    Hi Guys, What are some good books on the history of the 'Grand', where can they be got, and for roughly how much. Cheers-Graham.

    I know of only two of any real substance. One is on eBay all the time. It is 75 years of the Grand or something like that, punch in trapshooting and it should come up if it is on at that time. Usually goes for anywhere from 20 to 30 bucks. The other is the Book by Dick Baldwin, The road to yesterday. Cost on ATA website is $50.00 plus shipping. John

    I am not a trapshooter, but lurk here a lot. I bought Dick Baldwin's, it has a lot of information on the history of the Grand and trapshooting, and insights into some of the characters from the past. I loved reading it and hated when I finished it. Definitely glad I bought and won't ever turn loose of it. Wayne
