Yes (two trap club).I am thinking about proposing that our small trap club try a Nostalgia Shoot. Does anyone have any experience with doing one? I do not think that we can just do a Model 12 shoot, or even limit the guns to the list that the Grand American event uses, and get much of a crowd. The intent would be to have fun shooting old shotguns with Lewis classes and maybe a added money draw pot to keep all levels of shooters interested. 50 bird event 25 from the 16 and 25 from hcp.
My preliminary list of guns
Winchester- M12, M21, M37, Super X1-2
Remington- M31, M32, M3200, maybe even old fixed choke 870s and 1100s
Browning- Superposed, A-5, Double Automatic, B-2000
Any side by side
Maybe even any pump gun to include more shooters.
Another option would be to do this prior to, or after, a regular 50 bird event and just do a 25 bird mini program. I am thinking pay a draw pot winner and Top Gun (ties shoot off for Top Gun).
Our normal First Sunday of the Month draws about 50 shooters. If we got half of that to shoot this, I would consider it worth the effort. Some of our younger shooters might not even know some of these models.
We are about to have one a week from Saturday.
My secretary and I knowing the potential limitations imposed by the Grand list are allowing any shotgun that the design was first marketed in 1950 or earlier. This allowed 870's to be used.
We had I believe 32 entries last year, 50 singles and 50 from the 23yd line.
