Clay Sports at SLOSA

Our shotgun range is a public venue dedicated to getting new people involved in shooting sports and keeping long time shooters coming back for more!
We have two Trap fields, one with a Skeet overlay, which also serves as our 5 Stand field. 
Trap is a game where the target flies away from you in one of five random directions.  Trap is a great way to be introduced to the clay sports and beginners are always welcome!
Skeet involves a more varied course, with targets flying from overhead, toward you, and crossing the field in front of you.  Many bird hunters like to keep sharp on the Skeet field, and the fast action will keep you moving!
New shooters are always welcome and friendly, experienced shooters are on hand to help you learn.  12 or 20 gauge guns are available , however ammo is not sold here so bring some along.  #7.5  or 8 shot is best for all around shooting.  We do have shotguns we can lend, a $5.00 cleaning fee applies for each gun loaned.
And don't forget Ladies & Students Night,  held on Thursday and Friday evenings from 3:00 to 8:00 pm.    Ladies and students with a current ID can shoot for member prices, and no cleaning fees on our loaner guns. 
We also have a big BBQ for your use, so bring along some dinner for after the shooting.
Eye and hearing protection is required at all times, for all shooters and spectators at the range, so please come prepared.

5 Stand at SLOSA

On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, we hold our 5 Stand event on our Skeet field.  If you have never shot 5 Stand, come on out and be ready for a challenging and exciting game.   Our 9 traps throw many different target presentations including overhead doubles from our Brant tower, confounding rabbit targets that roll and jump across the ground, high arching chondells, devilish minis and more. 

*Due to the extra equipment and higher costs of the different targets used, the cost for a round of 5 Stand is $2 higher than normal Trap or Skeet.

Please note that our 5 Stand events will be cancelled if its raining the day of the shoot, or if the chance of rain is 50% or higher 24 hours before the event.


 SLOSA Clay Sports goes Green!

We are proud to now be throwing White Flyer Bios as our primary targets.  These targets contain no harmful materials and will breakdown naturally in 2 years or less.


Have your next group event at our shotgun range!


We love to host groups of all kinds!  Birthday parties, bachelor parties, church groups, fraternities, sororities, business groups, or any group of 15 or more that wants to come and enjoy our range and shoot some Trap or Skeet. Our friendly Range Safety Officers will get your group shooting,  and we can lend 12 or 20 gauge guns.  Please note that no alcohol is permitted at the range.  If you contact us in advance, a group discount can be applied, and reservations can be made for Saturdays, Sundays or Mondays after 3PM.

Costs for a group event start at  $150.  A prepayment is required in advance, and will be applied to the day's costs.
 We don't sell ammo though, so bring along plenty of #7.5 or 8 shot shells in 12 or 20 gauge.
As always, our big BBQ is also available for your use!  Bring along some wood!
