It’s always fun when new shooters are introduced to the sport.

Alex Etchison and Sawyer Lang shot sporting clays for the very first time Saturday, at Ancient Oak Gun Club.

Ed from Ancient Oak gave them safety instructions and shooting tips. The boys shot both 20 and 12 gauge.

“Alex was nailing the ‘rabbit’ when the rest of us couldn’t,” said Sawyer’s dad Mike, our Director of Photography. “The boys had a great time!”

  2. Craig,”The ‘rifle’ is only chambered in ptsoil calibers and the receiver has been modified to not be long enough to accept rifle cartridges. It’s classified as a ‘pistol’.”Actually, the caliber has nothing to do with it.The receiver started life as a ptsoil, “designed to be fired with one hand”. It has never had a shoulder stock attached (nor is the barrel cut down from a longer barrel) therefore it is a ptsoil and not a “Short Barreled Rifle”.
