Donald Trump is getting in some target practice on the campaign trail.

The Republican presidential hopeful was scheduled to meet with law enforcement officers Thursday at a local FOP Lodge in Iredell County, North Carolina, but decided to stop by the lodge’s gun range first.

“I gotta say, this man can shoot,” said Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell, who accompanied Trump.

He said Trump used an M4 gun often carried by law enforcement.

Trump tells the gathered officers after that, “We just went down to the range and we had a little shooting practice.”

Trump is a staunch gun rights supporter and often talks about the issue on the campaign trail.

He is licensed to carry a hand gun in New York, but sometimes jokes that his eldest sons, both hunting enthusiasts, are better shots.
