Five Stand is a clay target sport in which a participant uses a shotgun to break clay targets out of the air. It can be described as a mixture of Trap and Sporting Clays.
A Five Stand Field has five shooting positions (like Trap) and many clay throwers with multiple target presentations (like sporting clays). A round of Five Stand consists of five targets at each of the five shooting positions. You will get an opportunity at 25 targets throughout a complete round of Five Stand.
One round of Five Stand is $5.
Most people use an Over Under, Semi-Automatic, or Pump action shotgun. The firearm must be able to hold 2 shells at a time.
Please bring hearing and eye protection, and chokes if your shotgun has removable chokes (Skeet or IC choke is recommended). The ammunition that you bring must be 2-3/4″ target ammunition. #7.5 , #8 , or #9 shot. 1-1/8 oz max or 3-1/4 dram max.
Five Stand is held periodically at Otter Valley Rod & Gun Club. Please watch the online calendar for Five Stand dates.
