Trap is the easiest clay sport...easiest to hit a target.
That is what makes it so hard for novices; it's so easy to hit a trap target that the novice tends to relax, lose concentration, and miss a couple of targets in a round. Oooops....no straight this time. And trap is won with straights, lots of them.
100x100's, 200x200's, 300x300's are relatively common because.....trap targets are easy. It's the concentration that's hard to maintain.

Pretty sure the record for a single round is 25.


And that’s exactly what I did my first time. Somehow it didn’t kill my desire to shoot.
(And I see what you did there.)

The thing that makes trap "hard" is that a good score has to be a straight or near-straight. Hitting trap targets is easy, hitting 25 in a row is hard because we tend to let down, or relax our concentration BECAUSE THEY ARE EASY TARGETS.
As you all know, hitting 23 or 24 is easy. Shooting straights are hard because we make it hard.

Who knows what the record for missed trap targets is. Nobody is keeping track. :mrgreen:

Friend of mine signed up for an ata 16 yard event. Hit the first 2 targets, missed the next 87, hit one, missed the rest.

We have a 5-Stand outing every year where everyone shoots one round of 25. I can't tell you how many people have missed all 25. But it's a lot.

I missed a lot when I tried bunker trap. Not sure how many in a row, but it must have been quite a few.

A few years ago I was shooting trap and the guy next to me missed 25 in a row. He looked to be in his 60's and had good equipment. It didn't seem to bother him at all.
