Clay pigeon shooting is now often used by companies as well as social groups to help with team building and fostering improved client relationships in a healthy outdoor environment. Originating from a long tradition of hunting from many centuries ago, when the aristocracy shot live birds, including pigeons, clay pigeon shooting got its name later when shooting real pigeons as sport was made illegal in the UK in 1921. However, apart from the targets which became non-living clay objects, the remaining traditions of the sport remained the same. The target is still called a “bird”, a successful shot is still called a “hit” or a “kill” and a missed target is known as a “bird away”. It is, however, quite apparent that the costumes worn by these traditional pigeon shooters has undergone a few significant changes since then although it has to be said, some of the functionality has been worth preserving.
Owning practical accessories and sensible outdoor clothing is of primary importance when it comes to clay pigeon shooting. A vest that is too tight or a large cap that creates obstacles to performing well, or even being able to hit the target at all, are not the way to make progress in this sport. Just as concentration and careful awareness are absolutely necessary for shooting, clothing that you feel comfortable in and accessories that are functional and practical are also of equal importance.
