Trap

Like Five Stand and Skeet, Trap is a shotgun sport in which the shooter fires at clay “birds”, or targets thrown from a machine on the shooter’s call. A standard round of Trap involves firing at five targets from each of five positions… twenty five targets in all. All targets are thrown in the air going away from the shooter. Of the three shotgun venues our Club offers, Trap is considered to be the easiest to learn. The Joe Meis Trap Fields consists of three trap houses, a manual target thrower, an enclosed building that is heated and air conditioned, and an open-sided shelter with picnic tables. We also have a patterning board to provide shooters with a visual indication of the point-of-impact of their guns. The Trap equipment is open to all Club members that wish to use them. The only requirement is to be trained in the safe and correct operation of the machines. There is an informal monthly Trap Match on the first Saturday of each month. A Fall Trap League starts on the first Saturday after the Labor Day Weekend and continues for eight consecutive weeks.

TRAP NEWS & UPDATES

The Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club (ARPC) offers its members the opportunity to participate in 3 trap matches every month.

The first two matches are held on the first Saturday of the month. They are a Singles Match and a Handicap Match. The singles event is shot from the 16-yard line while the handicap match is shot from a yardage marker commensurate with your skill level. Both matches follow established trap-shooting procedures.

The third match is held on the third Saturday of each month and is a Doubles Trap Match. This event is shot from the 16-yard line following established doubles trap-shooting procedures.

In 2018, ARPC began to offer ATA Big 50 matches to members. This is a great way to obtain registered birds at a fraction of the cost of going to 100-bird events at gun clubs some distance away.
