Shooting clays

On Saturday 17th September sixteen KES students travelled to the Acorn shooting range to either improve their skills, or have a first ever go at clay pigeon shooting. Shortly after arrival in the beautiful Hampshire estate, the students were split into three groups and set off with an instructor to see how many clays they could shoot from various different traps designed to test the shooters' reactions from the left, right and even rolling along the floor to simulate running rabbits. With expert tuition on hand, many clays met their end in the two hour session and all students made progress, regardless of their starting skill level. A great time was had by all and Mr Mapstone and Mr Blow even hit a few clays too.
