Straight Shooting: A World Champion’s Guide To Shotgunning

Two-time world sporting clays champion Anthony I. Matarese, Jr., literally grew up on a sporting clays range, has notched national wins in several disciplines and is one of the top shotgun coaches in the country.

In Straight Shooting: A World Champion’s Guide To Shotgunning, he explains what the equipment, games and targets are, then he gets into the basics. The most valuable part of the book are his detailed explanations of, and clear illustrations on, how to tackle more than a dozen sporting clays targets, including everything from teal to rabbits. He then covers more advanced techniques, including how to “focus” on the target, as well as the mental aspect of top-level competition.

This 295-pps., 8"x10" hardcover is filled with color photographs and diagrams that will make a difference on the clays range. The suggested retail price is $90. For more information, please visit clayshootinginstruction.com.
