    Out of curiosity, how many Olympic Trap facilities are located in the good ole USA?

    bkt514...

    Where are you located? The list referenced above is fairly complete but there are others.

    If I counted correctly there are 34 active facilities in the USA and Canada.

    You can add a 35th club to the list - the Livermore Rod & Gun Club in Livermore, CA has a brand new bunker now throwing targets.

    The number of facilities needs to double but alas I'm $3,499,000 short of the $3.5m necessary for construction and equipment. :)

    The construction of bunker number 36 was started this morning at Pikes Peak Gun Club in Colorado Springs, CO. Hopefully we will be shooting by mid summer. I will be starting another thread to keep bunker shooters updated on our progress.

    I really haven't kept my file up, but I believe there are now over 65 bunker venues in the US. Many are private or completely inactive. There are a few multi-bunker set-ups, as Tucson(5), Kerrville(5), Colorado Springs(4) and Prince Edward County(2).

    There are a few potential re-setups, as Prado Tiro (3)and the NSSA home grounds (2 or 3), plus perhaps one in South Carolina that was used for training prior to the 96 Olympics, that only need machines, the shells are still there.

    As you can see above, new bunkers are continuing to be added. Alan Chubb and Livermore GC are opening in May.
