Shooting Clays From A Ferrari

Ferrari

Shooting firearms from moving vehicles is always a challenge. The Shooter needs to learn how to lead or lag the target in order to get a successful hit. Now add the difficulty of shooting not only a moving target but an aerial target. Compounded by the fact that you have to shoot the flying target while sitting in a Ferrari while the driver does doughnuts. Looks challenging to stay safe, not hit the Ferrari and get your hits on the clays.

Phillip Thorrold is the guy shooting the clays. The license plate on the Ferrari is his last name, so it is safe to assume that is his Ferrari he is playing around with. Must be nice to have money to burn. I am not sure which is louder, the shotgun or the Ferrari. I noticed he has a lack of hearing or eye protection. With money to burn I guess he can afford new eyes and eardrums.

    Shooting clays from a Ferrari, A.K.A: the look how rich I am game.

    Interesting historical note… to cheaply/easily develop the skill set needed to intuitively hit moving aerial targets from a moving platform, during WWII the US would train new recruits to be aerial gunners (shooting the hip/tail/turret guns on bombers and such) by having them shoot skeet while on a moving rail cart. Would the recruits get used to estimating relative speeds, leading/lagging targets, adapting to sudden direction/speed changes, etc. Also sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

    He is a professional shooter, with his own shooting academy, this is more of a cool advert than showing off.
    The plate might be there just for the video, the car by the way is not simply a Ferrari, but a limited edition one ($$$).

    • Indeed. Pretty clever way to advertise his business, plus he can presumably write the cost of production off on his taxes 🙂

    I tried the same thing today in my Ford Focus with much less success… I should’ve at least put down the windows.

      Wow! To new to be target fodder. Any info on what we’re seeing here?

        Nothing nefarious. This was a test by International Armoring Corporation on lightly armored vehicles.

    I’m ok with this kind of money burning.
