London, June 26 (ANI): An American Colonel praised Prince Harry's shooting skills after he joined cadets from an American military academy on a firing range.

"They did well - better on the right side where Prince Harry was than on the left, which is typical for this range.

"They hit 60 per cent of the targets on the right and 35 per cent on the left where the targets are harder to see," The Telegraph quoted Colonel Casey Haskins, head of military training at West Point.

"I've seen him do one thing but he clearly knows how to shoot and clearly knows how to move. Given the stress of all this and never having done this before, he did quite well," he added.

The exercise involved spotting the targets - 40 of them, spread out between 50 and 300 metres away in a large clearing.

Harry, a trainee Apache helicopter pilot who had his Army wings on the front of his fatigues, began firing rapidly on a standard US Army M4 assault rifle, and then settled down into a rhythm.

West Point has around 4,400 cadets who spend four years studying for a degree, which combines academic studies with physical and military training. (ANI)
