Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting. Described as “golf with a shotgun” the sport differs from trap and skeet shooting in that:
- It is often considered to be more difficult than trap or skeet.
- It involves shooting clay targets at multiple locations (called stations).
- Unlike trap and skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clays targets are thrown from Clay throwing machines in a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations and distances.
The original idea behind sporting clays was to create an experience that more closely reflects actual hunting conditions. Whereas top-tier trap and skeet professionals may have hit ratings nearing 100%, the best sporting clay shooters hit their targets only about 93% to 95% of the time. Although the sport is challenging, it is quite popular with novice shooters and ordinary hunters. Proper ear and eye protection and firearms safety procedures are required to be followed at all times while on the course.
As owner, and investor, Mike Mezrah is involved in the day to day activities of the range, as well as, promoting new and exciting activities for all. We will concentrate on individuals, charitable fundraisers, corporate shoots, fun shoots, family events, youth shooting, women shooting clinics, and shooting instructions available.
