    Two Things:

    Does anyone play games at the Practice Traps at big shoots... I'm talking big money games? Like a Trap version of Horse for side money? Sitting at the Cardinal Classic for a couple days in the dead heat with no "Buffalo Hot Dog Vendor" and a poor selection of vending options got me wondering if there was some fun and money to be made doing Anne Oakley shoots at the Practice Traps and if anyone else would be interested.

    And two... Where have all of the Model 12's gone? Seriously. We're all proud men who have a rich belief in tradition and history with sport shooting and firearms, why in the hell is everyone shooting break open guns now a days? Nevermind the fact that you basically hand your "man card" over when cutting the check for such a silly looking gun, has everyone lost touch of the history of Sport of Kings? I'd like to see a Model 12/870/31 etc Only Trap shoot. Anyone else interested? Or has everyone lost their sack with the break open shotguns?

    Perfect timing on this thread; shot my last two rounds of practice with my model 12 today. Shot a 49 (missed the last target). Been shooting poorly with the break opens for a month. Going to use the m12 for singles and hdcp at the next shoot, back to basics.

    My former Model 31 shot very nice but as I shoot left hand it was a pain in the butt.

    Break open is the obvious way to shoot trap and it is much safer with a break open.

    Being wrong is one thing, but bad attitude is just plain rude.

    Boy am I glad I'm shooting a Model 12, especially if everybody else's guns are broken open.

    That's not first class pot stirring ...... that's a collosal waste of space and the time to read it.


    This needs to go under a new category entitled "Catsh$t"
