Marksman Rodney Clarke had the sharpest eye on the range, when the Barbados Rifle Association held its national championships over two days at Paragon, Christ Church.
Clarke had no match, as he earned top spots in the combo shoot stage and static shoot stage for A Class marksmen to finish with 1 543 points.
Michael Holder, who won the challenge shoot for A Class shooters, earned second spot with  1 522 points. Charles Davis was third on 1 495 points.
In the B Class competition, Kirt Marshall was most accurate, earning that group title with 1 543 points, ahead of Denis Bellamy (1 522) and Davis (1 495).
The C Class action was dominated by Anife Best, who finished top of the heap on 1 460 points, ahead of Arron Parris (1 337) and Rickey McConney (1 331).
The shooters also had to battle with inclement weather, as ten minutes after the first round, a downpour affected proceedings. But the marksmen held fast, braving Mother Nature to complete three rounds of action.
Kevin Grant made sure it didn’t rain on his parade, earning the D Class title with a 1 487-point performance, ahead of Ryan Corin (1 446) and Verity Beckles (1 441). (BA/PR)
