At Pitcairn-Monroeville we have some of the best trap facilities in the area. We have 4 working traps. Traps 3 and 4 are available to the members for practice any time after an orientation. Orientation is at 9:00 when we set up on the first Saturday of the month. Please contact me at email@example.com if you want an orientation. Orientation requires shooting one round of trap.
Trap practice is at 10:00 Saturday mornings where we have a good turnout. Practice is held year-round weather permitting (25 degrees and rising and no pouring rain). It is open to the public and we have had shooters from as far away as Columbia as well as shooters from Pitt and Carnegie-Mellon. We welcome beginners and do have guns and ammunition available if you want to try it. It is more fun than punching paper. We have both men and women shooters. If you have a shotgun, bring it out to try. The choke should be Modified or Full. If you don’t know, bring what you have, and we will help you. Shotgun shells for trap should be 7.5 or 8 shot. Trap costs $4.00 per round of 25 and shells are $7.50 per 25 at the club (Usually less at a store). Don’t buy a gun before you try trap if you don’t have one. I or someone will let you use one if you have factory 12 gage target shells. After you try guns and see what you like and what works you can buy one. Come out Saturdays and try it. I did that 40 years ago and am still doing it.
I would like to recognize the people that help keep the trap program going. Walt Ketchel, and Vince Delcorso cut the grass and keep the trap ranges looking good and help in many ways. Paul Bauer and I try to keep the equipment in order and run the practice and league. Several of us and others are there on Saturdays to practice and work with shooters. We can always use more help. Trap 2 is a wobble trap which can have targets that vary up and down as well as side to side. We often open two traps for practice: We shoot mostly 16 yard and, also wobble and handicap.
Problems and Questions
If you have trouble with one of the traps or have questions about trap, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul Bauer email@example.com
