Dave McKenna’s “Off Target” (Cheap Seats, 10/6) states that the skeet shooting at the Olympics was the last of the rifle events.
Obviously not a gun enthusiast, McKenna needs to be made aware that shotguns are not rifles any more than a .45 automatic is actually an automatic weapon.
Did you make an error here or do Olympics officials class skeet, where a shotgun is used, as a “rifle” event?
