    It's "Trap House Green" but you have to wink at the salesperson when telling them the color. After they catch your wink is when you tell 'em the secret password.

    At the club (MInneapolis GC) they recentlyinstalled a 10th trap. Adn finished the job with proper stuff incl a new #10 sign in the middle of the back wall flush to the concrete roof. During one of my numerous gun adjustments I got my gun about half way mounted and let the trigger go. I nailed the roof but the center cluster got the 10 sign. the following week I nailed it the same place. At least I am consistent

    MX2G, no fret. I reached a milestone this summer. I let one go over the house at the Grand during a Prelim Singles Event. Do they have a pin or a patch for that? I mean come on, The Grand.

    I always let the trigger go as i am mounting the gu n. I cannot set the trigger with the gun on my shoulder. And everytime I let off an errant shell, I always wonder how I held onto the gun.

    Some of the trap houses at the Portland Gun Club are painted black AND green.

    These trap houses are wider than the current specifications, so they are painted black to the current specs, and the areas on both sides that goes beyond the spec is green to blend in with the grass. This is so shooters hold by referencing certain parts of a trap house will not be thrown off by the extra width.

    I always thought a camouflage paint scheme would be perfect or bright yellow.
