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.

    For those who are not aware, the first year's production of 90Ts went to the ATA Hall of Fame. Only fifty guns were made, each bearing a serial number unique to each state. Those numbers indicated the state and its order of admission to the U.S. As you can imagine from a production of just 50 guns in 12 months, a lot of hand fitting probably was involved. Theoretically, this is the 22nd 90T ever made OR, if they were produced in the order each state shoot was held, wherever Louisiana fell in that order.

    The guns were gloss-blued instead of matte, had some engraving and nice wood. They came in an Americase with Remington green lining and the ATA HoF logo embroidered inside the lid in gold. They were sold in a blind auction during their respective state shoot; the minimum bid was $3,300 and several sold for that amount. For example, a local Pennsylvania shooter placed the opening bid on South Carolina's "just to get the bidding started" and wound up with the gun. He sold it perhaps 10 years later to another local shooter who still uses it as his primary trap gun.

    They were and still are very attractive 90Ts.

    The original sideplate pictured a circular representation of the ATA hall of fame logo in gold on the left side and the right side pictured an outline of the state.The owners manual shows examples of the original HF sideplates

    If you put the original engraved sideplates back on you might get more play- even then you might have to reduce the price but this isnt going to get you anywhere
