Skeet Shooting at the Greenville Gun Club!

skeet

Skeet Shooting is a shotgun shooting sport where a clay target is released from one of two skeet houses, either low house or high house, and both houses. The targets fly left to right and right to left. The target flight, speed, size, and trajectory all stay the same in skeet and instead the shooter moves to 8 stations on a skeet field. Skeet squad size can vary from 2 up to 5 or 6. It can be greater than 6 only when all other shooters agree to the size.

The Greenville Gun Club uses a token system. Tokens may be purchased in the clubhouse for $2.50 / round in increments of $5, $10, and $20 purchases. Tokens may be redeemed by dropping them into to coin box posted at each skeet field. Each token provides 25 targets and 1 target as a “see-one” for the first shooter. Additional extra targets are also provided in case a target may break when leaving the skeet house. Please do not shoot extra targets at the end of the round; as unused extra rounds help offset the times where we have breakage.

For skeet practice, each field is equipped with a wireless “pickle”. The “pickle” is used to launch a target from the appropriate skeet machines and is typically handed off to each non-shooter, as the squad cycles through the firing positions. Under no circumstances is it permissible to use your foot to press the “pickle” buttons; you will be asked to leave the club and may lose your GGC membership if you are found doing this.

Periodically, the Greenville Gun Club hosts 1 and multi-day NSSA registered skeet shoots. These shoots will be scheduled and are found on the Events page. This shoot is open to any NSSA registered individual – whether GGC member or not. You can join the NSSA during the first shooting competition at the club. Registered NSSA shoots may consist of the use of several gauges (12, 20, 28, and .410 shotshell). The NSSA Skeet program is subject to change and is controlled by the Director of Skeet. Please consult this Director for additional information regarding tournament fees, prizes, and other rules typically stated on his program.

All NSSA and GGC rules are in effect during tournaments. Only NSSA tournament officials may stop shooting during an NSSA tournament.

If you have questions, please contact the Skeet Director.
