Team CZ-USA Sets New Guinness World Book Shooting Record!

 

CZ’s Team of Young Shotgun Competitors Re-Sets the Bar

Kansas City, KS (October 14, 2019) – It’s official. As in, Guinness World Book of Records Official! On October 12, 2019, CZ-USA, David Miller, CZ-USA’s shotgun manager, and pro-shooter, and the CZ-USA Team set a world record for most sporting clay targets shot in a 12-hour period by a five-person team. 

The team ended up breaking a total of 14,176 clays.

“This new world record took a great deal of practice, commitment and concentration,” said Miller. “And these young shooters never faltered! I’m very proud of these young people and their stellar work ethic. This new world record could not have been set without their dedication to excellence.”

The CZ-USA Team members for this historic attempt were:

  • Dave Miller, CZ-USA
  • Levi Henrichs, of Sibley, Iowa
  • Makayla Scott, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia
  • Jessica Strasser, Waterford, Wisconsin
    Weston Zolck, Herman, Nebraska

Each team member was selected based on an essay they submitted to CZ-USA. Each applicant also had participated in an A.I.M. or SCTP competitive shotgun shooting qualifier event.

This was an Official Guinness World Records attempt, and the previous Guinness record for most sporting clays shot by a five-person team in 12 hours was 4,602 targets. The new record was set at the Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas, October 12, 2019.

“We had an enthusiastic crowd on hand, and they really cheered us on,” Miller added. “Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and to our sponsors. You made a huge difference!”

Since 1997, CZ-USA has given American shooters and hunters the best firearms the Czech Republic has to offer. In 2019, we completed yet another milestone by producing CZ firearms here in the United States at CZ-USA’s Kansas City, Kansas, facility. With our ever-increasing production capabilities stateside, CZ-USA will continue to improve, innovate, and add to the CZ-USA line-up of high-quality, affordable handguns, rifles, shotguns, and suppressors, plus custom-quality handguns from Dan Wesson.
