Jamaica’s top gunners shot past their Caribbean rivals in last Saturday’s Spectrum Handgun Championship in all four divisions they competed in. 

Ryan Bramwell topped the Open Division, Andrew Yap took the Standard Division, Chris Hart won the Production Optics Division while Yeonie Campbell captured the Production Division. Bramwell put on a master class display of speed and accuracy to earn 1059.57 points after sending down 215 rounds in 130.70 seconds over the 12-stage course at the Jamaica Rifle Association (JRA) head office on Mountain Avenue in Kingston.

Second place Alrice Palmer got 949.3 points in 149.48 seconds while Lennie Moulton bagged 879.76 points in 147.33 seconds. 

“It was a great day. I shot very well. I was very fast and aggressive and I had very good hits so overall I came out the winner. It’s a great feeling. Having put in the work and gotten the results, it’s fantastic and we go back to the drawing board and keep training” said Bramwell.

He added, “I have been analyzing my shooting and keep improving. I keep going back to the drawing board and getting better. I think during last year while I was very accurate, the guys may have been a little ahead of me on time so what I have done over the past few months, I have started working a lot on the physical aspect and I have gotten much faster so there is more of me to handle now.” 

Yeonie Campbell copped the Production Division and topped the Ladies’ Category. In the Production Division, she got the better of Anthony Johnson in a nail-biter with just one point separating them while Rohan Wallace was third. In the Ladies’ Category, she was comfortably ahead of second place Florence Golding and third place Philana Brown.
