    I saw the very nice plaque given to a gentleman for breaking his first 100 at the 27.

    How rare are 100's at the 27?

    I have yet to see one and personally not even close to the 27 to even sniff one.

    At the Missouri Fall Handicap last year I shot a 99 only to be beaten by a 100 from the 27............Oh, but it was Leo Harrison that shot it :)

    A better question would be "How common is it for mere mortals to shoot a 100 from the 27 yd line?"

    those are only the grand slam people I know several people who have shot 100 from 27 that dont have grand slams (me included) and I know several that have shot more than one but there still arent very many and it is still a big accomplishment. KK

    Grand Slam at trap? 100x100 at 16, Handicap, & Doubles? At the same shoot, or life-time?

    Oh, not all so rare. At the PITA Grand Pacific in 2005, we watched Rich Schrode and Kay Ohye pound out multiple 27 yard, 100 straights over the week. Any really big shoot's going to have some of that kinda of shooting by the skilled shooters.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    mrskeet -- that is easy - the 100x100 at the 27.

    First you got to get back there. Then you gotta run them. Anyone (theoretically) can step to the line and run 200x200 in singles or 100x100 in doubles, since you don't have to earn the position at which you shoot.

    Eric Weikum came real close -- his 100x100 in the caps came at the 26.... we always gave him a hard time about that! :)

    Pretty much if you can run the 100x100 at the 27, you get your slam. There are a small number of shooters who have done that but do not have the slam, but I would guess that number is in the area of 30-40 people. Almost always a shooter completes the slam with the handicap score.

    Still waiting on mine and not holding my breath!

    I've been on the 27 yard line 25 year's (never offered a reduction). And that elusive 100 straight is still out there some place. I've shot 99's, 98's and many 97's, but 100 straight is a bear. Never even in practice. That's my shooting life's goal. 200 from the 16 is a piece of cake compared to 100 straight from the 27. You have to get to the 27 first. and only about 5% of the shooters do.

    Congratulations Jack!!

    Notice that from 1964 through 1984 (20 years) there were only 47 Grand Slams listed. In the following 20 years, there were 285 listed. Kinda tells us how much easier the "2 hole" target spread and the shortened up doubles makes it to do. My hat is off to those who accomplished the feat before the easier target settings were adopted by the ATA.

    Extremely rare around here. As a matter of fact we were discussing this a few weeks ago and were not sure if a NY resident has ever shot 100 from the 27 in NYS.

    I know there have been some NR's breaking 100's in NY, and NY residents have broken 100 from the 27 out-of-state. Not sure if Frank Little did it when he was a NY resident?

    Southbend, you hit it on the head. Targets were "softened" for shooters and the numbers show. No disrespect to today's top shooters, but to shoot a 100 from the 27 or nail a perfect Grand Slam in the 50/60/70's era was really the pinnacle of the game. One of the all time greatest accomplishments was from Dan Orlich when he shot 400x400 at Reno...no soft targets were ever thrown there. I watched him, Dan Bonillas, Ray Stafford, Bueford Baily, Britt, Larry Gravestock, Steve Carmichael, and a few others in 72 or 73 in Reno...these guys were in a class by themselves, especially when you consider how fast these targets were due to the high elevation, wide angles, and weather.

    Those traps were also Winchester traps, which were easly read. They can be timed without any problem. Not so today with Pat traps.

    shot410ga..........

    If all the traps back when were the Winchester ones that you (mistakenly) say are easy to read, then why were there not more 100's from the 27 in those days?

    I think improvement in equipment, ammunition, shotguns, etc. play a big role in more 100's from the 27 now.

    my Pal and good friend Fred Dague broke his 100X100 from the 27 last week at the HOF Shoot in West Virginia, giving him his grand slam and the 2nd grand slam from WV. Our pal John Garrison from Parkersburg is the other one.

    That's some awesome shooting.
