Picking up where legends such as Tom Knapp and Patrick Flanigan left, Italian-born Raniero Testa is the new globally acclaimed king of exhibition sharpshooting. Since 2012, he repeated his record-holding performance of twelve clay targets launched and shot with a semi-automatic shotgun in a single row for four times, with a fifth attempt scheduled to take place soon in Dubai.
In February 2014, he also established a new record with a scoped semi-automatic rifle, hitting five clay targets placed on the ground 10 metres away in one second, and five running boar targets 50 metres away, once again in one second, and all in a single row!
A top shooter for the Winchester Team, Raniero Testa has had a special edition of the Winchester SX3 semi-automatic shotgun named after him by the company. That's right: the shotgun you can buy at your local gun store is the same with which Raniero Testa literally pulverized all previous records!
