Hi Im Clive

I am a retired IROA CRO, I have worked a number of IPSC major competitions in many countries. I live in Bristol UK but will be moving to the Philippines to enable me to get back to shooting pistol on a regular basis. I currently own and shoot a Ruger 10/22 an Olympic Arms AR15 and a Remington 1100 in Practical Shootgun format. Nice to be here hope to meet you on the online and perhaps on the line sometime.

Welcome clivet197

Welcome to the site from another ISPC member and RO. I have worked many state matches and the Area 5 match and the 2001 Police & Fire Games that were hand in Indianpolis, Indiana. Been out of it for a few years and hope and pray to get back into shooting IPSC again this year.

Thanks for you Hi

Nice to meet you I am currently here in the UK and miss my handguns a great deal, Hence my move to the Philippines in July or August this year.
I find that here I am only able to shoot rifle and shotgun and then only under so many restrictions. I used to shoot every week with my pistol and miss that so much. I owned the following

S&W 686 6" with Millet Rear and a Partrage Front Sight Nice Trigger Job wolf springs and Fully Tricked.

Sig 229 9mm for Concealed Carry Competions real Mags.

Glock 22 good light trigger real Mags

22lr Colt Service Ace with Floating Gas Bleed Chamber for IPSC training on indoor Ranges

S&W mod 41 for target shooting

Beretta Model 76 for plinking

And the duty gear for each of these setups and I miss them all
It was a very good collection and my so called Gouverment took them away. So you see that I must move on. The Philippines I visited in 2000 and worked as an IROA CRO at the IPSC Would Shoot 12 my second World Shoot as worked as a UKPSA RO at World Shoot 11 here in UK at Bisley. I meet my wife in the Philippines in 2001. I have told you a little of my shooting history but dont think I am a great shooter, from the start of my IPSC shooting career I had one goal in mind and I am pleased to say I attianed that goal, to be part IROA and to stand with the Guys whos motto as Range Officer is " The Best Of The Best". I am proud to say before I retired from IROA I was promoted to IROA CRO and I will always hold that with great pride.

Have Good Day

Hi hope you having A good day

Thank you for the compliment. I must say that the worldwide comunity is the very best. I am sure you have already found that there are always Guys and Girls around you at your local range that are always there to assist and to coach you and any new shooter.

The one thing I have found most valuable when training at the range on shooting or officiating, is to have someone who is with you who is coaching you at all times. Just reinforcing you with the constructive comment at the appropreate moments on the the basics and offering a advise on all aspects of you performace. If they are experienced they will offer you the benifit of this experience and suggest not only areas for improvement but also advice on training systems to attian the higher performance level we all desire. This is the way I have attianed my goals and contiue to benefit from as a Shooter and Range Officer and I am grateful to them all.

So the guys with the experience are there to use, but dont forget the new face alongside you.

Thanks Agian
Have a Good Day

Thanks for your reply

Kumista Maganda Umaga

My Tagolog is I am afraid is gammi as I have spent most of my time in the Philippines in Mindanao but I have condo in in Manila and GF in Trese Martires but my ex wife and her parents live near Cadbadbaran Agusan del Norte. I have shot and worked many competition in in the Philippines in Cebu World Shoot XII and the Australasian Championships in 2001, Mandano City, Iligan, Davao, Surigao, Maasin City.

I love your country mostly because I have always found such good people to work with and enjoy just to be with. We have always got along so well together no matter how different our backgrounds.

So I am very much a Barangay Boy used to the way of life and comfortable without the aircon and living a traditional village life there.

I would be pleased to hear a little about your current life and more of your background

When you have time you will have to say hello to LittleDragon. His dad and him with family has spent time in the Philippines. So, if you forget and write the Philippines lauguge he knows what you are talking about. He is a very bright young man him and his younger brother. Good to see you here again on the site.

World Shoot XII Cebu

World shoot in Cebu was the best World Shoot that there ever was and will most likely ever be in my opinion.

This was the first real Major World Event that the Philippines had Hosted. The Standard of course buiiding and the dressing of stages with props was amazing and I will post some Pics of that as soon as I have the time. (For example my stage start postion was both hands holding the nose wheel pull handle on an actual Cessna 150 light aircraft). The level hospitality was unsurpassed and attention to all levels of match organisation was to the very highest standard.

I have always had a good rapore with the American National Teams you had teams Gold Silver and Bronze squads. I remember Todd Jarrett Gold Squad when I was helping out on my buddies stage looking down at me on the line as I was about to run the stage. It was 13.00hrs and very hot that day he said " Hi Clive haven't seen you since Bisley 1994 but now I gonna make you sweat you little Brit Bastard." Now that what I call an Old World, New World special relationship.

World Shoot XII 35 stages the best you have ever seen, build and dressed to an amazing level and run like a Rolex Diver. Yes there was contraverse never perfection but it was as close as I ever expect to see.

I have the courses of fire and will try to post those as soon as I can.
I am so busy at the moment packing UK my life here in the UK.

I promise I will post you all the details and Pic as soon as I am able
