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.

    That is a real beauty. Nice photos! You might want to put the stock dimensions and chokes in the listing.

    That is a beautiful M-12. Perhaps the nicest one i've ever seen. Pricey but beautiful.

    If the engraver is actually Michel Courant I think it's an Australian woman who does really nice work.

    Can't see enough detail in the photo but I can't argue with Jack if he knows the history of the gun - all I can say is there is a woman engraver who also signs her name with just an "M" and her last name which look very similar. She does excellent work and I think Jaqua had a Perazzi she did earlier this year.

    I believe this engraver's last name is Courant. I'm not sure he's still around but his work is top notch -- usually multicolored with lots of gold line work. He upgraded a lot of pre-64 Winchesters. I've attached another example of his work.
