    Doing a college project for my public speaking class. I'm doing an informative speech about the three major disciplines of clay target sports.

    Does anyone have any idea where I can find good source material, besides this website of course? Things like history or hard statistics (target angles, target speeds)? I've got a solid outline but I'm falling short on the finite details which I'm going to have to cite. I could also really use quotes too, but I wouldn't really know where to begin with that.

    Does anyone have any recommendations about what I should mention?

    It's gonna be taped, I might post the film up here if anyone's interested in seeing it.

    The Remington website has a couple of files that are helpful.

    See the trap shooting fundamentals and skeet shooting fundamentals links.

    Try the guys at NSC in san antonio, tx. They should be able to give you the info on both sporting clays and skeet, or at least give you the names of someone where you could get that info. You might ask for Mike Hampton jr. and see if it will do you any good. certainly should be worth the phone call
