Sporting clays are the big thing here in NC. You get a lot of shots for a round but it is expensive. Most clubs charge visitors $50 for a half round and $100 for a full round. The guest fees make it difficult to visit other clubs. Memberships are reasonable $300 to $500 per year. Members can shoot a full round for $20. But most people prefer to shoot a few times to see if they fit in. It's a vicious circle finding a club you want to join.

I've never competed in skeet or trap before but I'm going to in October.

Zoweeee, that is steep. My local club costs $50 for an annual family membership, then $12 for a round of sporting clays. Oh, don't forget to tip the "guide".

Non-members pay $14 per round.

Rifle, handgun, skeet range is $10 for a day for non-members.

That's completely ridiculous/retarded......

The last registered sporting shoot I did here in New York was $45 for 100 birds, but that was youth pricing. Standard admission was $90...but you got lunch and there were awards/prizes and all that jazz.

When I go there to practice it is $15 standard price to shoot 100 birds...

Member dues are $100 a year and each year we elect members to the board...Pres, vice Pres, treasurer, seargent at arms etc. etc.

Members get about a 25% discount and become part owners of the land the club rests on.

some clubs ive been to require a 3 year waiting list and a 1500.00 membership, plus initation fee.
what gets me is...youd think getting into a club with that status, the shooting would be better...nope. 40,000 shotguns and they all still cant shoot a straight game.
