    Trap shooting was designed as practice for hunting birds, and I always assumed that (and sport) was all it was ever used for.

    However, turns out that in WWI, the US Army found a very different use for skilled trap shooters:

    Williamson, Harold F. (1952). Winchester (1st ed.). Washington DC: Combat Forces. pp. 158–159.

    So there you go, trap shooting has battlefield application :D

    It's good to know that I've been training for something that is so cool and yet never even realised I was doing it. :D
