up, was Skeet having won a team bronze in SAF Games at Dhaka. I was paying more attention to Pistol and Rifle events.
    Well the attitude you have written about is our National Character and culture and there are officers who do not allow such things but such are few and far apart and get stiffled in the long run.

    Skeeter Sb,

    I do agree with you so far as SAFETY precautions for range users are concerned.Personnel
    assigned for the job can't leave any one on its own. Therefore with limited 2-3 hours of
    range operation time, some one has to wait for his turn.

    Nevertheless, we all do appreciate what ever efforts are being made on Army's part to keep
    the SHOW running. Furthermore it's encouraging to know about the start of "LAHORE CLUB".
    Give us all some over view of it's location, owners or administrators.

    I have no clue about who started it though I do have a vague idea of the going ons. Regret my earlier post. it was Mr Shahid Majeed not Tariq Majeed.
    You know the location ofcourse where you experienced the incident you quoted.
    Mian Sahab I just applied for membership and once I get it will start going there as a member. Earlie I just went for training some personnel.
    Thank you.
