BB and Shotgun Shooting Video for Sale

LAS CRUCES -- Learning to shoot a shotgun by first practicing with a BB gun is the innovative technique described on a video entitled "Flying Targets: From Basic BB Gun To Shotgun Shooting" produced by New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service.


BB guns are easier and less expensive to use than shotguns and are a perfect instrument for learning skills that can be transferred to shotgun shooting.

The video begins with a description of the parts of a gun, lists basic firearm safety rules, and shows how new shooters can determine their dominant eye.

Instructors on the tape demonstrate the proper shooting stance, gun carrying, pointing and firing procedures, using dry-firing techniques, and both still and moving targets.

The 19-minute tape costs $9.95 and is available from Agricultural Communications, Box 30003, Dept. 3AI, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM 88003-0003, or call (505) 646-2701.
