If you’ve never tried “Busting Clays,” now is a great time to give it a shot.

Tom Pyburn, manager of MWR Outdoor Recreation, said “Busting Clays” is the name of the organization’s skeet shooting spring training sessions.

“The targets that you shoot at are called clay pigeons,” he said. “When you shoot them, the goal is to break (or ‘bust’) the target.”

Designed for beginners age 12 and up, the sessions will provide participants with basic skills in leading, follow-through, trigger pull, shotgun placement and body movement.

“We give a good overview for those who have never been exposed to shooting,” Pyburn said.

Cost is $50 per person for a two-hour session and includes all equipment and supplies.

“It’s an outstanding value,” Pyburn said. “Everything that they need, we provide,” from shotguns and “clays,” to ammunition and eye and ear protection.

Frederick Anderson, the in-house skeet shooting professional, will lead the sessions, which will be offered at Outdoor Recreation on Sportsman Drive on the following dates: April 24 and 25, May 8 and 9, and May 22 and 23.

Sessions can also be scheduled on other dates, upon request. Outdoor Recreation is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Reservations for “Busting Clays” are required. To reserve a session or for more information, call Outdoor Recreation at 876-4868.
