    If you took into account the improvements in guns and ammo over the years, who would you consider to be the greatest trapshooter of all time?

    I'm probably gonna get slammed by Trench12 because I haven't researched the old threads but his Grandpa was a heck of a shot. Look at the thread of his old pictures plus any of BigEds threads about Mr. Graham. From what I've gathered the whole family of five brothers could give anybody a run for their money. HarryC.

    Another vote for Arnold Reiger. With todays easy targets he would hard to beat.

    Dan Bonillas was the man and to me he is still the man. Trevor Dawe.

    The most dominate shooter in ATA history has to be Nora Martin-Ross. Dan Bonillas was the mens dominate shooter in the 70-80s, best lifetime handicap average of all time. Leo H. is the current leader in the dominate department. Ray Stafford ranks right up there also, about four decades as all-American?

    Many others were great shooters too, way too many to mention!! I didn't mention the prior greats because most shot under totally different circumstances than todays shooters. Hap

    Rudy Etchen. A champion all his life and a true gentleman.

    I had a 1938 sports afield showing him winning the Junior Champ at the grand. He was very emotional when I went it out to him.

    When Nitros first came out he had to run out to his car and give me a couple boxes the minute I mentioned them.

    And he liked good whiskey.
