Trap

Trap

American Trap is an extremely popular shotgun sport where clay targets are thrown by a machine located at approximately ground level and covered by a “trap house.” For singles and doubles, there are five “stations”, each 16 yards behind the trap house. In singles, each competitor shoots at five targets from each station. The trap machine oscillates left to right within a 54 degree arc (up to 27 degrees right and left of center), and at least a 34 degree arc (up to 17 degrees right and left of center) and the competitor does not know where in that arc the target will emerge. In doubles, the machine does not oscillate, but throws two targets simultaneously with each competitor shooting at five (5) pairs (10 targets) from each station.
