Down the Line or DTL as its commonly known is a very popular clay pigeon shooting discipline. It’s all about concentration and reaction time.

Targets are thrown from a trap that is situated 16 yards from where the shooter is, there a five different places where the shooter stands which gives a different angle on the target. The target is then thrown, up to a distance of 50 meters by a trap that oscillates from side to side in a 22 degree zone.

Targets are shot in blocks of 25, each single target can be shot with either barrel and points are awarded for each shot. 3 Points for a first barrel hit, 2 points for a second barrel hit and 0 points for missing. Each is marked out of 300.
