    What: Practice Trap Shoot using portable traps and or ATA style trap field.

    Where: Southwest Gun Club’s McComb Range facility. It is 6 miles East of McComb, MS on US Highway 98. When driving from McComb, drive East on US98 until you see the Homestead turnoff sign. Drive 2 miles further and the entrance to the range is on the North side of the road. If driving from Tylertown, MS, drive past the Bogue Chitto River Park and look for a roadside market on the right. The range road is 2.2 miles past the store, on the right. The name of the range road is Edna Drive. Drive to the back of the property.

    When: The Trap Shoots will be scheduled, weather permitting, on the First Saturday of the month shooting starts at 9:00 AM ending at the discretion of the match director. All shooters should arrive at the range at 8:30 AM, to help with setting up the traps and equipment. Shooters should also help with cleanup and disassembly of the equipment. Emails will be sent to the membership telling them about the trap shoots on the Thursday before the shoot. Saturday, December 3, 2016

    Equipment: Any shotgun that is safe to shoot using shells that do not exceed 3 dram – 1-1/8 ounces of shot. With a shot size of 7-1/2 or smaller ( 7-1/2, 8 or 9) Shotgun shells of more power will increase the shot fall zone to dangerous limits.

    Due to safety issues: Numbers of loaded shells must coincide with number of clays to be shot at a sequence (i.e. single clay=single shell; double clay=2 shells) with a maximum of three = double plus single.

    Course of Fire: A choice of 25 single birds or 12 pairs of double birds per round

    Fee: $5.00 per single or double round, please bring cash and correct change
    Ammunition is to be provided by the shooter.Shooter’s responsibility to the club: Try to help set up and take down the trap machines. Shooters will be responsible for the policing of all spent shotgun shells. Shooters should bring water or something to drink as well as a lunch if desired, also bring lawn chairs .
