Chuck Foster of Deep River Sporting Clays introduces us to the Touch-and-Go method of shooting sporting clays. What does Touch-and-Go have to do with consistently breaking targets?

In this final installment we evaluate the Ruger Red Label at Etowah Valley Sporting Clays in Dawsonville, Georgia — the capitol of the state’s moonshine culture. Our host, local race-car legend and former moonshine runner Charlie Mincey, takes us in a restored 1939 Ford Sedan moonshine car to the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame and Dawsonville Moonshine Distillery for a sampling.

In this installment, we take the second-generation Ruger Red Label to the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club and Barnsley Gardens to see how it shoots. Along the way, in a restored 1939 Ford Sedan moonshine car, our host Charlie Mincey regales us with tales of running hooch to Atlanta back in the day. The story is at http://goo.gl/ptuI2b
In the new Shotgun Life series we take the re-engineered Ruger Red Label into Georgia moonshine country to try it out at several beautiful sporting clays courses. Our host is 82-year-old Charlie Mincey who started running hooch at age 14. We drive the back roads in a 1939 Ford Sedan that’s nearly identical to his original moonshine hot rod.
