Dynamic and Challenging Shooting Skills
Five Stand is a type of shotgun sport shooting to sporting clays, trap and skeet. There are five stations, or stands and ten strategically placed clay target throwers (called traps). Shooters shoot in turn at various combinations of clay birds. Each station will have a menu card that lets the shooter know the sequence of clay birds he or she will be shooting at (i.e. which trap the clay bird will be coming from).
Typical five stand targets are called rabbits, chandelle, overhead, standard skeet high house and low house shots, teal (launched straight up into the air), and an incoming bird. Five stand increases your gun mounting ability, target acquisition swing through lead, pull away lead and your constant or maintained lead.
Five stand is fun for any shooter, new or experienced.
