    Shooters I was needing some input on which is a good reasonable priced portable Trap Slinger to do some informal shooting and practice with. I would like one that will throw birds close to the speed of gun club birds as possdible, if there is any.
    Thanks Carey

    My wife and I use one of the Do-All products. Bought it at Cabelas and we've been very happy with it. She's a small lady and has no problem bringing the arm around to set it. Adjustable spring and I think it's plenty fast enough. We have a lot of enjoyable Sunday afternoons with it.

    Get a Western handset machine and add the DS100 for automatic singles or doubles trap. The loader costs $1495. More info including video on my website.
