Clays are called exactly that - clays. Sometimes they will be referred to as targets or clay pidgeons, but I am not aware of any other commonly used terms for clays.

This is a difficult question - ask 10 people and you'll get 10 answers. For clay trap and double clays, it's hard to beat a quality over and under or a side by side 12 guage. For upland game birds, a solid pump or semi automatic from any number of manufacturers will work. If your budget allows only one shotgun, a 12 guage semi-auto that shoots a 2 3/4 shell will work for clays and most game birds. My personal preference is for the Remington 1100. They have been around for years and replacement parts are easy to find.
