Trap Shooting at CFGPA

May 18, 2022, update.

Starting Wednesday, May 4 2022 we are shifting back to Summer operation.  Trap will now be weekly from 5:30 to 7:30 PM each Wednesday through until Fall.   There may be some specific cases though so be sure to check the Event Calendar for any closures that prevent the Trap sessions from being held.

Be sure to check out the Facebook CF&GPA group page for a weekly Wednesday afternoon  Trap Weather Watchnotice.  If it’s raining heavy or starting to rain and it’s obviously a valley wide thing at 4PM the plan is to cancel to save folks from driving out only to be disappointed.  I know some of you have to drive a fair way and it’s annoying when it’s for nothing.  So watch the CF&GPA FB page to check that the event is on before the drive.  If it’s sunny and fine there will still be a note to invite everyone out to join the fun.

Shooters of all skill levels from first-timers to advanced are welcome. If you’ve never done this before the more skilled are happy to explain the process and provide some pointers to get you started.

The club currently supplies clays at $5 per set of 25 birds. No need to bring anything but your personal eye and hearing protection, a shotgun and a few boxes of ammo.

Please note that acceptable shot ammo must be regular “trap” or “sporting” loads of normal velocity with lead birdshot pellets in the #7 to #9 range.  No steel shot, no magnum or Turkey loads and no larger low number pellets.

There’s very little out there which can make a person smile like seeing a flying clay turn to dust……  Come on out and join in the fun.
