Myself and a buddy who knew what he was doing reset the traps at the gun club I shoot at. I don't think they have been set in years. trap #1 was throwing 3' to high and 5' outside of the boundary, and 1o yards to far. Trap #2 was throwing birds 2' low, 8 to 10 yards out of bounds, and about 15 yards to far. we reset everything with a lazer based off the height and and angles of the #3 station. according to ATA rules. It should be interesting to see the effects on the scores.

I guess I am very lucky....I watch the people out at my club checking the traps at least every couple weeks. I will say they are consistent from one field to the other.

IMO the trap should be (re)set for height and speed everyday shooting day. That way you account for conditions, and assuming it is a PAT, you let the tension off the band between shooting days.

Pat! our traps are so old and obsolete we haven't been able to find spare parts for them.
