    Looking to build my own trap range for my personal and friends use. I was wondering for around 4000 or less what is the best trap for the money. I have experience with promatic traps at my gun club. Was wondering about atlas traps, promatic or something else. I have the perfect location on my farm. What do you all think. Thanks in advance.

    I got a winchester-western turrent trap that I would like to sell. Was rebuilt 500 targets ago. I can't use it on my place neighbors have complained.

    I have a machine that holds close to 300 targets and will oscillate for ATA and wobble presentations. If you want one that throws doubles I have another one that will do that too. It's in your price range. Send me a PM or call Ian at 250-216-8937.

    I am located in south central IL.
    I have been reading trapshooters for 3 years. I just signed up last week. This is a great place. I have shot trap for 25 years at local derbys and meat shoots. I recently started shooting registered birds. Money and my job have kept me from registering more targets. I hope to shoot more in the future so I can shoot the grand with out penalty.

    There is a new trap company Apex Clay Traps. Andy Perkins and Simmon Hurley both foremore Promatic employees are building these machines. They are making sporting machines. I am working with them designing and building an ATA base for their machines. This would make you a very good machine in your price range. I have pics on my home computer I could email tonight.

    You can get a used Pat trap for that price. They will throw many targets and use few parts.

    Since they are the best, your choice is obvious.
