ISSF Trap (Olympic Trap)

The International Shooting Sport Federation, also known with the acronym ISSF, is the governing body of the Olympic Shooting events in rifle, pistol and shotgun (clay target) disciplines, and of several non-Olympic Shooting sport events.

A round of ISSF Trap (Olympic Trap) consists of 25 targets shot from five shooting stations set along a 15 metre line from the traphouse. Each shooting station has 3 traps set at pre-determined angles, 15 traps in all. Targets are voice-released and travel between 60 and 75 metres at an angle no greater than 45 degrees either side of centre at an average speed of 100km/h.

Competition shooting allows competitors two shots at each target. However in a competition final (shoot-off) only single barrel shooting is permitted.
