    Hello everyone, I need your advice / help.

    I am looking for a machine that does not have to manually set for each target is somewhat portable (can be moved from location to location easily). It would need to be battery operated (12 volt I assume) and be somewhat durable. I think the ones that Sporting Clays facilities have would do fine. It will only need it to throw the standard targets however if it threw the mini's or the really thin targets this would be a bonus.

    Please let me know what advice you have for someone who would like to shoot some targets. I would like to get one as soon as possible, so please let me know which target machines you would recommend.

    I like the Promatic personal traps.

    I've seen the Atlas and used it, and it is good serviceable machine. It is a little more lightly built than the Promatic, but somewhat cheaper.

    I have an Atlas 250 that I have had for 2-3 years. It throws a pretty consistent target. We use it twice a week on our 5 stand and it just throws and throws.

    I agree with Bailey above. i have an Atlas AT250, been using three yrs without so much as an adjustment. Like the energizer bunny just keeeps going and going. I am thinking about buying another one so i can shoot some doubles. They have a controller that will work 2 machines now. JD

    You can now shoot automatic doubles or singles by converting the tried and true Western handset traps. It's much more affordable than two separate machines and a controller. Throws a registered ATA or PITA target.
