What is Pistol Shooting?
Hetul Budhiraja: “Shooting is the act or process of discharging projectiles from a ranged weapon such as guns, bows or crossbows and slingshots. Even the discharging/launching of artillery, darts, grenades, rockets and guided missiles can be called shooting. When using a firearm, the act of shooting is often called firing. Shooting can take place in a shooting range or in the field, in shooting sports, hunting or in combat. A person who is involved in the shooting activity is a shooter. Shooting sports is a collective group of competitive and recreational sporting activities involving proficiency tests of accuracy, precision and speed in using various types of ranged weapons.”
How I got into Pistol Shooting?
Hetul Budhiraja: “After doing my schooling from Chiranjiv Bharti School Gurugram, I did my B Tech in Information Technology from Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University College of Engineering, Pune. In 2012 while doing y graduation I started practicing 10 Meter pistol shooting at Maharashtra Shooting Edge which was my mother’s dream as she was influenced by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore. I participated in various state level competitions. After completing my degree, I got placement at IBM, Bangalore but my instinct did not allow me to do a sitting job and later I joined Harley Davidson in Sales & Marketing Division, as automobiles was also one of my interests along with Pistol Shooting.”
