It was during the 4th National Games in 1997, that Late Shri. Nagaraj Rao Jagdale established the existing K.S.R.A. ranges at Sri. J N Radhakrishna Memorial Shooting Complex, which is part of the Sports Authority of India campus, on Mysore Road, Bangalore. A very talented student of CMR NPS, Abishek Sekhar of class 8 D, participated in the aforesaid competition and won a lot of awards and medals:
Karnataka State Rifle Association recently held the Karnataka State 10 meters Open Right Air Rifle. In the very early days, way back in 1960, a handful of shooting enthusiasts came together to jointly work towards the pursuit of their hobby. Initially, shooters would collect guns deposited at the local police station, and practice at CRA grounds, Bangalore. The competition guns or ammunition were outdated and scarce. The shooters had to face many challenges in terms of leasing a proper area for a shooting range; procurement of competition guns; supply of ammunition, and many more.
We at CMR NPS are very proud of Abishek Sekhar. We wish him all the best for all his future endeavors.
