In the round of twenty five targets each shooter gets two lefts, two rights, and one straightaway target from each station. During USA Shooting matches, the maximum shot charge is restricted to 24.5 grams using any safe powder charge. Also the Olympic target is made harder to handle the higher target speed and is slightly larger with slightly less height than the American trap target.
FSA’s bunker is open for practice on Wednesdays and Saturdays at twelve o’clock, noon. New shooters are always welcome. Rules and protocol are explained, and questions answered.
Over/Under shotguns are preferred, but other type actions are allowed (semi-autos, pumps, side by side). Due to the speed of the targets, pump actions would be a handicap. Bunker targets are challenging, but also rewarding. Give it a try!
