Gotta follow the rules.

Neighboring town lost a teenager at a 4-h club clay pigeon shoot. Story is that another kid’s shotgun got tangled in a coat and fired into his back. No reason to be loaded, no reason for the chamber to even be closed.

“Free” lessons are always the most expensive.

Tragic news. What looked like a fun time had to end so badly. Very sad.

Where was the RO?
WHO was supervising?

Obviously a lot of people need/needed additional education.

Surprising that a skeet load to the back would be fatal.

Must have been very close range. Very sad.

We often get surprised just because of the small size of bird shot. That's still a lot of energy...1 or 1 1/8 ounces at 1150-1200 ft/sec. Coming from a 26"-28" tube, it is a fist-sized pattern at any distance that people would be congregating on a trap or skeet range. My guess would be that he took it from 5-20 feet away, the way everyone congregates just behind the shooter at each station.

That's exactly how I recall it.
