Shooting Trap is one of many shotgun disciplines and requires a great deal of mental concentration. In my opinion, it is one of the hardest disciplines of them all.
What makes clay pigeon (trap shotgun) shooting so unique is that it doesn’t depend on your age. This allows my friends, who are 70 and older, to train with me over the winter season, which makes training even more enjoyable.

Goals for this season

To be the best, constantly improve on personal records and fill my medal rack.
