Shooter Chris Hanson, of Stainforth, aims for England
8:00am Monday 12th August 2013 in News
Stainforth man Chris Hanson was on target when he competed in the English Open Down the Line Championship in Northumberland.
Taking part in a shoot off, he won the Dougall memorial shoot, with a score of 99 targets and 293 points out of a possible 300, and was presented with the Readhead Challenge Bowl.
In the English open shoot, he hit all 100 targets and scored 289.
Aged 25, Chris got his first shotgun when he was 15 and got the bug for clay shooting. He then stopped at 18 due to work commitments and took up shooting again in September 2011, choosing the Down the Line trap discipline.
Chris aspires to shoot for England.
