    I have been following this forum but never posted before, but thought I would join in. I shot
    Years ago growing up and through college. Haven’t shot much since then but decided to get back into it
    Last year. No close places to practice so I decided to build my own range.Most of last spring was spent
    On dirt work and pouring concrete. Living on a farm in Kansas allowed me to put it within 40 yards of the house and garage. Only have the one pic, everything is built to ATA spec, put in a new Atlas 300 trap with voice release

    Welcome to TS. Beautiful range. One thing about Kansas, it’s flat. What type of birds you throwing? Color and brand? With a sky background certain color birds may be tough to see. You could start your own little club. Off set the cost of building the range. Anyhow welcome back to trap.
    Have fun

    Very nice trap field. I did the same thing but now I think I've been bested. I'm a big fan of the Atlas machines. Good choice.

    Good job farmer frost. You won't have trouble finding friends to share your great trapfield. There are many instructional videos available and much resource information at the ATA plus a monthly magazine: Trap & Field. Join if you have not already. Congratulations, and welcome.

    Very nice to say the least.
