THB, Banditos, Wayward and more confirmed for Cosmic Cocktail!

Calling the Shots; Eastern Shore: After blasting a few targets at Pintail Point, it's easy to see why sporting clays is the fastest-growing shooting sport in the country.

THE BALTIMORE SUN

My instructor, Wes Russum, pushes a button, and an orange clay disk sails away from the spring-loaded contraption at our feet. It spins up into the sky, floating like a tiny Frisbee, then stalls and falls to the ground, where it shatters noiselessly.

It's a straightaway bird, the easiest shot in the game.

Rounds are 50 and 100 birds, $18 and $35, respectively. Guns for rent.
