The first question most new comers have is "How much does this Sport cost"? Following is a breakdown of shooting expenses.
Annual : Membership - Adult $75 - Senior $50 - Junior $25- Membership includes liability insurance, reduced cost for birds and ammo, unlimited use of club guns, purchase of reloading components at cost and of course a safe and organized shotgun shooting range. Ammo is available for purchase at the club and club shotguns are also on hand for use.
Recurring : Ammo :$8 box of 25 shells for members - $9 - non-members
Clays : $6 per round of 25 for members - $7 - non-members
Note : Non members must pay a daily fee of $5 per visit for insurance purposes
The average recreational shooter will shoot 2 rounds per week. Our club is open year round so the cost to shoot for 50 weeks would be $1400 ( 8+8= 16 for shells and 12 for birds ) Very comparable to Golf or other Sports which are seasonal. The next question is "What do I need to start" Generally people use a 12 ga. or 20 ga. for most of the shotgun sports. Each has it's own advantages too numerous to mention here but info can be found online comparing the two. Many people use whichever gun that they use for hunting as shooting clay targets is a great way to prepare for hunting season. As most clay games require a fast second shot, pumps, semi auto's, and over/unders are the most common. Safety gear is very important. A good pair of tinted shooting glasses can be had from $25 as well as ear muffs or plugs starting at $15. A shell pouch or bag, that hangs on your belt is handy and can be bought starting at $15. Many shooters use a vest or jacket and some kind of shooting glove. These are not essential and can be added later. One more important element is to take the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and acquire a PAL. This is essential to own a firearm or purchase ammo. More info at:
Reloading: With the relative low cost of new promo shells these days, many question the savings that reloading may offer. We are fortunate at our club as one of our members supplies us with home made lead shot at 1/2 the price of other brands. Here are some examples assuming that the hulls are free:
12ga. 1 1/8 oz. $6.40 or $8.60 with Hummason shot
12 ga. 1oz. $6.15
12ga. or 20ga. 7/8oz. 5.92
28ga. 3/4oz. 5.70
.410 Bore 1/2oz. 5.20
