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.

    I found these old 20 gauge shells. Are they worth anything?

    The Remington box is full of the original shells.

    The Peters box has 19 original shells and 6 Winchester paper shells.

    Shells are worth about $5 per box. Boxes are worth about $20 for the empty pair. Shoot the shells before they split the seams more than they already have. Jw

    I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone else. They don't make that old ammo any more. When it's gone you can't go down to the store and buy more. It's gone forever. Money wise it's worth nothing, but those old shells and boxes look great in a display case or shadow box. They are a part of our wingshooting heritage. That's where they are worth something.

    Very few 1 piece boxes have much value. If your Peters box was in really nice shape, it would retail for 20-25 bucks. Examples of 1 Piece boxes that are in demand are the Holiday boxes and the Browning boxes especially the smaller gauges in both
