Skeet

Discipline for:  Shotgun

Revised:  2015

Kettlefoot Skeet is a recreational and competitive activity where participants attempt to break clay disks flung into the air at high speed from a variety of angles.  The firearm of choice is usually a high quality, double-barreled over and under shotgun with 25/26 inch barrels.  The use of clay targets replaced the more traditional target of live birds, as a cheaper, more humane and more reliable alternative, one reason they are also called “clay pigeons“.

In the United States, registered, formal competition is administered by the National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA).  A full tournament is typically conducted over the course of five events.  Each event normally constitutes a separate championship.  In addition, the scores in four singles events are combined to crown a High Over All (HOA) champion for the tournament:  a coveted title.  On occasion, the scores for all five events are also combined to determine the High All Around (HAA) champion.
