ZAGREB, Oct 7 (Hina) – Air rifles, intended for use by vision impaired persons, were presented on Wednesday at the shooting range of the Croatian shooting sport federation for the disabled, which is located in the Kustosija suburb of Zagreb.

The air rifles with safe handling adapted to persons with vision impairments enable blind and visually impaired persons to be better integrated as well as to participate in sporting activities.

The rifles are equipped with the VIASS Pro aiming system which works with sound. The higher the tone one can hear, the nearer they are aiming into the centre of the target.
