Students show their wares at Echuca Clay Target Club.November 5, 2012 4:18am
Echuca College students visited Echuca Clay Target Club to try their prowess at clay target shooting last week.
After a discussion on gun handling and safety precautions, used at all clay target clubs, the students, with the help of one-on-one coaching, shot at 10 targets in single barrel mode on each visit.
At the end of day one, two students were equal on six out of 10 targets shot, a good score considering the boys had never fired a shotgun.
At the end of day two, Sam Pearson was a clear winner after repeating his first six targets shot with another six on day two.
Pearson ended up with a 12/20 score and was presented with a high gun certificate by club president Ron Traill.
Two other students, Hayden Favaloro and Isaac Quinlan, ended up with a credible 9/20 score.
Another test of hand eye co-ordination was between the two teachers, Craig Bessell and Bradley Mellington, and Mellington displayed the fact he was a natural clay target shooter downing all 10 on day one and only allowed two to escape on day two. One of those targets was deflected in the wind to such an extent even a seasoned shooter would have struggled.
