From where itall Started
I wanted to share the journey, I have embarked upon in the world of competitive shooting sports. From a young age, I’ve been captivated by the thrill of hunting and shooting. This deep-rooted passion was kindled by my father, whose own fervor for the hunt became an unwavering source of inspiration for me. Growing up in a family of outdoors enthusiasts, I was exposed to the world of sports, hunting Firearms at a relatively young age. While initially, it was just a hobby, over time, I began to take shooting more seriously and started to participate in local competitions.
It all began with the competitions at POF Wah Cantt Shooting Club and Gun Club in Islamabad. As I developed an interest in club shooting, I soon realized that I was surpassing the expectations of a beginner. It became evident to me that this was a natural skill and talent within me that had emerged through experience.
Over time, I achieved remarkable success in skeet, trap, and pistol shooting, securing multiple club matches. However, a pivotal moment arrived in 2007 when I emerged victorious in the individual matches of the 300-meter iron sight and 300-meter telescopic sight at PARA (Pakistan Army Rifle Association). This accomplishment served as a significant source of motivation, propelling me to take my passion seriously. The thrill of the chase, the precision of the shots, and the challenge of hitting the target; all came together in a way that ignited a passion within me. I began to train harder, to learn more about the mechanics of shooting, and to hone my skills.
Now, years later, I am a competitive F-class sports shooter, having competed and placed in National and International competitions across the world. Shooting is not just a sport for me, it’s a way of life. The feeling of the rifle in my hands, the focus required to take the perfect shot, and the sense of accomplishment when placing a bullet in V bull, are all part of the experience that keeps me coming back for more.
