Sporting Clays

Sporting Clays is a game invented by the British in the early 1900’s. They used clay targets to practice for driven game birds. From that, sporting clays became very popular and the first competitive shoot, the British Open, was held in 1925. Bob Brister of Field & Stream magazine USA, did a feature article on Sporting Clays for the American people in July of 1980. It didn’t take long to catch on because on September 27th, 1980, the first Sporting Clays shoot was held at the Remington’s Lordship Gun Club in Connecticut. From there, many organizations were formed like the NSCA (National Sporting Clays Association).

Five Stand

There is also a shooting discipline called “5-Stand”. This sport is basically Sporting Clays stationary and can be shot by an individual or 5 people together. There are 5 shooting positions, these positions have a shooting menu that explains the sequence of targets that are going to be presented to the shooter. A typical 5-Stand consists of 5 to 8 trap machines and like Sporting Clays, throw a variety of different presentations. Once you have shot 5 shots in your station and all other have completed their shots, you rotate through each station until you have completed 25 shots. This completes a round of 5-Stand.
