    I saw a trident bolt action trap gun on gun broker, anyone know much about these. Looks like an odd duck, but might be one of those unusual guns that I like to collect. any input would be appreciated!

    It looks a lot like the Holmes Super Trap that Bill Holmes in the Springfield Arkansas area was building. It does have some different points tho.

    steetiee.........I would want one if it broke one more bird than a $10,000.00 Italian or German gun and only cost 1000.00 made right here in the USA. I don't see a lot of bench rest shooters winning matchs with a rifle that looks like rifles that have been made for the last 200 years. We shotgunners have to get over the fact that a fancy wood stocked pretty thing does not necessarily breaks more birds. A trap gun has to fit the shooter and be almost non-breakable and that is what we all are looking for. I think people like Holmes and Ljutic are the type of people we need to bring the trap gun into the state it has yet to achieve. You know if it was not for some American ideas in trying to make the perfect trap gun, both the K&P guns would still be made with non- adjustable stocks, low ribs, non-adjustable ribs, fixed chokes and and so on.

    That is a Holmes designed shotgun, he designs mostly survivalist type home made guns, he is from SPRINGDALE AR. I've seen a few of these at gunshows around here for considerably less from time to time. Have no Idea how it would work for a trap gun.

    The gun pictured on this thread is a trap gun model. It was one of the later issues before Mr. Holmes died. He was offering this trap gun as far back as the 1980's, maybe late 70's, and the apperance of the gun changed over time. He used to run ads in American Shotgunner.

    His earlier guns did not have the recoil reducing stock that I remember. He wrote a book which provided instructions and plans for making several of his designs and I think even this trap model was included, but again my memory is not perfect on this.

    I can't identify the action he used in making this gun? Some bolt rifles and shotguns have far superior trigger sears than a lot of competition shotguns have. I'd like to try shooting one like pictured above!! Hap
