    If we ever had a vintage trap event somewhere, what would be the break point defining "vintage".

    Some guns were vintage but still produced in the '80's.

    and, no glass balls...

    Let's have a Model 12, Model 37, Model 97, Reminton 1100, Rem48, Browning Superposed shoot. Or simply put any gun that was designed before 1964.

    Hit 'em hard,

    No we can't forget Ithaca. That's why I recanted and said any gun designed before 1964. All original. No custom stocks or ribs etc. Guns must be stock as they came out of the box.

    Hit 'em hard,

    John

    Shooters must wear full suit and tie along with a full brimmed hat.

    The field need be set up with actual posts at the shooting positions. The targets must be hand set and thrown.

    That was good, I'll admit. Maybe it would need to be held in the winter.

    How about guns before 1940? I hate to say it but a 48, 1100 or a superposed do not belong in a vintage shoot. I agree with the white shirt, tie, and hat. Three hole hand set targets would be a must. The post with a box at each shooting position is nice. Paper shells with fiber wads. No swearing, or chewing. Ladies in long dresses and hats is a nice touch also, whether shooting or spectating. I think 50 16 yard, 50 25 yard, and 25 pair of doubles would be an interesting venue? No speakers, hand pullers only.

    The skeet boys do this. Check out article in ShotgunSports June 2012 issue. They actually have a world championship once a year. Guns and rules prior to 1952.

    I opened this post before anyone responded, but had to put some thought into it. jmho, Bill
