    I'm not suggesting throwing them for competition but maybe if they would "sponsor" a practice trap at the Grand so the shooters that have never shot them, could. They might even pick some customers up.

    I shoot at 4 clubs where 2 throw WF and 2 throw Lawry's and I have never heard anyone say which is better. It is like the Ford Chevy thing. The main difference is the money they save on targets.

    A brand of target, made in Canada, often discussed on this forum.

    I would say Lawry targets are every bit as good as White Flyers, and in fact probably more consistent from lot to lot.

    Any target made with pitch is going to be scarce. They already are

    My experience with Lawries, albeit a long time ago, is that they were very hard and difficult to break.

    SC,

    "albeit a long time ago". Therein lies the truth. Put 'em in the trap machine now, alternating columns with WFs and you will not see a difference. Unfortunately, they are getting pricey right along with the WFs now.

    Respectfully,

    Didn't the WF plant burn last week? Also the Lawry boxes say Made with US products. I think WF supplies Lawry with molds?? Not sure. Dave T.

    Dave- The pitch plant that supplies the main raw mat'l for the targets burned, not the WF plant. And I'd highly doubt that Lawry got his moulds for WF, since the design is completely different.

    The Lawry's were very dirty when we tried several pallets of them. Has this changed recently. They required way too much cleaning on our GMV's.

    Well I just heard Lawry target price just went up. I was involved in target purchase from them last year they were pleasant to deal with. The Big truck driver was cool as heck and helped.

    The targets are made with US product and well CANADA AINT CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I also think they may want to look into reclaiming targets like the lead!!! I know infront of out main 2 traps the broken pieces are bout 2 feet deep!!!


    I tried useing a Clay target as a lead mold 1 time they melt real good LMAO wont happen ever again!!!

    we throw lawry targets at our club and they break just fine. they dont seem to
    "smoke" like white flyers but they break just as easily and we get no complaints.

    Our club took delivery of a full truck load of Lawry targets two weeks ago Price delivered was $8.65/case. We have used them for the last 15 years I have been associated with the club and I do the machine maint. on the traps, no dirt issues here. I remove the magazines 2X per year for a vac.and greasing. The delivery truck is always stopping somewhere on the return trip to pickup something for the manuf. process (paint, cardboard, etc.).
