Back in the day, trapshooting with our fathers, brothers and sisters was the most fun some of us ever had shooting shotguns. We usually shot trap in late summer to practice our wingshooting skills in preparation for the upcoming small game hunting seasons. It was just for fun; we rarely kept score.
We used a manual, spring-loaded trap machine that launched clay pigeons, one or two at a time. Our guns were all-purpose field shotguns, the same we used to hunt upland game including doves and quails or rabbits. A quick set-up in a farm field with several boxes of low-brass shotgun shells and a box of “clay pigeons” meant hours of good, cheap fun. Granted, it’s still tons of fun, but there’s cash, trophies, sponsorships and scholarships up for grabs, too.
