CLAY target hot-shot, Drennan Kenderdine finds himself in the Guinness Book of Records this week - all because he “got a little bit miffed”.

Drennan, who runs an online clay shooting business from his home in Norbury, near Stone, smashed the world record for shooting clays.

He hit 25 clay targets in a time of 31.98seconds, beating the previous record, held by an American.

But it all came about when his best pal, Marcus Iddon, asked him to loan his gun to someone else in a bid to break the record.

“I was a bit miffed at that,” said Drennan. “I knew I was just as capable of having a go at the record, so I contacted the people at the Guinness Book of Records to set up my own attempt.”

In the end, his friend’s friend turned out to be left-handed, so couldn’t use Drennan’s gun in any case.

“But I’m sure it was because I was vexed that I broke the record,” said Drennan, whose attempt was formally recognised by the Guinness Book of Records this week.

The shoot took place early this year at the Rugby and District Gun Club.

Using a Beretta semi-auto and Power Blue cartridges from Lyalvale Express, Drennan blasted 25 clays in a record time.
