Release triggers

What is the advantage to using a reverse trigger? So if you are standing at the line and you have to hold off because of some reason, trap failure or whatever what is your recourse at that point? thanks

It’s called a “release trigger.” If you have set it & then need to hold fire, you simply open your action while continuing to hold the trigger back. Once you have your action open, you can point the gun in a safe direction & safely release the trigger.

They make it easier to knock the old paint off the back of the trap house when it's time to repaint them.
When repainting ALL our facilities getting ready to host the ATA SW Zone shoot there were more shot pocks on the skeet houses than there were on trap houses. By a huge margin. We had to replace roofing because the damn skeeters shot up the flashing. The half-doors limiting portal size were shot up. And the downfield sides of the houses were a mess.

So don’t go there with your trap house crap.

I don’t see getting all excited about who shoots what. At my club, both the skeet houses and trap pits have been shot. Some of it was due to release triggers, and some due to overly excited shooters. Doesn’t matter who did what or when. Damage is done either way.

Precisely.
