    Here are more photos in a previous thread which shows the rest of the gun. He also won a gold medal with this in 2004.

    Has this ever been used in American Trap?? If not, why??

    What's up with the ported tubes? I thought that was a big no-no in international shooting?

    Interesting gun setup though.

    I have heard that the guy from U.A.E. pictured above has enough money to buy Beretta.

    I'd wager the space between your eyes is pretty narrow...

    I give him A+ for those muffs though...

    I don't guess that shooting glasses are required?

    I love those pictures. I looked those over during the Olympics. You can't really argue with his results, he can shoot very well, but...dang. That thing is ugly.

    It cracks me up that he has the money to use a really nice gun and he uses something that looks like it was cobbled together by my 6 year old. The rib looks like a name plate off the top of an old chain link gate, The comb looks to be spray painted 2x4, and the porting? Wow. He is the nephew or cousin of the Leader of the UAE.

    +1 on the earmuffs. The guy must have a sense of humor.

    I wonder how many rounds have been through that thing?

    Why hasn't this ever been used in American trap? Because American trap shooters don't want to spend the money...I've thought about building something similar that would clamp onto an original rib, but then had a second thought that it wouldn't sell.

    Looks like his "really nice gun" won GOLD in the 2004 Olympics. Beauty or ABILITY is in the beHOLDER of the gun. Hell I'd shoot a spacegun if I could shoot like him!!!!

    Josh,

    It isn't so much that shooters are too cheap, as it is unconventional. Most shooters still can't accept the look of a PFS.

    What's with the porting only being on the bottom barrel, is there any scientific back-up to this? Haven't seen it before.

    Bigdog, No kidding. I'd be willing to shoot a 2x4 stocked Beretta if I could shoot that well in return. Wait. That's what I shoot already. It hasn't helped either... Never mind.

    I guess that was my first thought ec90t. I didn't think people would like the looks of it, nor would they think it would actually work. But, what can you do? Josh

    Trappy, the porting is to reduce muzzle rise from the first shot, allowing a faster recovery to the 2nd shot.

    BigM, that's what I hear and assumed, but I thought that was all myth?

    New rules in Bunker limit how far back from the muzzle porting can be, they go into effect later this year . I think its about 9 inches but my memory is getting old faster than the rest of me.
