    Hi,

    I'm not a trapshooter but I bought a shotgun recently because it was just so nice, in such great shape.

    I found out after it's a trap gun. I was thinking about posting it for sale.

    But how will I know if anyone is interested in it as I'm sure there will be.

    I don't see any "Private Message" system or anything and I don't want to post my email address,

    Thanks,

    Mickey

    There will be a notification at the top of the page that you have a private message from someone.

    There is also a link there for private messages.

    When someone clicks on your name (or anyone else's), that opens the PM page.

    Whoops! Upon further review I spotted it. Thanks, Brian.

    Now how do I go about posting in the "Want to buy/Sell" forum? I can get to the forum okay, but I don't see how to start a new post. DUH!

    Sorry guys, I figured it out.

    If you're looking for a trap gun the one I will be selling is is a 1945 Remington Model 31 that was sent to Simmons Gun Specialties Inc. years ago for what I am told is the ideal trapshooting build-up.

    It's an easy 95-98% condition.

    I will take photos tomorrow and post it in the "Want to buy/For Sale Forum" will all the info I have been able to get on it.

    Thanks,

    Mickey

    Click on "Create a New Thread" at the top of the page, and follow the directions. Make absolutely sure you click on the correct section. It will even prompt you to make sure. Then type in your wording in the box. If you want to include pictures, click on the "Insert/Upload Image" link in blue and download them from your computer. Good luck.

    P.S. If you do it wrong you will know very shortly after. Unfortunately, you can not delete your thread. If you need any help PM me and I will try to help. Jon

    Jon, I thank you.

    This forum must have a HUGE folowing. It's 12:45 a.m. here and I've had 3 people answering my "new guy" questions.

    Trapshooters must be a late night bunch or something.

    Thanks fellas,

    Mickey

    You must be using good bait.

    "I don't see how to start a new post. DUH!"

    Thats funny, I am just curious though if you didn't see how to start a new thread. How did you start this one???????

    I just bought a boat because it was so pretty. I am not a sailor. I just found out it is a sailboat. Want to buy it? Sound fishy to you (excuse the pun)?
