WELCOME TO TCGC CLAYBREAKERS
Tri-City Gun Club has 2 skeet fields and 2 trap fields both of which are lighted. Skeet fields are NSSA certified and the trap fields are ATA certified. Both fields have a covered patio, gun racks, and several comfortable chairs to lounge in. There is a covered hand thrower area which has 2 club owned throwers. Feel free to bring your own thrower to this area. For youth shooters and those new to the sport we highly recommend using the pvc shooting stands that are located at the hand thrower area. This helps with muzzle control. Those of you who shoot solo and would like to use your auto pullers at the skeet fields are welcome to do so. However, you are very close to the Long Range, thus the rifle fire will pull your targets for you.
The stat house has a couple of videos by Todd Bender and Dan Carlisle. I recommend taking a few minutes to sit and watch before shooting. Please do not remove videos from the stat house.
A few things to remember:
Lighted Fields open 15 Minutes after sunrise till 10pm. Lights go off at 10:15.
I. Sign In and record key/card #. Fill out waivers and sign in guests. Your key, you’re responsible!!!!
II. Be courteous, safe, respectful of people and property, and have fun.
III. Pick up your shells and empty buckets in blue dumpster.
IV. Turn OFF and DECOCK all machines when reloading. This may be the most important Rule of all. FIRE SAFE THROWERS. THEY ARE BONE CRUSHERS. SERIOUSLY!!
V. Refill machines (skeet only) to 1/2 way mark with Solid Orange Targets. (white targets are usually for night) No clays available to Manual Throwers.
VI. CORD SHOULD BE STORED ON HANGERS IN 3 foot LOOPS. No kinks or twist. Picture shown below. Cord wound tightly will destroy inner wires and interfere with your game. (cord broken, field closed, NO game.)
VII. FLATTEN All Clay Target boxes and Shell boxes and put in Blue Dumpster. No Shell/Target boxes in Patio Trash.
VIII. Clean/Sweep/Vacuum Skeet houses/Trap Bunkers and secure properly.

The latest addition to the TCGC shooting sports is nearing completion. We have had great success in achieving a working 5-Stand setup this year and everyone who has participated absolutely loves it. The most common word used to describe it is "humbling". We are very proud of the setup, as it is quite challenging. If your looking to brush up on your wing shooting, come on out and give it a try! No gun, No problem. Pick up a couple of boxes of 12g shells and join in.
Check the calendar often for scheduled shoots. Call, text, or email Tara (405.664.6549 or email@example.com) if you would like to be added to the text group. Due to changing seasons and holidays we may decide last minute to have an event.
Special Events-Let us know if you would like to have a 5-Stand event for your office, family reunion, church group, or team building. It would require a minimum of 50 rounds. example: 20 shooters x 3 rounds ea=60 rounds.
Recommended shells are 1oz or 1 1/8oz with #7.5 or #8 shot. Recommended chokes are IC, M, IM. If you really want to challenge yourself use full chokes.
“Clay targets aren’t hard to hit, just easy to miss.”
Open to members and their guests. Every Monday Night @ 6PM (Later in summer) Fees are listed above. This is a great place to start if you are new to clay target shooting. Or just come out and visit with the group. They can answer questions from what type of shotgun, best ammo, how to play, and learning the fundamentals of clay target shooting. Join us for fellowship and trap!

SHOOTERS PAY ATTENTION!!! We have noticed a lot of shot damage to the exterior of the high and low houses. This damage is the result of being shot at. There is NEVER a reason to have a gun pointed at the house, let alone firing into it.
Shooting clays before they leave the house is not permissible. Please STOP.
Help us keep the fees for shooting skeet and trap at a minimum. Houses, machines, and necessary equipment to operate the fields are not cheap. Damage due to negligence can result in range closures for repair time and increased fees to cover repairs and maintenance cost.
