SPORTING SHOTGUN

The Prince Georges Trap and Skeet center reopened for shooting on July 1st but with significant changes to their operations. Please call the range office at 301-577-7178 for the latest information.  The information below is correct as of 11/17/20. 

Social distancing and masks are required in the clubhouse and anywhere that social distancing is not being maintained.

You are required to go to the clubhouse for a temperature check before going to the ranges. Use the walkway on the range side of the building to enter the office and the door on the other side of the building to exit after the temperature check.

A range attendant must push the button to turn on the range microphones for trap and must be a puller for skeet. Only range staff are permitted to touch any range equipment. You must visit the range office to get a range person assigned for skeet.

Only credit and debit cards will be accepted for payment in the range office.  Ammunition will be available for sale but other items might not.

There will not be any gun rentals, golf cart rentals or shooting lessons.

New shooters will not be permitted on the range - only experienced shooters.

The ranges will close at 5 PM every day. There will not be late hours on Tuesday - Thursday.

Sporting Clays will be available but will be much different than it has been. If you want to shoot sporting clays, you need to call or stop by the office first to find out about all of the changes.  You must call in advance for a reservation.  The range phone number is 301-577-7178. 

There are no food, water, coffee, tables or chairs available at the range. If you want such things, you need to bring your own.

There is a one way path into and out of the range office.

Additional Information

New Trap Shooter Orientation: We have enough shooters coming out that we cannot do new shooter orientations  or deal with shotgun function problems during the scheduled shoots. Please contact  the Sporting Shotgun Chair below to schedule an orientation session first if you are new to shotgun or trap shooting.

Inclement Weather Policy: The Sporting Shotgun Chair will cancel a Tuesday morning shoot if the Prince Georges county schools are closed because of hazardous driving conditions or if the wind chill is dangerously low. He will try to hold the shoot if the schools are opening late. If in doubt, call the Sporting Shotgun Chair between 9 and 9:45 a.m. at 301-464-8580.
