Rifle Practice with Trap-thrown Balls

A much cheaper way to practice rifle shooting as far as its first cost is concerned and to my way of thinking one that is far more exciting is to shoot at balls which are thrown into the air from a trap like the one shown in Fig. 53.

This trap is made by the Chamberlain Cartridge and Target Company and costs $3.50, and as far as I know it is the only rifle ball trap on the market. It is worked by two powerful springs (see Fig. 53), and it throws a 1-inch solid ball, or a 2-inch hollow ball into the air a distance of from 40 to 60 yards at a height of from 10 to 12 feet at 10 yards from the trap, which is the distance and elevation prescribed by the standard trap-shooting rules. These balls are made of a composition of clay and pitch.

It is better for a beginner to practice shooting at the hollow balls just because they are larger and these come packed 500 in a barrel and they cost $4.00 per barrel. Later on the solid balls can be used, and these cost $9.75 per barrel of 1,500. When you can break 10 solid balls out of 10 shots with a .22-caliber rifle you are ready to get in with the regular fellows and shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun.
