    Is this a trick question? Are you going to say there ARE no straightaways on 1 & 5?

    I submit that once you've broken a couple thousand trap targets you've hit every angle from every peg. How you describe those angles only has relevance for you.

    I can hit any target with a 1 oz load just not as often as I can with 1 1/8.

    What? Are we talking Trap? Skeet? If it were from Stations 1 and 7 I could understand the question better. Hummm...

    If the trap is set at 17 degrees off the center post and properly tuned, it shouldn't throw a true straight away from either stations 1 or 5. You'd have to step about a yard to the right or left to see a true straight away target from those two posts in ATA set targets.

    I've broken 95s to 97s from the 26-27 with one ounce loads.

    A one ounce load will break any target thrown on a trap range that a 1 1/8th ounce load could break.

    As I said, 1 oz will break any of them, just not as many.

    Only if your gun is trained to do so, right longshot!
