TULSA, Oklahoma -- Some of the world's best skeet shooters took aim in Tulsa this weekend.

The Tulsa Gun Club hosted the International Skeet World Championship. And, it really is a competition between the best of the best in this sport.

Several people here participating are on the U.S. Olympic team, and one Oklahoma's own, Jon Michael McGrath, is vying for a position on the team.

One of the competitors is a coach at Westpoint. He came out of retirement just to participate.

"This is my first world shoot in 17 years," said Todd Haviland, Westpoint Coach. "So, I just wanted to see if the old guy could hang with the youngsters."
