    After looking at about 40 shooting photos and a couple videos at the NBCOlympics website, it looks like Perazzi is by far the #1 shooting iron for trap. There are about 30some pictures of shooters with a Perazzi and so far just one other with a Beretta. Looks like that is what the top shooters put their trust in.

    I believe the American double trap shooters are using K guns.

    Many guys (including me) will sometimes put new springs in, basically, just for the hell of it. Put new springs in my TMX for the first time at about 110,000 rds.

    I was talking to Susan Nattrass last month and she said that was the gun of choice.

    Saw several Berettas too. Mostly DT-10's.

    In the photos I saw, those were the only two brands.

    I shoot a MX-10RS, TMX, TM-1, and MX-3, how come I'm not Olympic caliber? I think is the Indian not the bow. BRG_II

    It's the Indian for sure, but it helps if your bow is balanced & your arrow is straight. :)

    I was told that Perazzi opted to attend the Olympics as opposed to the Grand by a friend of mine who is in Sparta ... Good Choice ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I think you will find a lot of the perzzi's used in the olypmics are coil spring trigger groups, which you can get if you prefer.

    It also appears that with the exception of Corey everyone was using flat ribbed guns for the singles event. Its Double Trap where you will see the Brooklyn models.
