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.

    Own a part of trap shooting history. This raised stamp is on the trap table,

    THE EXPERT PAT. D NOV. 1 1892 THE SHAM BERLIN CARTRIDGE & TARGET CO. CLEVELAND O.

    Out of the 3 I've owned over the years, this one is by far the best. This has been very well protected. Tho, I never used it, it is in usable prestine condition. All springs and levers are intact and in really good shape for being well over 100 yrs. old. This one has been home keeped since I aquired it some 20 yrs. ago. Quite a conversation piece. More pics available upon request.
    250.00 SHIPPED. Will consider best offer, but not committing myself to it.

    They're fairly common at the flea markets. Usually see 2 or 3 each year.

    I also have one in black, but I don't think they are that common.

    Barrelbulge: maybe you are seeing the same one each time.

    Probably more common in Ohio, the cradle of American trapshooting. I know there's one in the ATA Hall of Fame. It used to be right near the doorway to the office. It was red in color as well.

    Wow,,it was one just like that that I first shot/worked in 1962. That is the way my Father introducted me to Trap shooting in So. CA. Completely manuel and operated from the "Pit". After a little bit, I got to where I could keep up with the shooters, loading, adjusting, and throwing targets. Brings back memories.

    I have to ask. Did they call for targets back then, as fast as they do today? LOL

    No,,but if you did not close your gun until the preceiding man/lady shot, I was ready with their "bird". You call too quick, you got NO target. It was fun, until I wanted to shoot too, then no one else wanted to "pull".

    If I recollect, the Expert was made by Chamberlain and Remington took those over similar to Hornady taking over the Pacific 366...

    Great piece of trap history!

    regards all,
