    I want to invest in making a nice trap shooting range at my home. I want an auto feeder for the targets with voice activation. So info is needed on what to buy, size of trap house complete. I don't need a 1000 clay target holder, 250 would be nice.
    2nd
    Field layout and grade information for placement of the house and cement field layout, 16 to the 27 yd line.
    My land has a little grade fall from shooters position to the trap house. I can make the grade level if necesary.
    Thanks you before hand on anything you can help with.

    Ask the ATA office for blueprints, Rod. Once you get them, we can answer questions, but to try to tell you how without the diagrams would never work.

    It can be done and we'll all envy you - at least I will!

    Will be working on the shooting stations this year. Don't want to use concrete $$$$. Probably will use hedge posts (same manner as landscape timbers) for border and fill with creek gravel. Cheap and fits our hillbilly style. Range info. is the best place for information.

    Thanks for the ideas and the link MK. Now can anyone tell me where to look for a good thrower to buy that can handle doubles?

    I build modified Western trap machines. Choose from a 270 (CS270) capacity singles automatic carousel or a 100 twin stack (DS100) that throws singles or doubles automatic. Machines are available in ATA or Continental/Wobble models. Available with personal voice activation. Call Ian at Western Retro Products for more information. 250-216-8937. Complete packages starting from $2495 plus shipping.
