Trap at PMSC

At Pitcairn-Monroeville we have some of the best trap facilities in the area.  We have 5 working traps.  Traps 4 and 5 are available to the members for practice any time after an orientation.  Orientation is at 9:15 on the first Saturday of the month. Please contact me at if you plan to come to orientation.

Trap practice is at 10:00 Saturday mornings where we have a good turnout.  Practice is held year-round weather permitting (25 degrees and rising and no pouring rain). It is open to the public and we have had shooters from as far away as Columbia as well as shooters from Pitt and Carnegie-Mellon.  We welcome beginners and do have guns and ammunition available if you want to try it.  It is more fun than punching paper. We have both men and women shooters.  If you have a shotgun, bring it out to try.  The choke should be Modified or Full.  If you don’t know, bring what you have and we will help you.  Shotgun shells for trap should be 7.5 or 8 shot.  Trap costs $3.50 per round of 25 and shells are $7.50 per 25 at the club(Usually less at a store).  Don’t buy a gun before you try trap if you don’t have one.  I or someone will let you use one.  Come out Saturdays and try it.  I did that 40 years ago and am still doing it.

I would like to recognize the people that help keep the trap program going.  Darrell Packer, Walt Ketchel, and Tom Morrissey cut the grass and keep the trap ranges looking good and help in many ways. Rick Singer and I try to keep the equipment in order.  Several of us and others are there on Saturdays to practice and work with shooters.  We can always use more help.  We are installing a wobble trap shortly which will have targets that vary up and down as well as side to side.  I would like to open two traps for practice:  16 yard and wobble, beginner or handicap.  Come out Saturday and let us know which you would prefer.

Problems and Questions
If you have trouble with one of the traps or have questions about trap, please email me at or Rick Singer at

Scout Camporee

On Saturday, August 12th we will host BSA Troop 90 for a shooting activity day. We will start at 8 am thru 4pm, at Combo Building. Activities will be 22 rifle, Trap, archery, WW2 Reinactors, pistol for Explorer crew, and one or two other activities. We can use some help and this serves as a work part credit. You need a child clearance and how to get one is posted on our web site. There will be certified instructors at shooting sites. We will not close any ranges but ask that members be aware we will have 60+ Scouts and parents camping on our grounds that weekend.

Skeet Practice schedule change

Skeet practice has been moved from Thursday evenings to Saturday mornings at 10am (same time as trap practice). Of course, members are still free to shoot skeet whenever they like after having the skeet orientation. Saturday morning skeet will continue to be open to the public, just as Thursday evening skeet was.

Winter Trap

Trap practice continues through the winter. Practice will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday with the exception of December 24, 2016 and when the temperature is below 25° or steady rain is falling. For those practicing trap on their own, the trap machines require time to warm up prior to use. Depending on the temperature, this can be 15 to 30 minutes before they work properly.

Trap orientations will still be available. Please contact if interested.
