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.

    It fits your hand in the sense of an Olympic Free Pistol grip. Your hand is locked in one position from movement because your shooting hand has the ONLY grip in the instrument. A big advantage in Free Pistol shooting where 0.01" off the first hole on the paper will put you from number 2 position to number 12.

    However I don't see the advantage in shotgun sport where you hold the shotgun with both hands, shoot a moving target with effective shot patterns of 40" or more. Your grip on the butt stock is only good for your trigger pull and keeping the stock on your shoulder. Forearm grip is more important.

    The biggest disadvantages are, it's very hard, almost impossible to reach the top lever with your shooting hand. And it's made for your hand, it'll not fit the next buyer's.

    Steve W. summarized the glove grip very well. Only thing I would add is that it is so ugly it would be hard to explain to someone what you had to pay to screw up a perfectly good walnut blank.

    They fit your hand like a glove! I can see where the problem with reaching the tang might arise.
