View Full Version : Recommended Trap Instructor in So Cal

05-13-2012, 10:44 PM
I have a buddy in So Cal that needs some trap lessons after about a year of shooting trap and only one lesson. Most instructors seem to teach skeet or sporting clays. Can anyone recommend a trap instructor in So Ca. He shoots at Triple-B, Prado, and Redlands. Can you give me an idea what he should expect to pay?

I don't have a specific instructor for you but I can offer some information.

Clay shooting is a crossover skill. There are many sporting clay targets that are just Trap targets and are broken in the same way.

Sounds like your friend is in need of an instructor that will identify his/her bad habits and correct them. I am assuming that after a year of shooting Trap he/ she knows how to break each target presention on a Trap range...but just can't do it.

Any good coach can do this person a ton of good .....no need to be a Trap
instructor at this point as they will all start with fundamental shotgun skills.

Hope this sheds some light for your friend

Also.....you can not beat this deal at Triple B

OakTree has a very serious trap program so maybe give them a call. Also TBC has a bunch of instructors, I'm sure any of them can teach trap.

I've shot SC with Don Jackson, and he's a cool guy - he does Sporting, but also does trap and skeet - I have his card somewhere but:


If he's over at Redlands, have him check the board in the clubroom - also, if you and he are down, drop by the next Tri County Trap Club shoot in June: there's alot of experienced shooters that would be more than glad to help; can't recall who might be an instructor, but all of them are always glad to share tips and stories ;)
