However, there were 1,195 who failed to pass the qualifications required to belong to a shooter classification for failure to attain the necessary score. They will undergo a seminar on gun proficiency and handling of short firearms and will re-take the classification shootfest. Moreover, they were given 100 ammunition each for them to practice further and ultimately develop confidence in the use of their weapon.
“I congratulate the winners of this Clash of the Ranks Shootfest which we have conducted to boost the confidence and proficiency of police officers in the use of their issued short firearms. Moreover, I enjoin the winners of the worst individual and team shooter category together with those who failed to meet the required score to be classified as a shooter to take this as a challenge to aim for improvement for the betterment of your capability in handling your issued weapon,” said PMGEN SINAS.
