Sporting clay shooting also know as skeet shooting is a sport that includes clay birds or targets. They are not actually clay birds, they are little clay disks usually the size of the palm of your hand. Skeet shooting is done with shotguns only. While you are shooting there is a wide variety of things you can do. You can just shoot for fun, compete in tournaments, join clubs, and at most shooting clubs you dont need other people there to trap for you. If you want to shoot by yourself they have either have mics that pick up when you call for a clay to be thrown or timers that count down and let you have time to get ready to shoot. Along with this being a sport it can be very competitive. People go around to tournaments (Big deal ones) and that is their living.
