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.

    Five rare photos depicting the early years of trapshooting. Check out the Ladies Day & "Couples" squad, notice the "puller" in the men's photo,the close up photo of the women...some look like they had a better day on the line then others! And my personal favorite the three ladies sporting their guns & ammo boxes in front of the Model A.....see the horse and wagons in the backround!All these amazing photos were taken at CT shoots in the early 1900's. These vintage photos would be a fine addition to anybody's trapshooting collection. Or perhaps a unique trophy idea or addition to for your club instead of the usual ones. A great gift idea also.... father's day just around the corner!Anyone who loves the sport would truly enjoy these photos of trapshooting history. 8x10 photos come double matted and ready for you to frame. $25.00 each/ free shipping. Buy 5 or more and get special discount.(they really do look wonderful framed!) Please contact Sara Baldwin Palmer (203) 300-7779 or sara@luksrealty.com (I hope you all liked viewing these pictures.)

    Anybody that can't appreciate these pictures is lost. I love seeing the Old Days of shooting. These are the men and women that kept this sport alive so we all could enjoy it. Lots of neat history there.
