This is according to Vice Captain of the Guyana National Rifle Association (GuyanaNRA) Fullbore section, Dylan Fields who disclosed that practice
session have been going well over the past few months, adding that he is extremely pleased with the way the training has been progressing Fields stated that an
adjustment will have to be made owing to the absence of star shooter and national Fullbore Captain Mahendra Persaud who is recovering well following a brief period of illness.
