    If I were to open a magazine a see the ads for the top trap guns 15 years ago, what would they be (mfg and model #)? What would the barrel lengths be? Rib heights? What did they cost?

    My guess, MOdel 12 would not have been on the list. I recall few being shot 10 years earlier in '87. Prob same ones as today.

    Mostly the same as today. P&K Guns, Ljutic, Browning. Makes me wonder why not much new and radically different since 1997. Could it be because we old farts, the majority in the sport, are so set in our ways that we shun change? Marc
