    Please forgive me but I'm a 68 year old newbie to trap shooting and also to this site. I only registered a few days ago.

    I've checked through the ATA rule book and can find no information on shotgun barrel length. Is there any requirements on this? At one time I read a thread that talked about 30" and 32" barrels but now I see a lot of traps guns sold with 34" barrels. Can you use even longer and/or shorter barrels than 30 to 34 inch?

    Do trap shooters use longer barrels because they are more accurate or because it helps keep the pattern together better on longer shots?

    Thank you for any info you can provide.
