    Watching the women's finals it was a one shot event. I thought I remembered the games in China four years ago when trap was a two shot event. Is my memory bad or did they change the rules?

    I believe that shootoffs or finals are 1 shot while all other rounds are 2 shot.

    Initial qualification rounds are two shot. Finals are one shot.

    I have been told it was moving to a 1 shot game in the near future. The 2 shot Prelims and 1 shot finals is a transition.

    I think one shot in the shootoffs is great. Who you gonna bet on? the guy who broke 190 targets with 230 shells or the guy who broke 190 with 210 shells?

    And coming next year will be a complete change in the finals format. Essentially, qualifications will be obtaining a seed position in the finals. Still single shot finals.

    Very doubtful the two shot main event will go away until 150's are a regular thing. Porting is allowed but can extend only so far from the muzzle. Original manufacturer is construed to mean a qualified company which does porting. Confusing to me too considering the language of the rule.
