A presentation on CISM Shooting & on our pistol and rifle team by the team captain;
A technical explanation in pistol and rifle shooting by the coaches;
And of course, an initiation in sport shooting itself;
A total of 8 candidates presented themselves: 3 for pistol and 5 for rifle.
On Thursday, every candidate was to pass a test: a "Sport Pistol Match" for the pistol shooters, and a "3 Positions 50m Match" for the rifle shooters. The minimum for joining the team is 500/600 Pts. Just one candidate succeeded scoring more than 500 Pts. Cpl Jossart Oliver (RChA), a pistol shooter, totalized 520 Pts, 260 Pts in precision and 260 Pts in rapid fire.
