Down The Line
"The best way to learn in any sport is to just get out there and do it"

Down The LineThis is one of the most popular clay shooting disciplines Targets are thrown to a distance of 45 to 50 metres at a fixed height of approximately 2.75m and with a horizontal 'spread' of up to 22 degrees either side of the centre line. Each competitor shoots at a single target in turn, but without moving from the stand until they have shot five targets.

Then they all move one place to the right, and continue to do so until they have all completed a standard round of 25 targets. Scoring of each target is 3 points for a first barrel kill, 2 points for a second barrel kill and 0 for a miss (maximum 75 points per round). Variations of this discipline are: Single Barrel, Double Rise and Handicap-by-Distance.

Possibly the most popular entry level discipline and competitors often go on to the most exacting discipline of Olympic Trap.
