Trapshooting is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shooting shotguns at clay targets). The other disciplines are skeet shooting and sporting clays. In trap shooting, the targets are launched from a single "house" or machine, generally away from the shooter.

3 Gun

Competitors use three different firearms — a modern sporting rifle (AR-platform); a pistol; and a shotgun. Matches involve courses where the shooter moves through different stages and engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage requires the use of different firearms.


IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated real world self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.
