Dale is not exactly new to the clay target sports. He has been breaking clays for well over 30 years. A common theme about our sport holds true with Dale, like many before and hopefully more to come, he was introduced to Sporting Clays through friends. Fellow trap competitors, Mike Hampton and Mike Jordan, brought Dale out to a sporting clays and few years later Dale busted his way into Master Class.

Dale's Guide to Breaking More Clays
While not a target hog like some of the others profiled before, Dale limits his shooting to competition and keeps that number around 2000 per year and doesn't practice like he did in the past. His shooting system is very simple. Start by clearing the mind as you enter the stand. While reviewing the look pair determine the distance, speed and deceptive target setters tricks. To keep things as easy as possible Dale prefers the simple approach of working the basics with a move, mount and shoot method. Dale only shifts to an almost full pre-mount during target presentations that are similar to a trap style shot.

Dale would like to see the sport improved through the addition of youth shooting programs. Also, Dale would like to see a better break out of the classes to allow for more fair competition. His suggestion to new sporting clays shooters is start with a good coach, get properly fitted to your gun and stick with your gear and your program.

I think we can all learn from Dale's shooting success. Stick with the basics, stay focused and start winning. See you on the course… Dan Grebel
