Today sees the start of the Nad Al Sheba Desert Shooting Championship in Dubai.
Over 800 competitors are in attendance and Clay Shooting has reporters on the ground. We will keep you updated to the competition’s progress throughout the week and have a full report in the next edition of the magazine.
Clay Shooting’s Rhys Simpson-Hopkins spoke to Trevor Bell and Callum Fraser from Scotland who said: “It’s generally very well organised. The administration like getting guns into the country needs a bit of improvement and there is a lack of communication on some things but it is still a great tournament. The targets are difficult, with some being more tricky than requiring great skill.”
Here is some video footage of top shot and coach John Wells running around a camel then shooting a clay from EnglishSportingClays.co.uk.
