Trap is shot from five stations arrayed 16 yards in front of the traphouse which is centered on the field and
trows quartering away rising targets. The trap machine oscillates at random from left to right and right to left
making the shooters observe and make decisions on the angle of the target prior to shooting. A full squad would be five
shooters who each start at one of the trap stations and take turns shooting one target each until they have shot at five
targets at which point they all move to the next station. The shooter on station five goes to station one at this point.
This is done until they have all shot at each stations and have shot at 25 targets.

Handicap Trap is also shot where shooters earn yardage from the 20 yard line back to the 27 yard line by scoreing well
First Perfect Score Custom:
When a shooter hits his or her first perfect score of 25 in either Trap or Skeet those shooters on
his squad shoot his or her hat. My hat was shot at the Las Vegas Gun Club in May, 2005 for a 25 straight in Trap.
My first 25 straight in Skeet came at Ozark Shooters in June, 2005.
Other games include 5 Stand which is shot on a skeet or trap field with extra traps set to throw sporting
clays type targets. Wobble Trap, which is somewhat like trap but the trap also osillates up and down
as well as side to side. Compac which I hear is a souped up version of 5 Stand, and Fitasc which
is a version of Sporting Clays but requires a down gun start and the targets can be delayed up to 3 seconds after the pull
