The Trap section of the Prince George Rod & Gun Club is affiliated with the Pacific International Trapshooting Association (PITA), and meets at the Hartman Range facility.

Our Pacific Automatic Trap machines are voice command operated. These PAT machines can be configured to throw standard clay targets as singles (fixed angle or standard oscillation) and doubles. Wobble delivery can add an extra challenge for the shooter. 12 gauge shotguns of any action type are used. “Trap load” shot shells (1145fps/max 1 1/8oz #71/2, 8 or 9 lead shot) are expected. Faster loads of 1350fps are allowed for (PITA) handicap distances. Some shooters test their skill with smaller (16, 20, 28 ga. or .410 bore) shotguns.

  • Hearing protection is mandatory per club rules.
  • Heavy field load or magnum shot shells are not permitted. This is not an opportunity to shoot off old boxes of #4 lead shot duck loads. The largest safe shot size is #6.
  • Body size matters! This is not an activity for young children, even with very close supervision.
  • PGRGC shooters pay a reduced, flat fee (2016 = $5.00) to cover the cost of each round of 25 clays shot at. We honour reciprocal club memberships.
  • Weather and daylight permitting, practice sessions are held on Sundays from 12:00 to 3:00 pm (starting when the snow is gone and ending when the snowy and/or cold weather returns, usually from late March until early November) and on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. (starting when there is enough daylight to shoot until 8:00 p.m. and ending when there isn't, usually from mid-May until mid-September)..
