    A few years back a person I believed was named Mr. Holbrook in Phoenix AZ did a modification on a Remington 1100 12 gauge where it would not eject the first shell except on doubles. The purpose was to save shells during tournaments where you are not allowed to pick up your empties. This method allowed you to save 21 out of your 25 shell empties. Does anyone know of this modification and if so--how is it done.

    Put on a T&S shell catcher and you can save all 25. If you remove the gas piston rings, it won't eject the shell, but you have to open the bolt manually, and catch the hull as it comes out. Don't drop it. Mark

    For those confused by kacharley's post, he is obviously talking about skeet, and so the system he's talking about was one that would catch only the first hull in doubles, while allowing the gun to recycle the second. Since a double is thrown on stations 1,2,6, and 7, that would keep 21 out of 25 hulls from hitting the ground.

    I remember there was an invention like that. It wasn't a modification, it was an attachment. I thought it might be Tom Morton'. The other name doesn't register.

    Anyone who can break Hi 2 halfway to the center stake should never miss a Trap target or turn one down. Jeff

    Anyone who can break a double at station 4, shooting it both ways should never miss a trap double.

    I used to have a shell catcher for my 1100 that replaced the bolt handle. It would catch the hull on singles and on doubles, you popped it off and both hulls would hit the ground. But you could keep 17 of them from hitting the ground. If you were shooting trap with an 1100, you could keep them all. The thing had 2 fingers that were parallel to the ejection port that caught the hull before it came out of the chamber. Unfortunately, I lost it many years ago and have seen nothing like it since. I believe it was made by Lachmiller (sp).

    I still have one for a 20 gauge. It looks like a barbeque fork. It also works better with paper hulls than plastic. Just don't hit the bolt release by mistake because it smarts.
