    Bought an old Trap book today I

    I went to an antique store today near Hartford, CT, and found a copy of Field, Skeet and Trapshooting by Charles Edward Chapel, copyright 1949, published by Coward-McCann, Inc. 288 pp. One of the more interesting chapters that the author writes about involves shotgun games. He uses the term 'multiple trap game' to describe what we now call 'sporting clays', and what we now call 'wobble trap' was then known as 'joker-trap'. There are even chapters on the Mo-Skeet-O and Targo shotgun games. What a great find! (I got a good deal on it as well!). I found something else, but that is for a subsequent thread.
