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.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    I have perhaps one of the oldest pigeon traps in existence. This is an extremely nice trap is made of Copper on the ouside and formed around wood. Has springs on the door to open which are not original as they are zinc plated, they could be changed with a standard non coated spring. This will make the ultimate collectors piece in any collection. I have owned this trap for about 10 years, and although I enjoy looking at it on the mantle, I'm trying to work a deal on a new SCO gun, so liquidating some of my high end stuff. 2000.00 shipped to your door. This will make any man cave complete! l.g.


    Please keep any comments about flyer shooting/pigeon shooting to p.m's rather than advertising on this thread. Thank you.

    I always enjoy seeing how America got things done before we had polymers. That is way cool.

    Ricky.... That is, indeed, a beautiful piece of flyer history! You're going to kick yourself in the butt for parting with it...... Dan

    That is cool. I would have never guessed what it was had you not identified it. Very neat piece of history.

    I don't see how it's possible to catch a pigeon with that thing.

    I will not tell anyone that you may shoot flyers, but pallets of RST Pigeon Loads may constitute a "clue".
