    MUHAMMAD ALI JINNAH FIELD SPORTS CLUB – BAHAWALPUR


    2nd Muhammad Ali Jinnah Shooting Championship – 2019 is being conducted from 3 -18 December at Bahawalpur. This championship will not only be the biggest firing championship in Pakistan but will also be the first in line to conduct matches at Extreme Long Ranges in Pakistan. The championship aims at conducting twenty-seven matches in varying categories with ranges from 25 meters to 1500 meters. Open to both national and international shooters, this Championship will not only improve the shooting standards, promote shooting sports amongst the youth but will also provide opportunities for identifying vibrant talent in the field. With a drive to move in the same direction in Pakistan, there was a dire need for the development of a joint shooting platform.

    For this purpose, foundation of Muhammad Ali Jinnah Field Sports Club was laid at Bahawalpur, which will accommodate all. This club is unique as it offers ranges varying from 25 meters to 1500 meters for firing of wide range of weapons to include air rifles, pistols, small bore rifles, hunting rifles, target rifles and sniper rifles. Besides other facilities, the club also provides video target display at firing points for each shooter firing at long and extremely long ranges. A group of twenty firers can fire at a time and each firing point is provided with bench rest, trench and platform for prone position. Apart from shooting the club will also host adventure activities such as hunting, treasure hunt, etc. This club has the aim and potential to not only improve the shooting standards, promote shooting culture but also attract winter tourism in Cholistan.

    If i recall correctly, the 50 BMG has never been shot in Pakistan during open competitions. Judging from the advertisement, it looks like something big is going on there.

    Let's gather @Zarvan and go get that trophy! :lol:

    Range Master is really heavy. I posed with both Beret and also Range Master during my visit to IDEAS and trust. RangeMaster was way too heavy

    Yes M-82 was lighter than RangeMaster. RangeMaster was only metal that is why it was so heavy

    Key difference is that the RM to the best of my understanding is a classic bolt action rifle as opposed to M-82 which is a Semi auto action?
