CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING: Inver Gun Club host Target Shoot

Inver Gun Club hosted a 15-Bidr DTL Re-Entry Clay Target Shoot on Sunday at Henry’s Quarry.

29 Guns attended today's Shoot at Henry's Quarry, organised by the Inver club. The format was a 15-Bird re-entry with a 10-Bird Sporting Pool-Shoot to test the Guns.

In the Pool-Shoot 5 Guns went straight, they were Bertie Coulter, Christy Milsop, David Mc Groary, Thomas Love and Mark Barnett. In the Shoot-Off Thomas kept his nerve to take 1st place. David was 2nd with Mark taking 3rd spot.

The DTL saw nine 45s with Bertie Coulter, PJ Gallen, Dermott Mimnagh, PJ Kelly, Chris Joyce, Michael Boyle, Damian Kelly, Tommy Love and David Mc Groary all securing possibles. There was little room for error in the Shoot-Off and Coulter made sure to leave no door ajar as he smashed another 15/45 to claim 1st place. Mimnagh was 2nd having called his second barrel into action once for a 15/44 while PJ Kelly needed two second barrels to take 3rd spot on 15/43.

An enjoyable day's shooting in bright conditions at the club's recently covered layout just outside Killybegs. The club have shoots at the end of every month throughout the year and shooters should check the Donegal Calendar to get the exact dates.
