January 2015

If sporting clays courses are brutally honest at revealing weaknesses in a shotgunner's ability to make certain types of shots consistently, forays in the fall hunting fields are sure to verify if those same swing/stroke problems were not solved over a summer of target shooting.

That our technique missteps on certain targets were not smoothed on clays is likely to be confirmed in the first game bird season of autumn—doves.

Virginia State Championship
Thanks to park manger Laurelyn Rawson, staff, volunteers, and Lori and Chuck Frazier for a well-run event.

Texas State Championship
The Texas State Championship is the largest state shoot held annually in the US. With 577 total entries, this event drew more competitors this year than a majority of the popular regional events.

Top-Flight Traps
Buying quality clays launchers for practice or commercial use is an investment that pays long dividends in performance and reliability.

When Pintails Were 10-Point Birds
More than a quarter-century hence, the Texas coast was rife with these graceful ducks aplenty for the taking.

Kansas State Championship
Rarely has any title been so dominated by an individual as has “Kansas State Champion” been by the 2014 All American, PSCA member, Derrick Mein.

Minnesota State Championship
More than 200 competitors took to the courses in late August to test their shotgunning prowess against tough targets during the Minnesota State Championship held at Caribou Gun Club near Le Sueur.

North Central Regional Championship
Bill McGuire became the 2014 North Central Regional sporting clays champion in mid August at Illinois’ Northbrook Sports Club.

Trust Your MA
Without at least some muzzle awareness to define the bird/barrel relationship at trigger time, no shotgunner can hit with consistency.

Getting It Right
