Shotgun permits the use of any smoothbore shotgun up to 12-gauge to shoot clay targets. The discipline includes four main competitions. Sporting clays is usually held in a bush setting, with competitors shooting from six or seven stands and traps throwing targets to simulate hunting. 5-stand has five stands separated by a couple of metres each, with traps throwing single or double targets in different directions. Low-field and high-field competitions are shot from pads level with or close to the trap house and the traps being above or below ground level.
