We provide free 12- and 20-gauge nontoxic practice ammunition to participants. Besides being nontoxic, steel shot is the cheapest nontoxic shot, (many times cheaper than even lead), holds the tightest patterns and has the shortest shot strings. If you can learn to shoot steel shot effectively, you can be more effective with any other shot. We provide free clay targets, too.
You must have some understanding of waterfowl or upland game bird hunting, shotgun shooting, chokes and ammunition.
