I generally figure 10 bucks total. 5 for the birds and 5 for the shells.

In Florida, most rounds of trap and skeet run ~$6 for members, and ~$8-9 for non-members.
Sporting clays tend to run ~$0.38 for members and ~ $0.48 for non-members. Golf cart rentals usually run ~$20; split 4 ways makes it more affordable.

Sheesh!

Glad I live on the West coast. Trap is expensive enough.......

Heck the non-member rate at one club I go to is 4.50 for the birds. My own club is 4.50 and the boys are good at keeping true wholesale priced reloading components in stock. Really helps that one of our guys has a one ton pickup and goes right by the shot tower in the course of his work. Hard to beat free transport of lead.

Support your local club! I save more on components than what my membership costs. Of course my bride reminds me I would not need those components if it weren't for the club I belong to. And so it goes.....

We pay no hazmat or shipping on reloading supplies as the club buys targets by the truckload and they just put the other stuff on the same truck.

In Southern California I pay $8/round of skeet or trap and that is if I buy tokens for 20 rounds at a time. That is for the local kind of run down range.

In Austin, TX it's $11 for a round of trap or skeet for non members and $7 for members. $6.30 a round if you buy a preloaded key. They give you 27 birds for trap and 26 for skeet, in case of no-birds or noise activated pulls in trap.
Five stand and sporting clays is by the bird. $.50/target non member and $.40/target for members. I usually just shoot trap and skeet so I don't know if the sporting clays course has a preloaded key deal.
They sell ammo, but I always shoot reloads so I don't know the price.
They don't rent shotguns.

I was paying $4.00 a round for trap before headed to the land of the rising sun where there is no shooting to be had.

Possibly in mainland, but the trap/skeet range in Okinawa was shut down in the 90's due to environmental issues.

The SISC has a cook and an active kitchen on premise cooking and served Italian food.
His lasagna is marvelous as are the other offerings

Thanks for the input. I come back once a year to catch up. Had some serious issues and my shooting was curtailed.

A trap field only requires one machine to throw the birds and has a very limited shotfall area.
Sporting clays demands a lot of traps to throw birds and a lot of real estate for the shot to fall onto. That's the main reason it costs more to shoot.
