    Hey All,

    New to this board here, and relatively new to trapshooting. A good friend of mine got me interested in the sport, and I am really enjoying going shooting. I am shooting a Remington 1100, and it is working out well. One of the guys at the club has a shell catcher for his 1100 that is pretty unique, and after a lot of looking on the web I found out here exactly what it is. Here is the thread:

    My question is - how do I contact Smok'n Joe or Greyfox to see if they still have one of these available? Or would either of those guys please contact me?

    Thanks!!

    just do a search for the sign on name in the search box and it will come up. that is the original shell catcher for the 1100 and called a pickle fork. tough on the fingers. try one of the t and s catchers. motordoctor

    Fork shell catcher is tough on the gun too. Remington at the GRAND told me that it causes a wave in the receiver when it cycles. To much weight hanging to far out, result is cracked receiver.
