And today I’m at the site, I shoot and quite successfully. As if I have become stronger and more self-confident, – says Davit.

Armen is a graduate of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering SMI, he served a year in the army as a private. “And during that year, I realized that I wanted to become an officer – says Armen. – And today’s trainings have shown that my decision was correct.”
