            In American Trap disciplines (ATA), standard targets are thrown as singles. The horizontal target is a random target with a maximum angle of 22 degrees measured in line from the trap to the middle station.  A distance of  at 50 yards is required. The height at which the target is thrown should remain consistent.   A squad of five shooters shoot in rotation from the five stations (laid out in the form of an arc)  located 16 yards behind the trap house. 5 targets are thrown at each station, after which the shooters move to their right to the next station.  A round is 25 targets with one shot allowed at each target.
            DTL (Down-the-line) is an English variation of ATA where two shots are allowed at a single target with a scoring penalty for a second-barrel hit.
