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.

    While cleaning out my deceased father's gun supplies I came across about dozen loaded solid brass 12 ga. shotgun shells. Just wondering if they are worth anything or should I just dispose of them ?

    You can still buy them. They are a pain to load as they take special wads, primers and waterglass to load them. I use to load them in 410 to shoot rabbits and 12 ga to shoot ducks. They work best in double barrels.

    I have some newer ones. The ones you have just might be older ones before the war or from the war. Post some pic and someone here will be able to tell you which ones they are.

    What's printed on the brass around the primer? If they are US as opposed to foreign, there is some collector interest in them.

    I have a shoebox full of them as well as some old never fired carboard shells. All are primed. A great uncle gave them to me 25 years ago & i think they are pre-WW2. Also have the felt wads, cutter & a couple other tools. I get them out on occasion to show people as a novelty.

    Got me thinking so I took some pictures for conversations sake. The brass are UMC & the cardboard are New Rival with a date of 1901 stamped into the head. If I recall, mthe old gentleman said they had to quit shooting because of the war....they could no longer get components.
