The June issue of Clay Target Nation is loaded with information to help you become a better shooter.
In our popular “Training Tips” columns, Paul Giambrone III goes into depth on exactly how you should be gripping your shotgun’s forend, while Gil and Vicki Ash warn about the dangers of letting your buddies lead you down the “sideways trails” on your sporting clays journey.
If you enjoyed last month’s feature about what a post-shot routine is and how to create one, you’ll love our interview with Haylyn Hanks, Will Fennell and other top NSCA shooters about what their post-shot routine looks like. On the skeet side, we’ve also got interviews with Mark Vaillancourt, Riley Chaddock and Caile Bradham about the biggest plateaus they hit on their climb to the top — and how they got out.
Shooters who struggle with their vision might wonder if contacts, glasses or corrective surgery would be their best option. Optometrist Ed Lyons fills us in on the pros and cons of each choice in “Enhancing Eyesight.” We’ve also got coverage of the NSCA Western Regional and advice from John Shima on sharpening your competitive edge. And if you’re itching to head north to escape the heat and shoot some sporting clays, we’ve got four mini claycations to Montana, South Dakota, Wisconsin and New Jersey you might want to consider.
This issue also contains a list of the NSSA’s High Average Leaders and an update from some industry partners about the question everyone is asking: “Where’s the Ammo?”
Finally, we’re launching two new departments in this issue that you’ll see pop up semi-regularly throughout the year. First, in “What’s the Difference?” we’ll explore how American skeet differs from international skeet. Secondly, in “Hey, What’s That Gun?” you’ll get a look at an eye-catching, unique shotgun you might have seen on the skeet field before — and hear the unusual story behind it.
