Clay pigeon shooting, also known as clay target shooting, and formally known as Inanimate Bird Shooting, is the art of shooting a firearm at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets.The terminology commonly used by clay shooting often relates to times past when live-pigeon competitions were held.Although such competitions were made illegal in the UK in 1921, a target may still be called a “bird”, a hit may be referred to as a “kill”, and a missed target as a “bird away”; the machine which projects the targets is still known as a “trap”.
The game can now be played in Melbourne using laser guns which don’t fire live bullets. It’s great fun for team building, bux parties. It can be run at a park, back yard or off a boat.
