Kevin 'Fastfoot' Cheung displayed his usual fast movements and quick trigger finger to flog Lennie Moulton on way to taking the high overall trophy and president's medal in the Open Division at the sixth Fast & Furious Championship staged at Woodleigh, Clarendon, last Sunday.

Winning nine of 12 stages, Cheung amassed a total score of 1,018 match points over Moulton's 965. Montego Bay's Andrew Nish Sr shot his way to third -place

with an overall score of 749.9 match points.

Manchester Rifle & Pistol Club's Orville 'Reds' Henriques tucked 10 stage wins under his belt and 1030 match points to take top honours in the standard division with a scintillating display of speed and accuracy.

Second fiddle

The Jamaica Rifle Association's Gregory Henry played second fiddle to Henriques, scoring a 83.15 per cent shoot with two stage wins and 856.71 match points. David Lazarus took third with 834.15 match points.

The highly anticipated Production division did not disappoint as an array of newly acquired CZ pistols were presented, matching Fast and Furious reliability against the more seasoned Glocks.

With a show of youth and, possibly, a move to Master Class, Ryan 'Fly' Bramwell outclassed his opponents with a massive 1,037.31 points, taking nine of 12 stages for the high overall placing and president's medal in the division.

Ryan Grala, 887.55 points, and veteran senior, Anthony Johnson, 834.15 points, took the minor placings, respectively.

An International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) approved and sanctioned tournament, the 12 stages required more than 200 rounds and did not disappoint, as competitors blazed their way to what has become the fastest pistol shooting match on the calendar.

Notwithstanding a couple of disqualifications for unsafe gun handling, more than competitors negotiated the courses of fire with blazing speed and accuracy, braving the afternoon showers which came at the end of the day.
