Trump gets some target practice during Iredell County stop

STATESVILLE, N.C. — Donald Trump is getting in some target practice on the campaign trail in North Carolina.

The Republican presidential hopeful stopped by the gun range of the local Fraternal Order of Police lodge in Iredell County before a scheduled meeting at the lodge with law enforcement officers.

Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell accompanied Trump and said "this man can shoot."

He says Trump used an M4 gun often carried by law enforcement. Trump says he had "a little shooting practice."

Trump is a staunch gun rights supporter and often talks about the issue on the campaign trail. He's licensed to carry a hand gun in New York, but sometimes jokes that his eldest sons, both hunting enthusiasts, are better shots.

On a different subject, he told the officers that he'll "take a very serious look" at congressional term limits if he wins.
