Pis­tols to blaze at Woodleigh’s Fast & Fu­ri­ous

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT - Ains­ley Wal­ters Gleaner Writer

Kevin ‘Fast­foot’ Che­ung mov­ing through a stage at the re­cent Ja­maica Cup/Eman­ci­pa­tion tour­ney at Woodleigh. WOODLEIGH’S 2016 Fast & Fu­ri­ous Pis­tol Cham­pi­onship will be a blaz­ing affair to­mor­row when the is­land’s top shoot­ers clash in a test of speed and ac­cu­racy at the May Pen, Claren­don, range over 12 stages, shoot­ing more than 200 rounds.

United States-based Les­gar ‘Speedy’ Mur­dock could lead the charge in Open Di­vi­sion along­side Len­nie ‘Ag­gres­sive’ Moul­ton, Kevin ‘Fast­foot’ Che­ung, Bernard Lawrence and res­i­dent shooter, Howie Brown.

Che­ung warmed up by re­cently beat­ing Moul­ton at The Ja­maica Ri­fle As­so­ci­a­tion and is hop­ing that the win­ning trend will con­tinue at Woodleigh, which will fea­ture open tar­gets, set at from five to 10 yards with no penalty or steel plates to slow shoot­ers.

The cham­pi­onship will be the first Level-Three match be­ing held by an af­fil­i­ate club in Ja­maica and sanc­tioned by the In­ter­na­tional Prac­ti­cal Shoot­ing Con­fed­er­a­tion, match di­rec­tor Harry Chin Hing told The Gleaner.


Ron­ald Brown Jr is fresh off a re­cent win at the Aruba Open Cham­pi­onship two weeks ago and will be go­ing all out to take the Stan­dard Di­vi­sion, which will also be keenly con­tested by JRA’s Andy Yapp and Mandeville Ri­fle and Pis­tol Club’s Orville ‘Reds’ Hen­riques.

Mean­while, the ever-im­prov­ing Greg Henry, David Lazarus and re­cent Mon­ster Match win­ner, Pa­trick Eve­lyn, will en­sure the favourites are ex­tended.

“Ei­ther way you take it, it will be a fast one be­cause I am boosted and will be hos­ing all the way through,” said Henry.


The big­gest group of shoot­ers should come from Pro­duc­tion Di­vi­sion in which se­nior vet­eran, An­thony ‘TJ’ John­son will be gun­ning to stamp his class and take the Pres­i­dent’s Medal. How­ever, Master Class Ryan Bramwell may very well be the fly in the oint­ment.

Chris Hart, Darin Richards, Ryan Grala, Chris Nunez and Paul Shou­cair have all been putting in trig­ger time and must be aim­ing for a top podium spot. Michael Brad­shaw has been fig­ur­ing promi­nently lately on the score sheets and has to be watched.
