Five Stand

Five Stand targets are thrown from several traps with the same variety of targets as conventional Sporting Clays but the traps are set out over a smaller area.

Squads of up to five shooters take up positions in fixed "five stands" (shooting positions) set out in a straight row.  Each shooter will fire at a sequence of five targets from each of the five stands.

After a shooter completes the first five target sequence he/she then moves to the next stand for the next five target sequence.  Each complete rotation from a shooter's first Stand to his/her fifth Stand comprises a full round of 25 targets.

Competitions are usually shot as multiples of 25 targets.  Five Stand is one of the popular disciplines offered by the Melbourne Gun Club.  Competitions are also offered for exclusively SxS shotguns.

Trap & Down the Line

Trap and DTL targets are released from an oscillating trap so the target is released unpredictably within a defined arc.

Sporting Clays

Sporting clay targets are thrown from numerous traps over a large area with each club and competition vastly different.
