Clay Shooting

Let­ter to the ed­i­tor

- Belgium · Austria · Belarus

You asked if read­ers had any sug­ges­tions for fu­ture con­tent. I would love to see a fea­ture on en­try-level semi-au­tos for clay shoot­ing. I have an over-and-un­der and I’d like to dab­ble with a semi-auto. Some ad­vice on the pros and cons of a semi­auto for clays, plus their prac­ti­cal use and main­te­nance would be most welcome. With the win­ter com­ing, I plan to keep shoot­ing and would welcome a guide to the best gloves to wear for clay shoot­ing in the cold.

There’s one lit­tle nig­gle I’d like to men­tion too. My son and I are both left­handed, and look­ing at guns for sale on­line it’s im­pos­si­ble to see at a glance which guns are left-handed. It’s usu­ally

pos­si­ble to click through var­i­ous fil­ters to get a left-handed se­lec­tion, but I’m amazed it’s not just a stan­dard part of the list­ing. Not only would it ben­e­fit my­self and other left-han­ders, but surely it would help busi­nesses sell their stock too. SW

The ed­i­tor says: Thanks for your sug­ges­tions – they are both good ideas and we will try to ad­dress them in fu­ture is­sues. As a right-han­der my­self, it’s easy to over­look the prob­lems faced by left-handed shots, so it’s use­ful to be re­minded now and again. If left-han­ders have any spe­cific prob­lems they would like our ex­perts to com­ment on, you are al­ways welcome to write in.
