    I have a co-worker who is looking for an inexpensive clay pigeon thrower he can use at his local gun club that has a small area set aside for shotgun use.

    This will just be used by himself and a friend or two. Any ideas on brand and cost I can pass along to him?

    I think he's looking for something much less expensive than $1099, my guess would be something in the "not to exceed $200" range.

    He's looking to have fun not bank roll the sport.

    your friend must want a manual clay thrower then.....not an automatic thrower like some of the previous posters had posted.

    Yes, I'm guessing something in a manual thrower but more than a hand held.

    if he increases his price limit, he should look at Lincoln traps (the manual models). They are rated as the best manual out there....

    for your friends price range, I would look at Trius traps.

    I'd look around for an old Winchester trap. You can find them for a few hundred bucks.
