Marty Fischer is a good man and a great source. He's worked on several ranges in the East Tennessee area.You might also contact National Sporting Clays Association for a list of instructors in your area. Lots of those folks are more than capable of designing a range. Also NRA range development guide and resource manual would be a good place to start.At my club we designed and built a nice 5-stand without anyone having done it before and we made a few mistakes in that we didn't make things are big as they should have been.BTW: This isn't a one person job get help from other shotgunners in the club.Good Luck and Good ShootingTanasi:w

Why don't people pay ME to help them create sporting clays courses? That's a job I could really get into. Maybe I could become a sporting clays course critic. I'd travel the country, trying different courses, and rating them in some newspaper column or maybe on a small cable show. You think there's money in that? I'd sure like the work! :p Casual ShooterOne gun does it all when one gun is all you have!

IainGT, sounds like a great time to head out to some local and not so local clays ranges to check out their 5-stand setups. Grab the digital camera and pick which shot setups will work for you. Depending on what level of shooters you have, this shouldn't be a combination of all tough shots to start with, if the average shooter feels like its beyond them they wont shoot it again. Which considering the cost of the 5 traps and the release system you want as many folks shooting it as you can.
