    These keep coming up so I thought we might as well get them all straightened out once and for all:

    1.Which is better from the 27?: 1/8 oz or 1 1/8oz? 2.Which burns cleaner? Red Dot or Black Powder? 3.Which breaks targets better?: 7 1/2 or #4 buckshot? 4. What removes plastic buildup better?: Hoppes #9 or carbolic acid? 5. What is the best reloader?: Spoiler or Lee hand tool? 6. Where would you rather have the Grand?: Vandalia or the South Pole? 7. How much speed is needed to reliably break targets?: 1150 fps or speed of light? 8. Why do we shoot trap?: Because it costs so blamed much or are we just too old and fat to play football anymore? 9. What barrel length is the best?: 34" or one just tall enough to hold enough beer for after the shoot. 10. What is the best trap gun?: Lutic or H&R Topper.

    Add any questions that you need the experts answered.

    Will the Grand American Trapshoot ever be held (again) in Vandalia, Ohio?

    Would the Cardinal Center hawks object?

    Which is the better gauge for 16 yard shooting? A 12 gauge or a .410 gauge.

    Is an 8 point crimp better or should I just stick with my old tried and true 3 point crimps?

    Should I use a rubber recoil pad, or is that old hard plastic one that my Daddy used good enough?

    Is it okay to use a 3 1/4 dram shell if I don't get caught?

    How about 1 1/4 ounces of No.5 shot for 16s and maybe 3 inch shells with No.4 shot for handicap?

    Is it okay to shoot with my toe across the line just a little bit?

    Is copper plated shot okay as long as I plate it myself?

    Should I wear a hat to protect myself from the sun, or just be a macho kind of guy?

    Should I tell Shootlow what he's been doing wrong all of these years or just keep quiet?

    Great thread!

    Let's hear some more!

    Here are few more:

    Should I use grease or cooking oil on the hinge pins of my new karate gun?

    Which one is better for cleaning my gun, CLP or WTF?

    I am a one-eyed shooter, on station one should I hold on the house or next to the moon?

    Will 7/8 oz #9 shot @1150 fps reliably break targets from the 27?

    Which one is better for home defense, a shotgun or a baseball bat?

    Why does my $300 (bought used 40 yrs. ago) Rem. 31 TC break targets just as well as my several thousand $$$$ brand XYZ single bbl. And feel better?

    Why can I break 99s but still don't have even 1-100 st.?

    Why did my wife of 50 yrs. just agree to repeat our wedding vows, & then do it, I thought she would have smartened up after this long????

    Why wasn't I born rich & handsome instead of---- well you know????

    Why after 40 plus yrs. of trap shooting don't I know which is the best size 7&1\2 or 8 ?????

    Oh I give up it's just too much for my little brain....

    Do I need a combo?

    Which is better, top single or unsingle?

    Will my scores go up if I get a Perazzi?

    Will my scores go up if I get a Ljutic?

    Will my scores go up if I get a Krieghoff?

    What's wrong with an SKB?

    Which is better, a Caesar Guerini, or a Blaser F3?

    Will my scores go up if I get an adjustable comb, adjustable rib, adjustable butt plate, and 37 choke tubes?

    Will porting reduce recoil?

    Will ported choke tubes reduce muzzle jump?

    Are extended choke tubes better than flush choke tubes?

    Should I get my BT-99 ported?
