Let's tackle the first part of that question - Clay target shooting is a fun and safe shotgun sport for the entire family. While there are several types of clay target games - skeet, trap, etc. - the Texas Ranger Classic is a Sporting Clays tournament. This is a clay target game designed to replicate every conceivable shot encountered in field shooting - such as flushing, crossing, incoming and other angling shots.
Courses are laid out in natural surroundings and typically include 10 shooting stations with shooters moving from one station to the next to complete the course. Each station presents shooters with a different type of shot. At any station, targets may be thrown as singles, simultaneous pairs, following pairs (one target right after the other), or report pairs (the second target launched at the sound of the gun being fired at the first).
Sporting clays is among the most popular of the shooting disciplines and is internationally recognized as a competitive sporting event. Sporting clays is commonly referred to as "golf with a shotgun". Just like golf, all sporting clays courses are different, always providing the shooter with a constant challenge.
