Trap

Rules to follow at the trap range for the safety of all shooters.

All guns must have the action opened and contain no live or empty shells at any time, except while the shooter is on the firing line. A break open gun’s action may be closed when it is in a gun rack but it shall not contain a live or empty shell.

A contestant shall place a live shell in his/her gun only when on a post facing the traps. He/she may place only one (1) live shell in his/her gun at a time and must remove it or the empty shell(s) before moving from one post to another. In changing from one (1) post to another, the shooter shall not walk in front of the other competitors.


Trap Range ammunition allowed: Shot sizes ranging between #7 ½ and #9.  Shotshells are allowed a maximum payload weight of 1 1⁄8 oz of shot. Velocity may vary, but is limited based upon shot mass: 1,290 feet per second for 1 1⁄8 oz , 1,325 ft/s for 1 oz, and 1,350 ft/s for 7⁄8 oz. These are ATA rules and are published for the safety of all shooters.


Summer Trap will begin Monday, April 3rd at 6:00 PM and every Monday thereafter. Each round is $4 per 25 birds. Try to arrive between 6:00 – 6:30. Lots of fun! Come out & burn some powder!
