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.

    Otnot, I still have a 5E sxs trap 2 barrel set stashed away for that. Here is one of that gun, so we still will shoot doubles.

    Briley thin walls do not affect the value much as the expensive makers such as
    Purdey ect use them if there going to have screw in chokes. Bill

    Bill, nice looking gun and I agree about the thin walls. It gives the gun new life. I know several guys that are using 4E's and 5E's and 21's with thin walls to shoot sporting clays. Makes sense to me and it's good to see them out being used.

    It never ceases to amaze me how people react to modifying a gun. Why have a gun in the safe that you can't shoot well because the chokes are too tight, or if it kicks, or you can't get the muzzle flip out of it and you port the barrels; SO WHAT. It's your gun, make it shoot the way you want it to. Collector value is overrated, shoot your guns, and collect stamps or coins, or bottle caps, whatever your pleasure is.

    Beautiful piece william, this is an excellent example of the classic american shotgun, also with respect to the briley's fine choice. This gun was made prior to pattern tightening shot cups which generally needed full and fuller chokes to rival pattern effectiveness of todays mod/ imp mod. Congrats on owning two of them!

    I have a sugestion for people who do not like modified guns, don't buy one. Maybe the rest of us will get a better deal becasuse of that attitude.

    This is a beautifull gun. I know because I shoot with Bill and another thing he has shot it.

I hope all is well with you and Junior, he never would answer the phone on his birthday. Has the wife bought the mansion on the lake for you yet? Shoot well and stay warm, Bob
