Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak on Sunday tried his hands on various guns manufactured for the purpose of training shooters in the field of sports. India has been house some of the best performing marksmen in India, but due to the scarcity of resources in the country, many of them like Abhinav Bindra had to take training at international destinations.

Even though there were players who practised in Indian shooting ranges, but then the guns and palettes had to be imported from other nations including Germany, Switzerland, France and Turkey. The pellets for these guns are completely manufactured in the above-mentioned nations as no company in the country is making them, informed Rajesh Bhatia one of the directors of Capital Airgun Manufacturers Pvt Ltd. Going by the Make in India resolution and the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Capital Airgun Manufacturers Pvt Limited on Sunday launched its range of Camstar Sports brand of products which included air rifles and pistols such as Nitro, PCP, CO2 and Spring Action. Four types of airgun pellets have also been introduced by the company.

There is no age restriction when it comes to participating in shooting events, said Deputy CM Brajesh Pathak, while addressing the event as the Chief Guest, therefore rifle sports have a lot of scope for the passionate participants. Talking about the glorious past of the Indian civilisation, he said that India was one of the few nations of old times, that had perfected the devising of the Shabd Bhedi Baan (the arrow that goes after sound) and finds its mention in Ramayana when King Dashrath used it on Shravan Kumar. Contrastingly, the nation has backtracked when it comes to the present facilities of the sport and therefore it is a laudable step on the part of Capital Airgun Manufacturers Pvt Limited, to launch the air rifles in India, he said.
The Deputy CM also congratulated the directors of Capital Airgun Manufacturers Private Limited, for taking the initiative for manufacturing products required for the training of the future marksmen of India.He also mentioned an incident in Mahabharata, where the Pandavas going by their intuition used to train blindfolded shooting. The Directors, Sial Family (Ricky Sial and Joginder Sial) and Bhatia Family (Rajesh Bhatia) also shared their vision to support Indian shooters with worldclass training equipment and infrastructure.
