The competition season is here! Now’s when all that training you put in over the off season pays off. You did train, right? Whether you followed our advice and dry-mounted in the living room for half an hour every day, or haven’t even opened your gun cabinet in four months, now’s the time to get out there and get shooting. And the May issue of Clay Shooting contains everything you need to make those opening shots a success.
Ben Husthwaite delves deep into the art of tuition, going through the ideal lesson plan from start to finish and telling you what you need to ask to make sure you’re getting value for money from your clay shooting coach. Meanwhile, Don Brunt profiles 10 female shooters who are destined for success in 2018, and Benjamin Lycett interviews Ed Solomons to find out why he’s sacrificing personal glory to spend time coaching others.
We look forward to the Clay Shooting Classic and British Schools & Young Shots Championships, as well as bringing you all the latest fixtures and results. Vic Harker reviews the sumptuous Krieghoff K80 Parcours, Richard Atkins tests some budget cartridges from Saga, and we pit boxlocks against sidelocks to find out which really is best.
