If you are shooting handicap, say 27 yard, does everyone on the field have to be shooting the same handicap? I can see how it'd be dangerous for someone to be back on the 27 and everyone else up at the 16, but how does it work? On that note, is handicap by choice or is it like golf where you get assigned a handicap if you shoot too well in registered shoots?

On the topic of Trap Doubles, are they always shot at the 16 yard line or do you have Trap Doubles Handicap from back at the 27?

When shooting registered ATA or PITA handicap events you can have up to 2 yards difference between shooters and no more than 3 yards difference within the squad.

Handicap shooting yardage starts at the 19 yard line for ladies and males under 16 years old; 20 yard line for males 16 and over. If you shoot well you get handicapped having to shoot further back.

The ATA did set up some rules for Handicap Doubles on a trial bases couple of years ago. It does not seem that it caught on.
