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.

    I'm looking to buy a camcorder for filming clay targets in a reasonable price range, up to $500. Do you have any suggestions?

    Check out the "shotkam" . There was a link on here a few weeks ago. I believe they are in the less than $500 neighborhood. Try a search on "shotkam".

    Don't have any suggestions, but I do a number of shoot videos a year and post on YouTube.

    Under $500 will bring limitations.

    I don't find much use for built in memory so you may be able to purchase a better camera with funds available without same. Use memory cards and just insert into computer for editing.

    HD is a must.

    If you can find something that shoots more than 30fps it will help with slow motion shots.

    The small cameras are hard to steady. Tri Pod needed (a good one). If the tri pod is to lite, on windy days the wind will push it around.

    The smaller cameras have wind sound issues, so you always have to be thinking of your camera setup on windy days. You may want a camera where you can install a mike with a wind filter. Some of the smaller cameras don't have that option.
