These achievements could not have been possible without the supervision of Mr Manish Kumar, Mr Sahil Rana and Mr Ajay Kumar and most importantly the way our students have been taught and guided at every step.
We bring you with certain steps for gun safety which have been kept in mind whilst teaching shooting to the students as we feel Safety First – Gun control isn’t about guns, it’s about control.
- ASSUME EVERY FIREARM IS LOADED-Always respect and treat a firearm as though it is loaded, regardless of what other people tell you about the gun-they could be wrong!
- CONTROL THE MUZZLE DIRECTION AT ALL TIMES- Do not point a firearm at something that you do not intend to shoot. Only point a gun at your intended target.
- TRIGGER FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER AND OUT OF TRIGGER GUARD- Keep your trigger finger off the trigger and out off the trigger guard until your sights are on the target and you have made the decision to shoot.
- SEE THAT THE AREA AND THE TARGET IS SAFE- Make sure the target and the surrounding area is safe to shoot at before firing. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.
We are very proud that all our students have once again kept our marque of Top School in Panchkula because of the collective effort of the students as well as teachers. ‘The aim of ‘Mark-10’ the shooting academy of Hallmark is to identify, nurture and elevate the budding shooters using the best possible resources and latest equipment. As the motive behind building dexterity for shooting sports is to steer the students with a lot of careful and meticulous planning, Mark-10 strives to asseverate a strong and dynamic academic core in the field of shooting through practical knowledge and with proper physical, mental and psychological guidance. We feel that it is very much important and integral to make our students practice shooting because this will not just help them improve their concentration and focus but will also make them more disciplined and few might even chose this as their career and represent our country on Global Platforms.
