Ed,
I am going to East Lyme on Sunday (coming from Boston area) and interested to shoot a few rounds of trap at HGC. Is it possible to do that?

I emailed the club and was told that the club is not open to public and I need to be a guest of a member of the club.
thanks

James.

xp220, I'd offer to let you be my guest at HGC since I'm a member there but I'll be shooting the Massachusetts State Shoot on Sunday. Other clubs in Connecticut that shoot on Sunday that are open to the public is Wolcott Land Owners Association - also we throw black rim targets at Wolcott (I belong to that club), starting at 9-10 am. I think Bristol Fish and Game (I'm also a member there) might let public shooters shoot on a Sunday as well I'm not 100% on that though. Just some suggestions.

As always, here's a gun club trying to help out shooters, and get their club some exposure, then the trap shooters that don't qualify to their generosity show up asking to extend the exemptions.

Ed,

Thanks for the info. I will look around the club you suggested. I want to try to shoot there just because I am thinking to shot CTA state this year.

What is your point about “don’t qualify” and “exemption”?

I am an ATA member, just moved out of CT too. I was not a trap shooter before and became one recently. I want to try different fields and condition, and meet people. Many clubs open to public for traps just to expand the discipline. What is wrong to ask?

It's definitely worth shooting the Connecticut State Shoot each year the back round is great the birds that are thrown are great the shoot is run very smooth. This year they will be throwing black rim targets at the Connecticut State Shoot. Definitely worth attending you won't be disappointed.

If you read Ed's opening comments correctly all you have to do is present your membership card, be it ATA ,NSSA or NSCA and you will be allowed to shoot. You don't need a member to shoot with you just prove that you belong to one of these organizations and you will be allowed to shoot at member rates.

Thanks for everyone’s responses. I am alright now.

If you are Metro North Boston area, you are welcome to be my guest in the clubs I belonged to for a few rounds trap shooting. Many other clubs I go to is also opened to public (for trap).

Get them all!
