Free Skeet Clinic for California Skeet Shooters
For the past eight years Ginny Fazer has held a free skeet clinic in California alternating between Northern and Southern California for the greatest exposure. We have had over 900 participants in the last eight years and only 3 percent of those were registered shooters. The requirement for a registered shooter to participate is to bring at least two non-registered shooters to the clinic. All of the gun clubs tell us that they have more recreational shooters and new club memberships after the clinics. The clubs have all given the clinic a reduced target price as their donation. More

The Learning Curve – Long or Short?
from The Paragon School of Sporting
Where do our shooting skills come from? How are they developed and acquired?

At Paragon we call that, Familiarity. It is a mental inventory or database of sight pictures and swing movements - based on the target presentation in front of us. A presentation we will see again. And again. Building this critically important Familiarity requires training and repetition. More
