    Has anyone seen the new H & R trap gun? I understand MSRP is just over $400.00.
    Any info available on this gun?

    I can't see why it would be even close to $400, when the standard Topper...which only lacks the vent rib and extended choke tube of the Trap model....is about $150 on the street.

    As soon as it's available, I'm customizing one for a fellow TS.com poster. I think it's great that H&R is offering this gun.

    I hate to waste another post, however, I didn't know this site had a spell check.
    I too, intend to buy one of the H & R's trap guns, to mess around with.
    Many thanks,
    JJJ

    Looks like it will be a TERRIBLE trap gun....and for that reason alone, I think I'll buy one. Bud's tells me they should be arriving in the shops in about three months and go for around $320.

    I had a H&R Topper JR 20GA that my dad got me when I was 12, I bet he paid no more than $75.00 for that gun and I bagged more rabbits with that gun than I did any other.

    Reliable and dependable!

    I may have to buy one as a loaner for new shooters. With one ounce loads, it should break targets and be FUN to shoot. Also, no issues of loading more than one bullet in the gun!

    They MUST be decocked before they can be unbreeched. If you are working with a new shooter, you will be standing right beside them until they demonstrate ability to safely handle a firearm. Right?

    This may be the ULTIMATE loaner. I wonder about exposed hammer issues for SCTP competition.

    Reliable and dependable! Probably.

    But beware.

    I bet they'll be VERY light (read, harsh recoil) and whippy, and their triggers will be heavy and feel like a Daisy Red Rider.

    The exposed hammers are likely to be very difficult for young kids with weak thumbs.

    If you use one of these for a loaner, I'd go with 7/8 ounce loads.

    Just wonder how this gun will be any better than the Remington Russian single-shot sporting gun everyone (including myself) though might be a good cheap loaner gun, but never worked out.

    Anyone know if you can hold the trigger down so you can have a (thumb) release? ;-)

    This one is a fancy single shot with a short thick walled barrel, removable chokes but has little weight, just like all H & R singles. Personally I would not want to shoot a 100 targets and get beat up due to lack of weight and short stock. As far as a youth gun for trap, it could even create a lot of bad habits and/or a severe flinch.

    devilsadvocate .... Sorry for the bad post about the short barrel, the one I pulled off the shelf & examined must have been either the Classic or the Jr. instead of the Trap model. I’ll have to go back and ask for the Trap model to make sure, thanks again for the correction.

    With some added weight and light loads, this is a winner for the kids! Wonder how long before we hear of one blowing a gasket? I'm guessing never according to what Bruce Bowen tried with his! I can't wait till a set of young eyes pound some hotshot in a shoot-off with one of these! :) Hap

    I already shoot a shotgun that gives a lot of people the giggles, why not another?

    Heck it will pair up nicely with an H&R Topper my 14yo is already trying to say is his!

    I have an old Lafever trap gun that is in about the same catagory as this HR. Keep it in the barn incase I come home and some scum is in the house and I also shoot at starlings with it. The only way I can hit the barn with it is if I'm inside of the barn.

    Have one will sell you for $200.00 plus shipping. Bought it for my 9 year old grandson, then moved him on up to a BT-99. Gun has 3 chokes and fired probably 500 rounds. Good starter gun to see if kids are going to like the sport or not.

    Good luck,

    I am with you Hap. So much talk about guns,when the brand of the gun means so little.
