CLAY TARGET SHOOTING
Shooting a firearm at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets; has at least 20 different forms of regulated competition called disciplines, although most can be grouped under the main headings of trap, skeet, and sporting clays.
Targets are thrown either as singles or doubles from one or more traps situated some 15 yards in front of the shooter, and are generally going away from the firing point at varying speeds, angles and elevations.
Targets are thrown in singles and doubles from two trap houses, at opposite ends of a semicircular arc on which there are seven shooting positions. The targets are thrown at set trajectories and speeds.
While the other disciplines only use standard targets, in Sporting clays almost anything goes. Targets are thrown in a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations and distances.
