Check out this video of skeet shooting being taken to an all new extreme level.

Extreme shooter Phillip Thorrold faced down a line of electronic clay target throwing machines armed with an array of his favorite shotguns. The clays were launched straight at him on his command and the pressure was on.

If Thorrold missed his target, he wouldn’t have much time at all to avoid getting hit himself. Although clay pigeons break easily, they would still do some damage at the speed they are launched.

Skeet shooting is usually a pretty safe shooting sport. Clay pigeons are launched in patterns replicating the flights of birds and the shooter takes their best shot. It is a great way to practice for bird hunting or just a fun way to spend time at the range.

Thorrold puts on an impressive shooting display and pulverizes most of the clays to dust. He does have to dodge an oncoming fragment at the end, but all in all, he proved that he can shoot accurately in high pressure situations and that is exactly how hunting is sometimes.
