    What does a case of white flyer targets cost nowadays? My local club is going to charge 7 dollars per practice round. That would make a case of targets around 34 dollars a case if I did my math right.

    $7.00 a round sounds about right for a professionally operated and maintained gun club. Start a basic range with donated land, manual traps, all volunteer labor, etc. and you can really cut back on the price of a round. Ron

    pjbosh ... in your math ... did you figure in insurance, taxes, electricity, water, gas, repairs and other maintenance costs?

    I am thankful that I belong to a club that is all volunteer. in upstate NY, the general cost for a round is 3.00 per round. A couple even less, a couple a bit more.

    That maybe going up. White Flyer had a fire at their plant last month. They will be at 25% capacity thru the summer. May see a shortage this year. Dave T.

    We were told 20% plus increase - and don't try to order any White Flyer pitch targets - they can't get pitch.

    I think we're at 11.86 or something for the last pitch targets we're able to get.

    pjbosh - are your pullers paid? - add that cost into Ahab's list. Groundskeeper?

    Our price has been $3.00 per round and will stay at $3.00 per round. We went to Bios and everyone loves them. The cost of Bios went up also and there is no pitch in the Bios, we were told it was the oil used in the paint but the paint is water born. So go figure.

    We can discuss what each club charges and the cost of targets until the sun goes down.

    Every club is different.

    One club may pay $2000 in property taxes each year and another $15,000.

    One club may have mimimum insurance and another may have $1,000,000 policy and cover club officers.

    Paid help or volunteers.

    Fuel cost to run lawn mowers and what have you.

    A $250 lawnmower or $3000 machine?

    Snow removal.

    Clay target shooting supporting the rife range or youth shooting?

    $30 dues or $250 dues.

    50 members or 700 members.

    Three fields or 15 fields.

    Open two days a week or five.

    Number of shooters active each week? Two rounds a week shooters or serious shooters...

    And, on an on!

    The bottom line, at member run clubs, attend meetings and see what it cost to run a club.

    The fixxed costs at a club should be paid for with the members dues. This will keep the cost of a round of trap between $2.00 and $3.00. HMB

    Where is the pitch supplier that had a fire at it's plant?? There are 3 white flyer manufacturing sites in the U.S.. This problem didn't seem to affect Lawrey at all.

    Depends where you're at. Ours was 10.30 and I believe it's higher now.

    A few weeks ago we ordered a full load of White Flyers at $9.65 per case, full trailer truckload. Close to plant and delivering first week of May. Price has definately gone up and so has delivery time. (Last full truck load we bought was $7.75/case.) Our shoot costs will have to increase slightly due to the much bigger target cost after May.

    To HMB: FYI... Our club is more than just shotgun, we have a lot of rifle, cowboy action, pistol, and archery shooters/ranges, too. Therefore the member dues aren't just geered to shotgun shooters and their clay targets, plus the dues were set before the cost of clay targets increased.

    What about when the plant is in fulll gear again. Will the price go back. I doubt it. Seems if you was going to start a new business such as the manufacture of claybirds that you would have to come up with all the money your self. Since you don't already have customers to overcharge to pay for you business equipment.But if you already have a customer base all you just need to do is raise price to let the shooter pay for it so as not to use your own profits.
    I was think about starting a minimart and start charging the customers first untill i have enough money to build the building and stock the store with all the food and fill the tanks in the ground with gas.Then if I am lucky part of the place will burn down so I can collect insurance to rebuild. Plus charge the customes more with the excuse that my part of my business burnt and need to repay for the loss and rebuild first. Pocket the insurance money.
    The only thing that is going on is the business is still making up cost for nonproduction while your rebuilding. Wild Bill

    Trapgeek, I said the fixxed costs should be paid with member dues. The cost of targets is a different expense and should be reflected in the price charged per round of trap, skeet, or sporting clays. HMB
