Manual Machines offer a great way to introduce people to clay bird shooting, easy repeatable targets get new or “rusty” shooters on track. Its also a great way for friends and family to enjoy a more laid back, less structured day of clay shooting.
We have fifteen manual trap ("hand trap") cages designed to let groups of two or more guests shoot their shotguns at clay pigeons purchased from Alpine Range.
The only cost for using our equipment is the price paid for the boxes of the targets (clay pigeons).
As of January 2023, the cost of a box of 135 clay pigeons is $41.99 plus tax.
In addition to the standard firearm safety rules, the rules for using our equipment are as follows:
Only Alpine purchased targets can be used here.
Only 7 1/2, 8 or 9 shot sizes may be used.
If you are unsure of your ammo, please bring it in to be checked.
