The sportive facility at Benton Sporting Clays proffers clays, ammo, and carts to buttress a variety of projectile pastimes. Across the open fields of the range, shot-slingers scoot among the 15 automated shooting stations from the comfort of their carts as a tournament-grade tower hurls pigeon golems into the stratosphere with sportsmanlike flair. Standing marksmen take aim in a fully covered five-stand pillbox, which keeps rain, sunlight, and real pigeons from sabotaging trigger pulls and Duck Hunt –style lightning rounds. Patrons often supply their own weapons, though the shop rents out shotguns to the unequipped ($15/rental). With year-round membership, sportsfolk purchase clays at discounted rates, waive all fees for cart rentals, and learn the secret birdcalls of their kiln-baked prey.
