    Ive heard of someone being called a "sandbagger",so was wondering what if any other trapshooting slang exists besides normal profanity?

    Smokification, smokify, big smoke, small smoke, near smoke, far smoke. My favorite is the 'smoke ring'. That happens when you hit a target so dead center the smoke actuall rolls into a ring. Very rare.

    Also, 'edge smoke' when you're not quite on.

    "Choke" can have 2 different meanings in trap.

    Which box are they on. Box of shells or trapper box. Up or down a notch, raising or lowering the trap to change the elevation of the bird.

    "dust", "dusted", target hit with a pellet or two, not enough to break, but something observed coming off the target in flight.

    Well, Rick I guess you pegged me. I'm not too good a shooter, and I do refer to the top shots as 'pros' and 'big dogs'. However, I only do it with admiration for the quality of their shooting, and in a friendly, way.

    "over-neth it"

    I have never heard that one before! But I have seen it done and have done it myself many, many times. I won't forget to use it for my reason of miss either. Paul in Nebraska.
