I'm sure a couple of the posters so far in this thread also recalls what the "experts" had to say about this set-up? Such things as; "you'll never come close to breaking a 25 with that POS let alone a good score!" That's close enough to overall summations of what was said.
I don't recall if Joe Kuhn broke the 100 with it or not but I do know he broke a few 99s with it as is! Joe posts here once in a while yet but the beating he took thinking outside the box was ferocious while he was putting this experiment together.
I think a 15-18 or so was his best score at trap till he put this contraption together and I encouraged him to continue his experiment through many, many emails. He succeeded by breaking pretty good scores then quit shooting ATA targets. Boy did we show him!!
I followed Joe's progress on this project from the start. Sent him pictures of my Space Gun to give him ideas of how to put his ideas into use. I really enjoyed his posts and was very sad to see he had stopped posting. If I recall, he and Dennis Devault worked together and he bought a Mach 1 and had a stock built up like the above picture. I guess the constant negative remarks were too much for him. Too bad, he was a great poster and an interesting fellow.
I too remember the posts when he was playing with ideas. GOOD FOR HIM!!! Without people like him we would have none of the modern conveniences. Like Auto shotguns, Over and Under shotguns, smokeless powder, plastic wad collumns, primers in the hull instead of flint, clay targets instead of glass balls. I could go on but you get the picture. To my fellow contributors---LAY OFF any one who does not think just like you!
Joe, who ever you are and where ever you are, send some more stuff. Some of us really enjoy and appreciate what you are trying!
