Unlike other venues, where preparations are still on in full swing for the Commonwealth Games, the Kadarpur full-bore range, after bearing the brunt of incessant rains two months back, is ready for the Oct 3-14 event.

Venue manager, Man Singh Rawat, was busy on Monday managing things for foreign shooters. "Everything is fine. I find the venue very beautiful and well-managed," said a foreign shooter on condition of anonymity.

Things at this venue have changed since Hindustan Times first reported about the shortcomings. The venue has been upgraded and renovated with latest state-of-the-art technology including movable electronic targets, which will be used for the first time for full bore shooting competition.

“We are ready for the show. We have done our best for the Games,” Rawat told said.

The best part about the venue is its location, surrounded by lush green lawns and hills. The family members and children of CRPF personnel are the happiest of the lot.

“Ever since Kadarpur became a CWG venue, we are eagerly awaiting the event to start,” said a jawan, Bhanwar Singh. “My kids are very excited and hope to see good showing by Indian shooters.”
