On another thread I requested ideas for the 'ideal trap house'. Jim101 posted a photo (Thanks!) and I'd like to see more trap house photos posted on this thread. Let's see some trap houses! Thanks.

We have a practice of filling our machines while a squad shoots. Keeps the traps full and running. I don't think I would like to sit in that plywood one. Not with all the release triggers out there.

Looks like you had to add a little altitude to your traphouse when you added the Pat Trap, normderf.

Mobile traphouse, set up on skids, pulls easily behind a pickup or golf cart. Everything runs off of one 12 volt battery, thrower, oscillating motor, and wireless release that works from about 70 yards away! Took 2 afternoons to build and have less than $500 invested in everything seen in the picture! By the way it throws great targets and I built in all kinds of ways to adjust for perfect targets that don't curl. Target height can be adjusted down to the nearest 1/2 inch for perfect 9-10 ft. target (currently set to throw 9'2" at 10 yds in front of machine). It is light enough that 2 people can pick it up and put in back of truck to haul anywhere! It measures 7'6" wide and 3' tall.

As good as it gets, Mr. Mark

Here is a view from the 16 yard line. All the sheet metal was scraps left over from roof of shop we just built, still need to paint those green! Just built this little machine last weekend during all the snow we had and it still hasn't warmed up enough to paint yet, has been warm enough to shoot though!

Enjoy, Mr. Mark

Rich Mr Mark did say it had a oscillating motor so I took it for granted it does move to all the angles.
im sure Mr Mark will let us know for sure.
