Clay Pigeon

claypigeonClay Pigeon shooting, also referred to as Skeet shooting, is probably the most familiar form of target shooting to most people in this country. Shotguns are used to shoot at clay discs flying through the air in front of the shooters. They are launched when the shooter signals he or she is ready by shouting "Pull!". When (or if) the shooter hits the clay, it disintegrates leaving no doubt about whether a hit has been scored. The skill is in anticipating how far ahead of the moving clay to aim, and to shoot whilst tracking its trajectory.

If you are interested in taking up Clay Pigeon shooting, please start by contacting the Clay Pigeon Shooters Association (CPSA), who will be able to help you to find a club or shooting ground in your area that will be willing to help you become proficient in this discipline.
