The Essentials of Trap Shooting

People are antsy to get outside now that the nation-wide stay at home orders are starting to wind down. So, what new outdoor activities should you consider now that you can go out? Go trap shooting with a group of friends. Even though some restaurants and bars might still be closed, gun clubs are open. Trapshooting is a great American sport that is even older than professional baseball in this country. So, what do you need to know about participating in this exciting sport?

Trapshooting dates back to the late 1700s. The first recognized competitive event was held in Cincinnati Ohio in the year 1831. The original targets for the sport were birds released hats in a random sequence. Glass balls would come to replace the birds in the 1860s. The clay discs that are used in today's competitive shooting arrived to replace the glass bulbs in the early 1880s, about the same time Duluth Pack was founded (1882).
