    Watching the news about the new Boeing 787 this week I saw a picture of the old Paine Field trap field - now covered by new planes.

    About 10 years ago the trap grounds lost the lease and the ground was used, as you see, as a Boeing parking lot.

    The gun club ran 6 practice traps all day Sat. and Sun. ($2 a round - break a 25 and get a free round), shot a 50 bird handicap on each Sun. and held registered PITA regularly.

    The last year they threw 700,000 targets. This capacity has never been replaced.

    "The good old days."
