Rules of Trap Shooting

PostAuthor: gungeek » Sun Aug 05, 2007 12:49 am

Olympic Trap has three fixed traps in each of the five shooting station. The left-hand trap throws targets to the right (up to 45o from center), the central trap throws straight-away targets (± 15o from center) and the right-hand trap throws targets to the left (up to 45o from center). Vertical elevation of targets is 1.5-3.5 m. at a distance of 10 m. from the trap. The length of the target trajectory (distance a target should travel) in windless conditions is 76 m.

Shooters move through a series of five adjacent shooting stations, shooting at one target at each shooting station. Two shots are allowed at each target and the score is the same regardless of the barrel that scores the hit. Gun position is optional but shooters usually pre-mount their shotguns prior to calling for the target.

Olympic Trap matches consist of 125 targets shot in five rounds of 25 targets each.

Great work Post rules for Single - International trap as well.

Here 3 points are scored with first shot and 2 if target broken with 2nd shot. Maximum score possible in 1 round of 25 targets is 75, maximum kills possible 25, but with 25 kills you may end up with only 50 points if all were 2nd shot kills.

There are various rules you must take care as a Pro. I have mentioned few below:
1.Never change your position station to station with loaded shells in your gun.
2.Always keep your gun at downrange.
3.Never pick a loaded gun when you not on fire line.
4.Always keep your guns in good mechanical condition.
