    I can't remember where I heard it but, is it true you can not use a ported gun in Olympic/Bunker Trap. I searched and could not find any info. I have shot it twice and really enjoyed it and would like to shoot it more. My gun is ported, am I out or in??

    Thanks, Bryce

    That's awesome, thanks for the info Joe!. I shot it in Arizona, I live in Colorado. I believe my only choice is Colorado Springs?? I will have to call and see when and if they allow public shooting.

    Thanks again, Bryce

    As EuroJoe noted, there are certain conditions. My boy when to Colorado Springs last year and he shoots a Citori Plus. It was measured and deemed to be legal. They put a sticker on his stock like in the ones in Corey's photo. I may be wrong but I believe they said only factory porting.

    from the big book of rules 1"=2.54cm so the 20cm thing is 7.874" but I'd guess they might not catch the diff if it was 7 7/8" hahaha


    9.4.2.6 Compensators
    The addition of compensators and similar devices fitted to gun
    barrels is permitted for Skeet, but prohibited in Trap and Double
    Trap.


    9.4.2.7 Ported Barrels and Ported Interchangeable Chokes
    ? Ported barrels are permitted, provided they do not extend
    back further than 20 cm as measured from the end of the
    muzzle; and
    ? Ported interchangeable chokes are permitted, provided their
    porting plus any barrel porting does not exceed 20 cm as
    measured from the muzzle end of the interchangeable fitted
    choke.

    Thanks for all the replies!! Looks like I am good am 99% sure my porting doesn't come back 20cm?? I will have to double check later. Does anyone know any info about shooting at the Training Centers or is there any place else in Colorado to shoot it?? Thanks again.

    Strictly speaking, if anything is done after going through Proof House - like after market ports, re solder ribs, back boring/forcing cones (ESPECIALLY forcing cones) must be re-proofed in Italy - if they catch you.

    "Strictly speaking, if anything is done after going through Proof House - like after market ports, re solder ribs, back boring/forcing cones (ESPECIALLY forcing cones) must be re-proofed in Italy - if they catch you."

    I believe that would only be of any importance if you were to sell the gun in Italy. And just how that might work I have no idea. Far more important is that an out of proof gun that fails in any way would likely be no longer considered a responsibility of the manufacturer. You screw with it an it's yours. I mean, you figured you knew more about it than the maker so you get to own it.

    Besta luck on those things
