Skeet shooting is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay targets mechanically flung into the air from two fixed stations at high speed from a variety of angles.

- Skeet shooting

Skeet is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay shooting.

- Skeet shooting

Shotguns are also used for target-shooting sports such as skeet, trap and sporting clays, which involve flying clay disks, known as "clay pigeons", thrown in various ways by a dedicated launching device called a "trap".

- Shotgun

All three sports use a shotgun, and in the sporting disciplines are sub-classified by the type of game the clay target represents (pigeon, rabbit, etc.).

- Clay pigeon shooting

For clay competition, shot size must not exceed 2.6 mm/English No. 6. The shot load must be a maximum 28 g for all domestic disciplines; or 24 g for Olympic trap, Olympic skeet, and double trap; up to 28 g for FITASC sporting (from 2005); and 36 g for helice.
