Earlier Patel's England team-mate Richard Brickell struck gold in the men's singles skeet.
Brickell and Cypriot Georgios Achilleos both fired scores of 144 but the Englishman won on the x-ring count, claiming seven to six from Achilleos.
Achilleos' team-mate Andreas Chasikos took the bronze with a score of 143.
"I thought I'd lost it there at the end but I just stayed with it and I'm delighted," said Brickell.
"This is the end of 18 months of work for me so I'd like to thanks all my coaches."
It was Brickell's second medal of the day, having already won a bronze with Clive Bramley in the pairs skeet.
Earlier Scotland's Jon Hammond added gold to his shooting medals collection.
Hammond fired a winning score of 696.9 to take the gold in the men's singles 50m rifle prone competition at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range.
Northern Ireland's Matthew Hall bagged the bronze medal with a score of 694.1 and Australia's Warren Potent took the silver with 695.4.

Hammond already had a silver and a bronze medal in the bag.
He took silver in the men's 50-metres rifle 3-position and silver with Stirton in the men's 50m rifle 3-position pairs.

"I knew I was shooting well and now it's just relief."
