Think you're quick breaking clays? Hate to break it to you, but you most likely don't hold a candle to John Yeiser IV. The high-speed shooter set the Guinness World Record as the world's fastest trap shooter Nov. 7, 2013, when he set the 16-yard line on fire. Yeiser broke 25 clays in 64.14 seconds — following American Trap Association rules — at the Green Head Gun Club in San Diego. Just watch the video to see his record-setting performance. The man is a relentless shell-shucking, pigeon-busting machine. Yeiser was armed with a 12-gauge Fabarm XLR5 Velocity, outfitted with IC choke, 92 millimeters in length. He was firing off 2 3/4 Winchester AA Tracker shells, loaded with No. 8 shot.
