The Club holds open trap shooting on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. These shooting sessions are open to the public. The cost for a 25-bird line of trap is now $5.00. Shooters can bring their own shotgun shells (shot no larger than 7 1/2) or they can buy shotgun shells at $8.00 a box at the range.

The cost for the 20-week season is $30 for members and $40 for non-members. Persons that can't commit to the entire 20-week period can pay as they go, $4 per night for members and $5 per night for non-members. You will need your favorite firearm, 50 rounds of ammunition - .22 or center fire with a velocity under 1200 fps, and eye and ear protection. The shoot does have a timed and rapid fire segment so a semi-automatic pistol is recommended; however, those with revolvers and speed loaders will have time to complete the lines.
