Asad Wahid wins £1000.00 at the Ian Chenery TOP GUN competition with a Dolphin rifle.
TOP GUN started off in minus 1 weather and no wind.
The shooting was awesome in stage one with Ian Boxall showing his class by shooting a 99/12. Asad Wahid and Steve Rigby both had fantastic 98’s. Stage two began and the wind started to play a part in the scores. Asad was out on his own with another 98/6. He dropped only 4 points in the first two stages ending up with 196 out of a possible 200. I’m sure you will agree that is great great shooting. So Asad was leading going into lunch. The afternoon detail was a bit different for us. Each shooter had 30 mins to shoot unlimited sighters and put down 20 scoring points. A lot of shooters felt the full force of the tricky wind conditions and it showed in the scores. Richie Jones shot an amazing 94/4 in really difficult conditions. This jumped Richie into first place with 10 shooters and one detail to go. All the shooters were finishing 1 by 1 and could not beat his scores. Everyone finished shooting with just Asad left on the firing point. He was leading going into this detail and held it together. For a new shooter he showed great skill and character and shot a fantastic 92/4 giving him a total of 288/19 dropping only 12 points all day. Considering all the details were 2/20 and at 1000 yards it was a great achievement. Asad won the TOP GUN title and bagged the biggest prize fund in F class shooting in the U.K., £1000!
All had a great time and I enjoyed putting this competition together. It will be held every year at this time of year. Julie Bagnall finished in last place ( I hope you don’t mind me saying that )but won a free invitation to next years TOP GUN with entry paid, this will also be carried out every year. So all GB league members, if you have won a stage medal at any time and fancy a shot at the Ian Chenery TOP GUN title you can enter next year. Watch this space. Everyone is now fired up ready for the league to start.
Well done again Asad.
