The federal law that established the Civilian Marksmanship Program makes firearms safety one of its highest priorities. This law specifically states that a primary function of the CMP is “to instruct citizens of the United States in marksmanship; (and) to promote practice and safety in the use of firearms.” www.thecmp.org
Saturday morning trap league - Several members have expressed interest, but we need a few who are willing to help setup and run the machine a couple of times each month. If you are interested, come to the meeting for discussion, or contact Club President Mike Bambino
In trap shooting, contestants fire from a series of five stations located 16 yd (14.63 m) behind the trap. At a signal from the contestant, the clay target is hurled forward into the air, away from the firing line. In order to simulate the unpredictable flight patterns of birds taking wing, the targets are sprung out of the trap at various angles and in various directions. The clay pigeons rise to a minimum height of about 10 ft (about 3 m) and, unless hit, fall to the ground about 150 ft (about 45 m) from the trap. For the beginner, almost any 20ga, 16ga or 12ga shotgun can be used - Pump, double barrel, semi-auto and even shingle shot guns can be used.
Come to the club on any Tuesday evening May through September to learn more.
