Glasgow: Indian shooters continued to bring home more medals as Gagan Narang won the country's third medal on Monday clinching the men's 50-metre rifle prone silver at the Commonwealth Games here.

Earlier in the day, Indians Jitu Rai and Gurpal Singh won gold and silver, respectively, in the men's 50-metre pistol finals at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre.

Narang was in the fight right till the very end but Australian veteran Warren Potent was a tad better than the Indian. Eventually the Australian took the gold and Narang -- who has bagged eight CWG gold medals -- had to settle for the silver. England's Kenneth Parr won the bronze.
