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.

    I'm new to the sport and I'm looking for a good trap gun. Would prefer a 12 gauge combo o/u and un-single with adjustable comb. I have to keep with-in a budget as well.

    Brace yourself for allot of opinions on this one. Some sound advice. Some bad advice. And some hard to interpret advice.

    My two cents. You and only you has to feel good about your purchase. Take your time and make it count. And by all means try to shoot as many as you can. Multiple times if possible. And smile and thank the person who tells you his/her gun is the gun for you.

    Maybe it is and maybe it isn't. Only you will know. Read the post on here about serious competative shooters. That may help you in the decsion process. And is good all around advice to the new shooter in making up his mind on how far they want to go in this game.

    Good luck.

    You certainly are jumping in with both feet...and maybe a little over your head too for a newbie....I think you should just get a quality over /under ..which by virtue of weight kick less than any single, plus, has the ability to play ANY clay game..a Browning XT with 30" barrels will do everything great..including handicap...by the time you put a season or two through this and have your game down ,..you'll be able to make a much more educated leap into that next big frying pan
