Sporting shooting is the simulation of shooting live birds with a clay pigeon being used instead. Sporting Clays are by far the most popular form of shooting in the United Kingdom.
Large and small clay clubs run sporting shooting, simulating the flight of pigeons, ducks, magpies, pheasants, partridges and grouse.
A shooter that masters sporting shooting can tackle almost any type of clay pigeon thrown because of the variety of targets used at these events.
Most of the top shots in the country have learnt their skills at sporting shooting events, and even competed in the Olympics shooting the more formal disciplines of trap and skeet.
A sporting shooter is a great all rounder that can master almost any type of clay target thrown by a shooting ground owner offering sporting shooting. Speeds, angles, terrain and different target types are used along with other tricks to deceive the shooter from hitting the targets thrown.
