My gun is really old. Can I still use it?
As long as your gun is in safe working order and does not have a damascus barrel, it
should be fine. NO EXPOSED HAMMERS are allowed.

Not necessarily. Guns used in Trap Shooting can be pump action, break action, or

are determined by the number of members on the team. Classes and Conferences are
announced about 1 week before the season starts.
