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.

    You can't just put the box of shells in your pouch or belt holder? When a row is gone, it's time to change!

    I hate to sound stupid but why not shoot a row of 5 from the box and then get ready to move. After all - you have to dig one out of the next row. This just seems too simple. Maybe i am doing it all wrong.

    Victor, You will NEVER be Leo. You are too short and too skinny, plus not as good looking. EA!!

    Hi!
    I have never understood why shooters just dump their shells into one pouch or another and then wonder how many they have shot when they are in the thick of it on a station. Keep them in the box. ESPECIALLY if you're the squad leader. And, I like "readies" called by the scorekeeper. Then, everyone knows when to walk instead of having that one doofus try to mount the gun and call for a target when everybody has done a right-face to walk. I think keeping them in the box is the safest way to go. Then you KNOW how many you've shot. How does ATA'ers handle a situation where the scorekeeper loses count and the squad leader shoots a sixth shell at the station and doesn't walk. Surely this has happened before. Is it counted as "shooting out of turn", or is is just a do-over?
