India's Most Experienced and Trusted Shooting Academy
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Topgun Shooting Academy, a brainchild of international shooter Shimon Sharif, was launched in 2006 with an aim of professionalizing coaching in shooting sport and making it more accessible to the masses. Given India’s top-notch status in world shooting and the regular roll-out of champions, there is a growing demand among aficionados to be a part of this exciting journey. Add to it the sport’s profile which does not take into account age — anyone from eight to sixty-plus can enlist, the road ahead looks exciting for the sport. The future is promising but to ensure that sound training is imparted, expert guidance is essential. With an impressive record behind him, Shimon has ensured that his trainees are sound in basics. Shimon was the first rifle shooter from Delhi to represent India at the Shooting World Cup and has over 100 medals to his name. In 2003, he was adjudged the “Best Rifle Shooter” and entered the Limca Book of Records.
