this is what I had in mind and was the first and ONLY defination which followed my thoughts:
"The enclosure housing the spring traps used in trapshooting and skeet."

the dsrest of the page was full of:
"Term used to define a crack house, or the surroundings in which a drug dealer or(trap star) would use to make their profit."

what's happening to our language?!

A lot more people know about the second definition these days than the first. Its a changing world.

I had never heard of the 'modern' defination... guess I'm just an old fudy-dudy (wooden boats fit in there somewhere)

Back in your day, they were called opium dens.

Now THAT'S the most (intentionally) funny thing you've posted in a long time!

Trap House... would that be what we used to call a 'bachelor pad'.
