1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    A friend has some 16 GA shells, circa 1958-59, maybe early 50's. He has a total of 24 shells:
    4 ea Remington Shur-shot #8
    2 ea Western Xpert #6
    18 ea Winchester Ranger #6
    The box is Winchester Ranger #6 shot, the price marked on the lid is $2.65.
    He also has 5 Peters HV 12 GA 0 Buck shells. Don't know how old they are but they go back a ways.

    Thanx,
    Billy

    25 to 50 cents at a gun show if sold individually, if your lucky.

    I'm a sucker for these old shells and buy them up every chance I get. The posters above are correct though, this kind of ammo usually sells for less than new current production stuff. (probably why I have so many)

    But there is a lot to be said for just keeping them and looking at them now and then.
