Team CZ-USA Sets Guinness World Book Shooting Record

posted on October 15, 2019

CZ-USA shotgun manager and pro shooter David Miller, along with the CZ-USA Team, set a world record for most sporting clay targets shot in a 12-hour period by a five-person team. The team’s final tally totaled 14,176 clays, and took place on Oct. 12, 2019 at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kan. Each team member (aside from Mr. Miller) was selected based on an essay submitted to CZ-USA, and had also participated in an Academics, Integrity, Marksmanship (A.I.M.) or Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) competitive shotgun-shooting qualifier event. The CZ-USA Team members for this historic attempt were:

Dave Miller, CZ-USA
Levi Henrichs, Sibley, Iowa
Makayla Scott, White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.
Jessica Strasser,  Waterford, Wis.
Weston Zolck, Herman, Neb.

The previous Guinness World Record for most sporting clays shot by a five-person team in 12 hours was 4,602 targets.

"This new world record took a great deal of practice, commitment and concentration," said Miller. "And these young shooters never faltered. I'm very proud of these young people and their stellar work ethic. This new world record could not have been set without their dedication to excellence."
