The ATA sanctions many major shoots throughout the year. They include the Grand American, Satellite Grand Americans zone shoots, and state shoots. The Grand American is the world’s largest shooting tournament and attracts more than 10,000 competitors and spectators every year.
The Grand American takes place at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex, a state-of-the-art facility in Sparta, Illinois. The site includes 120 trap fields that stretch 3.5 miles. Along with the big shoots, the ATA has more than 900 gun clubs that throw registered targets throughout the year.
