Shoot Schedule



Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. No two five-stands are exactly alike. There are five "stands" or stations to shoot from. There are usually somewhere between 6 and 8 traps that throw targets. Participants shoot in turn at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown from the traps. Usually there is a menu card that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets. Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays like experience in a small amount of space, with very little walking.

There are 3 levels of difficulty:
Level I : 5 single targets with full use of the gun for scoring;
Level II : 3 single and a simultaneous pair;
Level III : 1 single and 2 simultaneous pairs.

Shooters (squad of five) can move from station to station with a predetermined menu of shots and combinations, or in a sequence unknown to the shooters.

Firearms: The typical gun for 5-stand is a 12-gauge with the choke of your choice (SK-IC-MOD) and a barrel 26-32 inches long. Although many shooters favor over/under shotguns, pump and autoloading shotguns are also common.

Ammunition: The shotshells used in 5-Stand may vary slightly with shooters preference and wind conditions. The standard load contains 3 drams equivalent of powder and 1 1/8 ounces of # 71/2, 8 or 81/2, 9 shot. Loads with only 1 ounce of shot are also popular.
