1st FPJ Cup Level 2 PPSA Sanctioned Match

This Level 2 PPSA Sanctioned Match has many plates to hit. I really enjoyed this historic 1st FPJ Cup 2017 organized by Actors Guild of the Philippines (Kapisanan ng mga Artista sa Pelikula at Telebisyon KAAPT) to raise funds for the welfare of people in the Philippine movie industry.

This is a special tribute to ‘Da King’ of Philippine movies, Fernando Poe Jr., who served as the President of the guild from 1984-1987.

I have to prepare more than 200 rounds of ammunition to complete the 7 stages of the competition under Media category with my Glock 22 caliber .40 pistol.

This shooting event is participated by the journo members of the PPSA Media Bureau, to promote sports shooting among media practitioners in the Philippines not only for defense against any threat but primarily to be physically active and maintain a good health.

Luckily, I got the 1st Runner-up Award competing fellow media Shooters in the Standard Division.

Thank you sir Jack Enrile, Mr. Rommel Cabungcal and Jingky Olisco of Philippine Practical Shooting Association (PPSA) for the waived registration fee of media shooters and Mr. Joseph Li of Icarus shirts.

Back to Blogging: My First Practical Shooting Event in 2017

Hello!

Rey T. Sibayan here reporting and back to posting my blogs. First., my sincerest apologies to everyone for not posting anything on almost 3 years since my last post in April 2014. Second, I’m back! Here we go and ready to share some insights, photos and videos on my day-to-day living. Of course, I will just post those interesting stuff.

Right now, I am sharing my participation in the Jack Enrile Cup 2017 last January 29, 2017. This was my first practical shooting event for 2017. When I say participation, that means no intention of competing with the pros in practical shooting but to just feel the excitement of running the courses of fire designed for team recognition for the upcoming World Shoot XVIII in France.

As expected, I made my ‘run’ on extreme courses of fire – 8 out of 15 stages Level 3 PPSA sanctioned match in Tierra Del Fuego Firing Range , Splendido Taal Residential Golf & Country Club, Laurel, Batangas.

 

Next Practical Shooting event will be on February 24, 2017 in the PAF-Media Fun Shoot with fellow media shooters mostly based in the Metro Manila. Are you Ready? Standby!

Thank you for the continuous support Philippine Practical Shooting Association (PPSA) especially to Mr. Jack Enrile, Mr. Rommel Cabungcal, Range Officers under the umbrella of National Range Officers Institute and to my fellow PPSA Media Bureau officers/members Raoul Esperas, Raymund Dadpaas, Angelo Almonte, Toots Parina and PPSA coordinator Jingky Olisco, Joseph Li of Icarus Shirts.

 

Protecting the Philippine Mediamen

Philippines is ranked the second deadliest country in the world for journalists.

The Committee to Protect Journalists says in it’s website CPJ.Org,  most of the journalists killed covered politics or corruption. At least 76 journalists have been killed for their work in the Philippines since 1992, when CPJ began keeping detailed records of journalist fatalities. Continue reading

Legal Guns Save Lives

I am a gun enthusiast and I also join shooting competition (not so competitive) with fellow mediamen shooters and the PROS in shooting sports.

Shooting competitions either practical shooting or tactical shooting are so much of fun and I really enjoy it but at the same time, I am aware, it is more of a ‘great responsibility having a gun in possession.’ Continue reading
