I'm not suggesting throwing them for competition but maybe if they would "sponsor" a practice trap at the Grand so the shooters that have never shot them, could. They might even pick some customers up.
"albeit a long time ago". Therein lies the truth. Put 'em in the trap machine now, alternating columns with WFs and you will not see a difference. Unfortunately, they are getting pricey right along with the WFs now.
Our club took delivery of a full truck load of Lawry targets two weeks ago Price delivered was $8.65/case. We have used them for the last 15 years I have been associated with the club and I do the machine maint. on the traps, no dirt issues here. I remove the magazines 2X per year for a vac.and greasing. The delivery truck is always stopping somewhere on the return trip to pickup something for the manuf. process (paint, cardboard, etc.).
