The World English Sporting Championships took place in San Antonio, Texas on 27/28 April, and a large British contingent travelled across the Atlantic hoping for glory – and that glory came in the form of Richard Faulds, who took High Gun honours in this prestigious championship and a dazzling performance.
This was just eight weeks after Richard began shooting with a new Caesar Guerini shotgun, and marks his first major result since switching to the brand, distributed in the UK by Anglo Italian Arms. Both Richard and his wife Tanya have been on good shooting form since using the new brand, with Tanya posting two personal bests at Southdown recently.
Richard was the only Brit to crack the top five in the United States this year, and he faced tough competition from the home team. Richard had set out early to post 95 on the Winchester/Browning course and establish a lead, following with 98 on Beretta/Laporte. The only Brit to make the final shoot-off, and despite a threat from an in-form Bobby Fowler, Richard dusted 20 targets to take the title. Full report in the July edition of Clay Shooting magazine.
