Range Time Quiz: First Inanimate Targets

Hot-cold pack
Hot-cold packCongratulations to Tim Adams, winner of last week's Range Time quiz drawing! Tim correctly answered the quiz question and was drawn as the winner of a Hot and Cold Pack with SCTP logo. Last week's question and possible answers:
    The first inanimate targets used for shotgun shooting games were made of what material?
    • Dirt
    • Clay
    • Paper
    • Glass
    • Wood
The correct answer is Glass. It seemed very obvious to many of you that the answer was Clay, but the currently-used material came along much later. Previously, glass balls were used. If you're ever at SSSF headquarters at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, Texas, stop by the NSSA-NSCA Museum and Hall of Fame, where you can see displays of beautiful and colorful glass balls. Watch next week’s Range Time newsletter for another quiz question and your chance to win a prize.
