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.

    Borrow or buy a bluebook, latest edition. Learn how to judge grade. Take it to a reputable shop that has someone who understands target shotguns, don't ask people to give you a value unseen...it isn't fair to you or whoever owns the guns.

    I have people call the shop all the time asking "how much is my old Browning worth. I got it in 196x. Whattaya mean I gotta bring it in? Can't you tell me?" I usually offer them fifty bucks unseen for an "over the phone" appraisal. One guy, who told me his gun was like new, brought one in. It wasn't a Browning as he'd said, it was a Brazilian Boito, and it wasn't like new unless it came new with deep pits, rust inside and out, and a stock that looked like he'd carved it out with a chainsaw.

    Five percent in the grade can mean hundreds of dollars in value.
