Journeys Outside DC – Trap and Skeet Shooting in PG County

IMG_0966

It’s funny, as one who was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Long Island folks are always surprised that I love to shoot. I grew up going to summer camp in New Hampshire where I became addicted to target shooting (and hiking). Anyway, over the past few years I’ve been a semi-regular at Prince George’s Trap and Skeet located at 10400 Good Luck Road in Glenn Dale, MD. Since I sold my car I took a quick 15 minute metro ride up to College Park and a friend picked me up at the station, five more minutes by car and we were at the range.

Trap shooting reminds me a lot of golf. You are competing with your friends but also really competing with your self. Each ticket costs $5.50 and you get 25 shots at a clay target. After every five rounds you rotate a spot. You simply say “pull” and a target is launched. After everyone has shot five times you move one position over.

If you don’t own your own shotgun you can rent one at the range for $8 and it costs $7 for a box of 25 shotgun shells. It’s a ton of fun, but be careful it’s very addictive! You can find more info including directions on their Web site here.
