Pakistan Competitions?

Hello Fellow gunners..

I know most of you are in the states but I've also seen some Paki members here.. or may be you guys know something..

Are there any shooting competitions held in Pakistan? (esp Karachi / Lahore / Islamabad)? If yes, where and when?

If no, there are some excellent ranges and many people who would like to shoot in a competition.. I know of at least 10 others.. can be more.. Can something be organized? (There was once a local shooting competition in the Rangers Shooting Range, Karachi.. Entry was only $5 (500 rupees).. 100+ registered people came.. but it was long time ago..

This is what happens when there are no proper competitions:

People practice on people!

If you know of 10 people who want to compete, get together with them and set something up. There is a wealth of resources online in terms of types of competititions, corresponding rules, courses of fire, etc.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

Contact IPSC Worldwide and see what it takes to set up a new competition region. They successfully did that here in Estonia, so I can't see why it wouldn't be possible to do so there.
