Breaking Clays is a comprehensive and practical book on how to break more clays in your chosen game.



Clay target shooting is one of the fastest growing recreational sports. When compared to games of golf or tennis, it is relatively easy to learn the basics in a short period of time, so even a beginner is able to quickly take part in competitions and club events. Participants can be anywhere from 10 to 90 years of age and ladies can compete on a level playing field in a sport where strength has little impact on performance.
With the exception of a suitable gun, the ancillary equipment and accessories required are not prohibitively expensive and all these factors combined contribute greatly to the increasingly popularity of shooting sports.

This book is packed with invaluable top tips on how to break more clay in your chosen game. Having worked alongside some of the top competitors and shooting coaches in the world today, Chris Batha recognises that while every top shot has his own approach to shooting and teaching, what works for one person will not necessarily work for another. So, this book offers a distillation of the best top and techniques that enable you to improve our scores and knowledge to develop from the history of clay target games to safety, diagrams of the shotgun, targets, chokes, equipment, accessories, the fundamentals of shooting straight and more.


Chris Batha is considered to be one of the most qualified and most experienced shooting instructors in the world today, with over 30 years experience in wing and competitive clay shooting worldwide, formal qualifications from a variety of governing bodies including The British Association for Shooting and Conservation, The British City and Guilds and The British Clay Pigeon Shooting Association, all leading to his lifelong passion for fine guns.

Formerly the chief Instructor and Gunfitter for London Gunmakers E. J. Churchill, Chris has appeared on national outdoor television, made instructional videos and contributes articles on shotguns and shooting in major publications worldwide.
