For those with access to property suitable for safe shotgun practice, the 1-Step from Trius Traps can help create an impromptu clays range. The sturdy but portable trap has four launch-angle settings and a turn-in/out speed adjustment from beginner-level to high-velocity birds that fly 60 yds. or more.

Unlike typical hand-cocked units where the throwing arm must be retracted under heavy spring pressure, the 1-Step is foot-operated. As the name implies, simply step on it, both to compress the spring and then release the bird in a single action, making it safer than handling a pressurized arm. The portable launcher can also throw “simo” pairs by stacking one target atop another.

Along with its heavy-gauge steel frame, the 1-Step’s moving parts use oil-impregnated brass bushings, thereby promising years of trouble-free service. Suggested retail pricing on the Trius 1-Step is $136. For more information, visit
