Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Clay Target Shooting in Melbourne
Like with any other sport, clay shooting takes practice, and there are specific rules you should follow to ensure that you don’t injure yourself and hit the target. Here are just a few factors to consider to avoid making any mistakes:
- Before you even take your first shot, you need to perfect your stance while holding the shotgun. If you don’t have the proper stance, you won’t be able to get the right aim to shoot the clay target.
- Following through. A mistake that newbies make is to try to shoot the disc as soon as they hear the spring release. There is an art to knowing when and where to shoot. Attending workshops or hiring a coach will assist you with learning the basics of shooting.
- Wrong gun fit. Holding the gun correctly so that it fits comfortably in your shoulder is critical to clay shooting. If your gun doesn’t fit snugly, you can cause damage to yourself from the gun recoil.
A History of Melbourne Clay Shooting
The art of clay shooting has been around for hundreds of years, and it has evolved into an Olympian sport.
- The sport initially began when birds were set free from traps and people would shoot them. This is where the sport received the name of pigeon shooting. In 1903 the name was officially changed to clay pigeon shooting and no longer made use of live birds.
- By 1860, shooters would aim at glass balls catapulted into the air. In 1882 brittle crockery was used, propelled from spring traps. Later, clay spherical discs were designed and have been used ever since.
- As the sport became more popular, shotgun lovers started participating in it; however, these guns weren’t always suitable for the range. At our course, we use Beretta 12-gauge shotguns , with safety goggles and earplugs as mandatory pieces of safety equipment.
