    My daughter has been to some in Italy and she said every one she was at had such a layout. She was at four different ones. She also said she thought there were about 35 clubs in Italy.

    Good Luck

    Say you didn't have the room to excavate, is there any type of a fabric backstop/ background that could be installed and used to catch shot?
    I am limited on space but would like to install a trap field. Any thoughts or ideas?

    Roofer - Yes, there is fabric. That's the easy part. Wind is the deal killer tho.

    A bit off topic, but Google maps showing locations of shooting ranges in europe.
