    FOR SALE: 1915 Marlin Hand Trap, one of the rarest of all hand traps. How many of you collectors own one of these?

    In the ATA Hall of Fame Museum, a picture of an identical Marlin Hand Trap is displayed with an estimated value of $500-$700. Will take offers starting at $600.

    I will be at the Iowa State Shoot in Cedar Falls Monday, July 23 through Sunday, July 29. Anyone is welcome to stop by my motorhome, camper space #139West, to view the Marlin Hand Trap. I will also be at Sparta for the Grand American proper, August 11-18, in camping space #652.

    Looks like a glass ball thrower. Not that I ever saw a glass ball thrower.

    I guess the marlin hand trap thrower would throw the old 3 hole targets more than the new type 2 hole targets wouldn't it.
