Youth Shooters: Help CZ-USA Set a New Guinness World Record!

CZ-USA and David Miller, CZ-USA’s Shotgun Product Manager and Pro Shooter, are going to attempt to set the new Guinness World Record for most clay targets shot in a 12-hour period by a five- person team. Miller is the current Guinness World Record title holder for the most sporting clay targets shot in one hour. He needs four more shooters, two from the SCTP and two from the A.I.M. shooting programs to join him October 12, 2019, at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas.

“CZ-USA is once again very excited to provide opportunities to the youth shooting community,” Miller said. “Our goal with this event is to provide a new experience for those young shooters who want to test their skills at the highest level. By supporting the SCTP & A.I.M shooting programs we are helping with the development of our youth. I am personally looking forward to meeting my new record-setting teammates!”

CZ-USA 1012 shotgun

All team members will use the new CZ-USA 1012 shotgun. The CZ 1012 is CZ-USA’s next evolution in their semi-auto shotgun line with the 1012’s gas-less operating system. Instead of redirecting gas from the barrel to run the action, the 1012 uses a spring within the bolt to store energy during the shotgun’s recoil and expends this energy a split second later to rotate and unlock the twin lugs from the barrel extension and to withdraw the spent shell.
