Popular Trap and Skeet Shooting Terms

Trap and skeet shooting are popular sports for many shooters. Participants may appreciate the challenge, competition, or practice for hunting provided by this sport. Many trap and skeet shooters are also general shooting enthusiasts. Being familiar with common terminology related to these and other types of shooting can be useful for selecting a range or gun club.

  • Clay Pigeon - A common term for the targets used in trap and skeet shooting.
  • Olympic Trap - A shooting competition structured with several different machines firing targets. This ensures that all participants are faced with equally difficult rounds.
  • Double Trap - A shooting competition structured such that participants have multiple clay targets launched at the same time.
  • Wobble Trap - A shooting style in which the firing machine moves up and down as well as side to side. This introduces an additional variable, and is much more demanding of shooters.
  • Plinking - Casual, informal target shooting. Participants often use improvised targets.
  • Steel Targets - Targets which can be used multiple times. They will often rotate down after being shot, and can be reset between uses.
  • B27 Target - A popular target for many shooting enthusiasts. B27 targets have several different subcategories, but they are typically silhouette shaped. They can be found pre-printed, or as printable image documents. These are excellent options for indoor ranges or clubs where moving targets are not allowed.
  • Bullseye Target - A standard shooting target. Some are printed on material which flecks away when shot, making the bullet hole much more visible at a distance. These can also be used for scoring in competitive shooting.
