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.

    My take on this is simple. If i were to offer something for sale, the first person who said "I'll take it" is the new owner. The seller may have had the best of intentions of providing photos, but may have been distracted, got busy with other things, any number of reasons for not posting those pix.

    If i were standing on a street corner, offering an item for sale, the guy who raised his hand with an offer to buy would supersede the person who wanted to get a closer look.

    I used to work auctions and when you flinch, you lose out.

    Seller has the right to sell to whoever (or whoever not) he wishes. If you had and offer on the table, and it had been accepted, thats different. If I have something for sale, the first offer I receive that I'm willing to accept is the one that gets it. If I get an email from a potential buyer with an offer less than I'm asking, and I receive a higher offer before I have a chance to make contact with the first potential buyer, high cash takes it. I do try and give right of first refusal to the earliest respondent, but a firm "I'll take it", or a negotiated and accepted offer trumps everything else.

    Sorry, guys - wasn't trying to hide anything. I thought I had deleted the message when I was trying to correct grammatical errors. Reentered in the forum discussion side and then realized my original post was still in the for sale forum.

    If you want to continue the discussion go to the shooting forum.
