Introduction : Sanket Shirodkar

Post by shirodkar4 » Fri Apr 17, 2015 3:01 am

Hello IFGians,

This is Sanket Shirodkar from Goa. I have been following this forum since some time now. I was bitten by bug of shooting since my school days in NCC when i first used a .303 Enfield, with .22 barrel liners it was fun and I remember having shot a 4.5 cm group without much practice. I had no idea we could own an air rifle without license. Whenever i demanded a AR from my parents i was bullied that a license is required to purchase the same. During a recent meeting with one of our customers who owns a handgun i got curious and i stumbled across this wonderful forum. All the myths were vanquished and I finally bought an AR. Its a Precihole NX100 Scorpious I purchased on 24th Jan this year. I am finally able to pursue my hobby. But I have found out that shooting and any one with a gun is considered an antisocial person in the neighborhood. Gun is synonymous to hunting and people do not understand anything like target shooting here in Goa. I wonder then this perception will change.

Regards,
SS

You know what is in your heart. You also know whether your neighbors can know your heart. Judging people without knowing them is not a good thing!
“You should tell someone what you know. There should be a history, so that men can learn from it."

He smiled. “Men do not learn from history. Each generation believes itself brighter than the last, each believes it can survive the mistakes of the older ones. Each discovers each old thing and they throw up their hands and say ‘See! Look what I have found! Look upon what I know!’ And each believes it is something new."
