Military investigates new cost-effective target practice methods

SAN DIEGO, CA – Top Navy brass are looking into less expensive ways of training their ship gunners, including enormous 5-meter-wide clay pigeons that can be launched from aircraft carriers the same way jet fighters or target drones are.

“These targets are quite affordable, at only a few million for a stack as opposed to hundreds of million apiece,” said Skeet Sergeant Carla Schmidt aboard the USS Ralph Parker.  “Gunners have to be quick, but you don’t have to steer anything.”

An added bonus of the clay targets is that they are made from biodegradable materials.
