    Look at the Trap and Field Magazine that's got the All American Team featured in it. Harlan Campbell, captain for the 5th time.

    Wow. With all the K-80s in the top 5 list, I guess we can expect a lot of turnover from guns blowing up. LOL

    I've been wondering about these guys and their Trap Specials. How many 100's from 27 with the Trap Specials? How many with the Trap specials and choke tubes? Anyone know?

    I would say that's pretty accurate, when you consider what all the "old timers" (no disrespect meant here by any means" did to advance the sport and not have all the advantages of today.

    Jerry,
    A pretty good list. You overlooked a few shooters though........I know it is only ten. You left yourself off the list, humble of you...Also, I have seen Stu Welton at the Grand American lead the entire field all week only to lose to Leo by two targets on the 1000. I also saw him go to Vernal and finish in front of most on your list. Stu does not travel all year long, but if he did, aw heck, even though he doesn't, he is as good as anyone on your list.

    Lyle
    PS....I didn't see my name there either! Also, I am taking all of you in the poker tourney in Vernal.....:)

    Hi Jerry,
    Now I like your list.......many many others who are right there on any given day. Out West......Parr, Kelly, Stears, Stringer, Heller, many many more.

    Here is a question........how do these boys fare against the sporting clay guys if trap's best shoot in that World All Around that they have held in Texas the last couple of years?

    and what about Dan Bonillas...

    so difficult a list to do...

    And I disagree that the older ones were better....

    Several crossed over the decades and succeeded greatly...

    Everybody likes to forget Dan because he doesn't shoot that much any more but he still has the ability when he gets fired up as evidenced by his winning the California State Handicap last year. In the 70's and 80's most of the time you were shooting for second if Dan was on the grounds. Can't really argue much with Jerry's list though. Leo has been pretty strong forever and with his latest scores at the Southern Grand it looks like he's off to another good year. Great to see Jimmy Heller going into the Hall this year. I still get over to Los Angeles quite often and I'm looking forward to shaking Jimmy's hand and congratulating him in person the next time I see him.
