    So basically no chance.
    There are only TWO times when you can have too much ammo... When you are on fire or when you are drowning...

    10-meters AIR RIFLE/PISTOL EVENTS.

    Pakistan & Olympic Shooting sports

    WAPDA SPorts Board and its member companies employ 1800 sports persons in 37 sports and are in top positions in national and International competitions. Two of the wild card Olympic entries are WAPDA sports persons.

    In addition WAPDA already picks up , on a Rs5000 per month stipend, young boys & girls who are given access to WAPDA's sports facilities and coaches. Please visit WAPDA website www.wapda.gov.pk for details of the WAPDA Athletics Colts, WEFS, FFF and T-12 initiatives.

    In my capacity as President of WAPDA Sports Board, I have been trying to raise a team of boys and girls (13 years to 16 year olds) from all over Pakistan who can, after a proper screening for basic qualities, hand and eye coordination, temperament etc. by professionals, be trained and groomed specifically for Olympic sports in Shooting & Archery.

    WAPDA intends to build a basic range for Olympic shooting and Archery sports in Lahore. Initial focus is on Air rifles/pistol and Archery. We already have a Shooting team with very good shooters.
    However to train and raise players in a new field is a completely different ball game and it is easier said than done.

    I have visited good shooting ranges in Pakistan and abroad. Its not very difficult to create such a facility in Pakistan but near impossible to maintain it and run it professionally with safety standards as in the developed world because of the particular mindset we all have.

    I am open to suggestions.

    Communist until you get rich; Feminist until you get married; Atheist until the airplane starts falling.

    AoA bro GWH,

    Great initiative, you need to have a passion and craze for certain goals and everything
    gets easy. But before an individual gets on his way to implement something positive for
    the organization his efforts are either hampered through POLITICS or chocking of funds.


    Now, the OLYMPIC GAMES are only 10-days away(Opening on 5th-August-2016).Pakistan
    has only been able to send(7-Athletes) and 11-officials and the most ridiculous part is, that all
    of them are going to RIO(BRAZIL) on WILD CARD entry system, which means they haven't
    met the requirement of qualifications for their respective sport since, 2012 London Olympics.

    In shooting a male shooter in 25-mtrs RAPID FIRE and a Female in 10-mtrs Air Rifle have been
    given WILD CARD entries whereas SKEET,TRAP and DOUBLE TRAP have been completely WIPED OUT.

    If we read out the (CONSTITUTION AND MISSION OF NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION)
    it clearly states that, it was created for the development of SHOOTING SPORTS in the country.
    All the EXPERTS are still holding their PORTFOLIOS and getting PERKS without being answerable
    to anyone, despite being humiliated at WORLD ARENA where the WHOLE WORLD will compare
    the size of our contingent with the INDIAN,IRANIAN,BANGLADESHI and CHINESE contingents.

    Running any Shooting or Archery club needs a strong passion and trainings in the respective fields
    Just ask the president of PAKISTAN ARCHERY FEDERATION to tell us the explanation of following
    terms,

    1. Archer's Paradox
    2. How to achieve center shot through "FINE TUNNING OF THE RECURVE BOW".
    3. Which Muscles of an Archer are used to become a successful ARCHER.


    He might answer you after few hours by searching on the net, but OFF hand he would
    know nothing.
