What are Doubles?

Doubles is shot at 16 yards. The obvious difference here is that 2 targets emerge from the trap house at once upon the shooter’s call. The main difference otherwise is that, unlike singles, the doubles targets fly at unchanging angles (the machine does not oscillate as it does in singles).

The shooters shoot one shot at each target attempting to break both. It is permissible within the rules to shoot at the same target twice though this is not good practice for becoming a smooth and effective doubles trap shooter.

A round is 25 attempts at 50 targets from the 16 yard line. (you will need 50 shells per round)
