    What kind of guns were used by our famous hall of fame shooters? How about Rudy Etchen or Britt Robinson? Surely these men used several different guns during their careers. What about the earlier shooters like Homer Clark, his father? There are so many stories to be told (Dick Baldwin is needed here).
    I know there were Model 12's, Remington M-31's and Arnold's M-37.

    he told me in Reno at Golden West shoot at pyramid road location , that Tom

    Seitz ruined the browning, it was never right for him after Tom's work.

    I would say for trap at least, the shotgun would be far and away the most popular.

    Gravestock shot a really fancy 31 for some time then the Perazzi with the bent barrel.Looks like a lot of 1100 shooters out there, add Leo to the list. All are interesting.
