This past Sunday my family and I actually decided to do something fun for once. For some this would entail fishing, watching Nascar, or chopping wood; but for us, it was all about blowing things up. Triple B Clays is an outdoor shotgun sports park. Anyone from ages 8 and up can go and “Break Something” with their friends and family. “Break Something” is there enticing and catchy slogan, it’s got you already, hasn’t it? The park is located in South El Monte, just below the 60 Freeway. It is ideal for anyone who wants to take one’s mind off the daily grind all while punishing targets such as Trap and Skeet. My Dad and I have been shooting for quite awhile now, so comparative to the rest of our family we had a slight advantage. However, for those who are unfamiliar with the sport, Triple B Clays’ has many instructors available to help you for your first time.

Packages are available with or without an instructor, which include targets (Clay Pigeons), ammunition, safety equipment, and a shotgun. An instructor is highly recommended for beginners. It is crucial to be familiar with one’s firearm and proper techniques required for the sport. However, if you feel you are experienced enough, Triple B Clays offers their safety test, which if you pass, it permits you (as long as you are 18 or older) to shoot on the range without an instructor. Our instructor, Chad Roberts, helped my family and I understand the basics of the sport, including the major and minor precautions as well. For those who may have already had exposure to the game, it may seem repetitive to be taking a safety class, but there’s always something new to learn and a refresher on some procedures can never hurt. 

My first fifteen rounds literally flew by, within seconds I was already finished. Next, the rest of my family went and it was a sad sight. After a bit of practice, the instructor fired up a little family friendly competition with multiple targets to be shot. I went through the rest of my 35 rounds and before I knew it, the day was over. Other than ascertaining one’s masculinity and putting one’s family to shame, Triple B Clays offers a great outdoor family experience. The park is perfect for those weekends when you have nothing to do.
