    Ok I followed the instructions--don't know if pics will come up.

    Was in Budapest in September. Shot at the Hungarian national olympic range at the Sarluspuzta Club Hotel. The range is on the Hotels premises about 45 miles south of Budapest.

    Had a nice shoot, placed 7th out of 35 shooters in their club championships.

    Most using Perazzis and some sxs ,ammo Fiochi made in Hungary.

    On my squad a former european gold medalist and the young man on the left is a member of the Austrian youth team.

    Any questions drop me a line...MIKE

    FOR ctreay!!

    Not realy a shell catcher as such. Shooters throw their empties in the nets .each station has one so the grounds are always neat and clean.

    Nice and elegant solution just a round bar frame with a net liner.

    Whiz White saw the pics and wants to have rhem made up for his club....be my guest....MIKE

    Thanks for sharing Mike!

    Was it an international style shoot?

    6 man squads, international Bunker, 2 shots at each target, change after each shot?

    What did you think of the roof over your head?

    Best,
    Tom

    Tom; Yes Olympic Bunker and yes as far as a roof overhead --does not bother in the least.

    I have shot in cairo ,amman and caeseria Isreal and all have some means of roof overhead or an apron ....mostly to keep of the very very hot sun...in Europe would be for rain. High enough to not bother the shooter at all.

    Mentioned that moast of the o/u were Perazzis. Karoly Gombos was telling me that as he is their agent he brings in Perrazis at the best price. He also flies the client to Bresia for a fitting before they import the gun to Hungary...the proper way Iam thinking...................MIKE

    They are a good idea for what trap they are used for. The handicap system in trap would not work that well. They would either needed to be moved at each yardage or have have a bunch of them. I guess a smaller square 16x16 or so would work

    Still cool.

    I am willing to sacrifice the handicap event for covered firing points with heat. It's been a very cold winter. HMB

    Hap -posted these pictures foe me.

    Note Straight away--can see the yellow target in both pictures

    Note; The computor at refs posistion post the scores at end of round direct to the LCD screne in the clubhouse. Neat operation as the program gives an updated posistion of the shooter, total score ,each target score.

    First time i saw this ---probably at some clubs in the States.

    Hope you liked the pictures.............MIKE
