Greetings from Pune

Post by full_circle » Tue Aug 31, 2010 6:44 pm

Hi all!

I am a newly minted member, although I have been a "guest" for some time now. We are moving back to Pune, after leading a nomad life for 4 years, and this time for good.

My interests are rifle shooting, golf, the Himalayas, and photography. During my last visit to Pune, I checked out the Poona Golf Course, and although not as impressive as the Oxford Country Club one, it is value for money... I will be taking up membership there. I also tried to look up any shooting clubs, but didnt really get anywhere.

Here's wishing you all a good time, and I hope I can bond with the members here and share and increase my knowledge.

Cheers!

welcome aboard.

whats your handicap?

you can be a good shooter since the basics are the same.

eye on target, head steady, smooth swing. move at the waist and follow through. Use the body like a spring to coil and uncoil, left hand does the movement but effortlessly etc etc.

Sporting is actually called 'golf with a shotgun'.
You want more gun control? Use both hands!
