Scottish clay shooter Thomas Young wins Zoli Kronos at 2018 European FITASC Sporting Championship

Italian gunmaker Zoli recently attended the 51st European FITASC Sporting Championship in Piancardato, Italy where competitors were invited to test out one of Zoli’s Z-Guns for a €10 fee, which entered them into a raffle to win a Zoli Kronos Sporting competition shotgun, worth £4,264.

Of the 568 shooters who entered the championship, all could shoot the practice stand as many times as they wanted, to collect more tickets and more chances to win the gun.

Attending his first ever championship, Thomas Young a 21-year old slate worker from Stirling in Scotland, purchased just one ticket which was drawn on the final day of the competition, winning him the Zoli, which was presented by Paolo Zoli, the president of Zoli.

Commenting on his win, Thomas said: “I couldn’t believe it when I received the call from Zoli to say I had won the shotgun. I only entered the competition on the Sunday after I was persuaded to by a friend. It really was the icing on the cake and a great end to my first shooting competition abroad.”

Derek Edgar, director of Edgar Brothers the UK distributors for Zoli, added: “Many congratulations to Thomas for winning the shotgun, we hope he has many enjoyable years of competitive shooting ahead of him with his new Zoli. At Edgar Brothers we believe it is fantastic to work with such a great brand who are so generous and supportive of the shooting industry.”
