    Shooting for success

    Copeman golden in his Canadian trap shooting championship debut

    Jason Copeman needed just a small window of opportunity to make a big impact in his national trap shooting debut.

    Actually, that’s putting it mildly, given the outcome of the recent Canadian championships in St. Thomas, where the 34-year-old Miltonian beat out 221 marksmen to lay claim to the handicap division title.

    Taken to a shoot-out by one of those competitors — a far more seasoned Peter Tsementzis of the Hamilton Gun Club — Copeman admits to being more than a little nervous before the sudden death tiebreaker.

    “My legs were literally shaking,” he recalled. “It’s one thing to shoot a perfect round, but to now have more than 200 shooters and referees watching behind you for a shoot-out, it’s pretty intense.”

    kudos to my brother, he worked really hard and it payed off, a great piece of shooting. One of the greatest piece of shooting artistry went unnoticed.(Don Mattison) Shooting in hurricane type conditions and was down only one and on the the last squad knowing a 199 was high, the winds were at least 60-70 from different directions and the sky jet black(check the pics on the lost target site!) to only his lose his last two targets on his last post. Standing Ovation indeed...never seen anything like it!!

    "Though often mistaken for skeet shooting, trap features an osculating launcher that spits out four-inch targets — travelling up to 42 miles an hour — at a variety of different angles."

    Nice news article, but "osculating" ? That's the technical term for Kissing.
