Avneet And Her Bandook

As some of us shoot rifles as a recreational activity, while others view them as a defense plan or just admire the way rifles look, it was nice to come across a Punjabian, Avneet Kaur Sidhu, an international rifle shooter, who excels at using them as part of a sport!avneet1.jpg

According to the The Tribune, she recently … won a gold medal in the womens individual 10m Air Rifle event of the Australia Cup Shooting Championship held at Sydney International Shooting Centre (SISC) in 2006 (yea this news is kinda old, but I thought it was still worth highlighting since it’s a Punjabian Sikhni in sports).

Hailing from Bathinda, Avneet has earned a bearth for the Beijing Olympics, representing Team India! Congratulations! Watch out for the eye and steadiness of this Sheerni!

According to her facebook group (all of you can join now: “Avneet Kaur Sidhu”), Avneet is a 2001 alumnus of Dashmesh Girls College, Badal (Muktsar) with an English Literature degree and currently an Assistant Manager at Air India. You go girl an affection for books and guns, while promoting the hawayee jhahajaz (i.e. airplane)!

Wishing you the best of luck in Beijing Avneet! Its wonderful to see a Punjabian excelling in sports and representing us on the world scene!

    the link for you tube 'ambiguous' is not a shotgun, its a rifle known as 12 bore (bara, 12 in punjabi) , go stand in front while she fires and you will know the difference between 12bore and shotgun.

    GO Avneet GO!!!

  8. sizzle says:

    yes…12 bore is what we call 12 gauge here in the western world, as in 12 gauge shotgun (or 8, 10, 16, 20 gauge). also, it's a double barrel bore loading shotgun in the video. and if i stood in front when she fired either a rifle or 12 gauge shotgun, i wouldn't know the difference – i'd be pretty dead (margi in punjabi). i'm only happy to share this knowledge because i am still bored. the more you know.

    but back to Avneet…continue to kick ass with the target rifle.

    Raj…this reflects badly on you and your agenda in backmouthing Pakistanis, Sikhs and other groups…please take your hate somewhere else where it will be welcomed ie India.
