As the first in a series from Reuters on gun culture in various nations, photographer Andy Clark spent time at a public indoor gun range in British Columbia and at the 79-year-old Vancouver Gun Club where members shoot skeet and trap. The shotgun-only club has about 400 regular members and sells an estimated 1,100 day passes each year. Canada has very strict laws controlling the use of handguns and violent crime is relatively rare.
