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.

    Someone here many years ago gave me the James Russell "Trapshooting Secrets" book. I think our deal was if I found it useful to send him what I thought it was worth. I found it almost worthless. Bunch of mind game gobbledygook and how to write trapshooting off of your taxes. I learned more from reading posts here and asking questions than from that book. If I could remember who sent it I'd return it.

    Agree with all the above. Not worth the money!! Buy any of the video`s, Campbell`s, Big Leo`s, Kiner`s. You will get much more out of them.

    Very good books on the secrets of trap shooting. Informative and well written. I feel lucky that I had sufficient cranial capacity to understand them. HMB

    Russell is just an average shooter. What kind of secrets could he know? My first trap shooting book was written by him and it created some bad habits and worthless ideas. Don't waste your time! Bill

    These. Books are written from a technical point of view, and he does justice in his books giving you all the technical ins and outs of trap shooting. The problem is, if you try to learn any sport from that aspect, it could really mess with your ability to learn the correct way ( or not I guess it depends on how you try to implement / interpret the info contained therein.). I have his books and use them as a "go to guide" when I hit a snag in my learning curve. But there is no way to write convey or express Tiger Wood's swing with words it has to be seen studied and analyzed..and practiced hundreds or thousands of times before you could even approach his technique... I hope this makes sense? DX

    His book on writing off your trapshooting expenses is tax fraud, pure and simple. His advertising should be banned from every shooting magazine just as
    it was for a well known shooter and gunsmith.
