    A while back there were some pics posted of the trap houses at Cardinal Center. It was from the front of the houses showing the walk in openings. I searched but can't find them. Would some one please repost them.

    Thanks in advance,

    I remember those. Flat, walk-in entrance? Completely open front? Forkliftable?

    Do a search ... last August for Dave Shaffer's singles run, written by ... Walker(?) I don't know his screen-name.

    All are walk in. Road to all and you can unload a forklift or a truck.

    All I have seen unloading is a truck.

    Because of the size of the pat traps, level ground trap houses are vanishing.

    Cardinal houses will hold a complete skid of targets, possibly more.

    I don't want to get off the subject, but I received my Trapshooting USA magazine yesterday and I never see "Walker Reynolds" as a contributor anymore. He did some outstanding pictures and did have one article in the magazine but he sort of disappeared the last few months. Does anyone know where he went ? Last page has an ad for North East contributors, wondered why he isn't still doing this for them.

    Thanks, Dave in SC

    Here is a photo I took of the Cardinal Center Traphouses last year at the Classic. I'm no longer a regular contributor to Trapshooting USA--I took a promotion at work and just don't have the time.

    I may cover a couple of the North East shoots this summer but have yet to make a decision.

    All the best,

    Walker

    Is it the perspective but the machine does not look like it is in the center of the house.

    I was just wondering about that too. ATA specs are Max width of 9'6". It appears to have 6" concrete walls, so it is down to 8"6" inside width. Standard pallet width is 40". If the machine is centered, how can a pallet be inserted? Unless the machine is moved over & then re-positioned.

    I don't believe the machine can be centered in the house. Keep in mind the targets do not exit from the cent of the machine, therefore, it has to be off-set to allow the targets to exit from the center of the house.

    There is a notch in the front frame of the Pat Trap, that notch goes on the center line of the trap house. The trap houses in Corinth, MS have a similar set up only they have a full fold down door so they may be secured.

    No... the traps aren't centered--they load the houses with a forklift and the trap is off-center by that perspective but centered from the perspective of the top of the house.

    Dave Mishler sent me these photos of the traps in Sunnyvale, CA.

    Beautiful layout, but I don't see how they could load a pallet thru that door.
    It doesn't seem to be more than 32"-35" wide. Compare the door to the block used, which are standard 16" long.

    I must admit, I have never seen a white trap house before.
