Lasersport clay pigeon shooting is a sport which can be enjoyed by everyone. The players use a modified shotgun to fire an infra-red beam at clays launched from a conventional clay launcher. Whenever a trigger is pulled, the Lasersport control module/scoreboard generates the shotgun ‘bang’ and when a player hits the target it reproduces the sound of a breaking clay. An indicator on the gun instantly tells the player whether he has hit or missed the target, and spectators and players can see the score of each player on the large electronic scoreboard. High Technology Lasersport is played with authentic but de-activated 12-bore shotguns, each system having 5 Lasersport guns and a control module/digital scoreboard. Incorporated in the guns is a dedicated microchip which controls the infra-red beam fired by the guns. Each gun has an individual radio transmitter which sends information to the control module, which reproduces the realistic ‘bang’ and works out the scores and displays them on its large integral scoreboard.
In each round of Lasersport up to 5 people can shoot at the same targets launched from a number of different positions at various speeds and angles. Several games, some easier than others, can be played. Whichever game you are playing, you score points when you hit the target. At the end of the competition the players who have scored the most points are the winners.
