As a young boy, Lyndon Powell used to shoot at tin cans with his father.
He's still practising the sport - but today he relies on his ears, not his eyes, to hit the target.
Lyndon, who began to lose his sight at the age of 17, is one of many who attend Tondu shooting club.
There, a new facility is helping blind and visually impaired people enjoy shooting practice.
Nicola Hendy went to meet them.
"Visually impaired people and shooting sounds a strange combination but it is really happening and we are all very excited.
This is one of the very few facilities available for people with a visual impairment around. I've had a go and for the first time the fact that I am completely blind made no difference. It was a completely level playing field. I managed to score four bulls-eyes out of five!"
A brand new shooting range for the visually impaired is being opened today in Bridgend. Specially adapted equipment using lights and sound technology allows shooters to hit their targets.
The new facility at Tondu Target Shooting Club - which has existed under various names since the 19th century - has been launched with the help of Julie Thomas, who lost her sight four years ago.
The dawn of rugby's professional era in the 1990s put an end to many long established fixtures in the calendar. But historic cross-border rivalries will be renewed tomorrow when Bristol travel over the Severn bridge to take on Bridgend in the British & Irish Cup.

The first Plaid Cymru presser of the new term was hosted by Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood and Assembly member Bethan Jenkins. The main theme was the need to build on the legacy left to Wales by the Olympics and the Paralympics.
We want to ensure that the inspiration from the Olympic games' success lives on. We want the Welsh Government to take the lead in capitalising in the renewed interest in sport. Small , simple , effective action will now reap rewards for generations to come.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games could be the kick start for the transformation of people's activity levels and the Welsh Government must grab this opportunity with both hands. The Scottish and Northern Irish Governments have all announced far-reaching initiatives to ensure their long lasting legacy. Wales cannot afford to be left behind.
