    Its a good video but it was on here about 6 months ago. Glad you still brought it up for those who might not have seen it before.

    It would be a pleasure to shoot with these fellows who dressed for the occasion...suits, ties, dress hats. Cigars and cigarettes were common, but not many T-shirts and "beer bellies"... Regards, Ed

    has our sport evolved... such a nice group of middle-aged white guys shooting trap... I see then it was customary to expect someone else to pick up your empties...

    Especially liked the couple of fellows who did a nice dry-point at the camera... and the high tech eye and ear protection used at the time...

    "spats" should make a comeback!

    best regards all,

    Jay

    One man is shooting an over under that looks like a superposed. I thought they didn't come out until the 30's ?

    Shooting in 1926 Video

    I think this film's date is correct. This came from the Blanchard family archives in New Hampshire. They were a wealthier family. A copy of this should be acquired for the THOF, if it is not in there already.

    Puller sure got a good work out. I remember that cock and pull set up. Didn't worked the lever but shot alot of targets. Pulls tended to be slow compared to today.
