The DSB German Federation organized during the first days of September The World Masters Shooting Competition, which took place for the first time in the Shooting Ground of Suhl, Germany.

This new international competition offered athletes age 45+ the opportunity to compete internationally on a top-level. Shooters competed in 5 categories for Trap, Double Trap and Skeet.

There was an exciting competition, with the support of Laporte, as big partner and collaborator, providing this championship with the most excellent clay targets and trap machines for the trap, double trap and skeet competition!

The competition took place incredibly well. Laporte was also present during this championship, encouraging clay shooting athletes, giving support to the organization and shooters and assuring that everything was working perfectly in the Shooting Ground of Suhl!

Undoubtedly, it was a great experience that we really enjoyed! As in other events in this shooting ground, we felt very welcome! The Laporte Natural clay targets performed very well, beautiful colour and excellent breakability, as the results of the competition showed, as well as the trap machines, which also performed perfectly.

We missed the participation of more women since only a few of them came to this competition and that was the reason because there was no final for the different categories of women. We really hope in the next edition of this championship to have more female presence and, naturally, more male shooters as well.

We would like to share with you some images taken during this competition:

Laporte and the Wiclay system

by Huw Hopkins

The Clay Pigeon Company has launched the WiClay pay-and-clay system for its Laporte machines. Used to count targets while people are shooting alone or with groups of friends, without the assistance of a referee or ground representative, the product has an audit feature in each counting unit that stores the total number of targets launched.

You can also use them with an audible countdown delay, and options to selection single or double targets options with preferences on if they appear simultaneously or on-report. The system also comes with a Club House Card administration unit that is easy to use.

For more information, contact the Clay Pigeon Company on 01949 843777.
